Pilates Mat class


This class is taught by:

Anastasia Baratta

Anastasia Baratta views Pilates as a body art and healing modality. After years of pain and discomfort due to postural imbalances, the practice of Pilates realigned her body and she feels more alive and stronger than ever. She has a BA in Education from Northern Arizona University and received her Pilates training through BASI and the Kane School in NYC, NY. In addition, Anastasia is a Reiki practitioner, certified Life Coach, and Sexuality Educator. Her mission is to empower herself through empowering others

Amanda Sugar

In 2002, Amanda earned her Pilates Teacher Certification from Perfectly Fit in La Canada, CA. She has been teaching continuously in Los Angeles ever since & uses that knowledge in her dance classes.

Amanda studied Intercultural Choreography at UCLA. She has 20 years of Ballet experience, most recently studying with Edouard Kouzmitch in Los Angeles and Angel Corella in Spain. Additionally, she has trained in tap, Bharata Natyam, Korean Dance, Ba Gua Zhang Tai Chi and Ariel arts.

That diversity of dance experience not only proved that Classical Ballet is her true passion, but that a strong Ballet technique creates a foundation which a dancer can utilize in any dance discipline.

Above all else, Amanda believes Ballet should be a fun and rewarding addition to everyone's life.

Joseph Pilates, creator of The Pilates Method, designed the original classic hour long Pilates mat workout as a mindful movement practice that increase core strength, flexibility, balance and coordination.  Our matclasses vary, depending who is teaching. Pilates props (we provide them) may or may not be used. Beginners to advanced students welcome.
