Group Reformer Gentle & Focused


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

Erica Lawless

Erica discovered Pilates as a way to regain strength, balance, and control after recovering from major spinal fusion surgery for scoliosis in 2002. As a dancer, she learned the value of building stronger core muscles in order to improve postural alignment, prevent further injury and pain, and reintegrate complex movement back into her body safely and effectively. As a Pilates practitioner and instructor, she has since developed a greater appreciation for the method and it's focus on functional movement, uniform muscle use, flexibility, and awareness and hopes to help others realize the benefits of Pilates according to each individual's needs and goals. Erica received her Pilates training through the Body Arts and Science International (BASI) Comprehensive Teacher Training program and holds a BA in Sociology from Loyola Marymount University.

Amanda Macleod

Cultivated in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, blossomed in NYC, and transplanted in LA. Amanda has spent her life dedicated to a diverse array of physical pursuits including yoga, alpine skiing, whitewater kayaking, biking, and any other adrenaline-inducing mountain sport she can get her hands on.
She found Pilates after a debilitating back injury took her away from her dance training. Through a dedicated practice, she came back stronger than ever before and was able to return to her career as a professional dancer. She holds a BFA in Dance from Rutgers University, and received her comprehensive Pilates certification from Body Arts Science International, where she apprenticed under the mentorship of Rael Isacowitz. She loves helping her clients deepen their awareness and connection to themselves, and believes that Pilates provides unparalleled strength and balance to any lifestyle.
A group reformer class with 3-6 students.  Emphasis on working a bit slower than other mixed level classes, with attention to individual students needs for modification of movements. Good for beginners; those returning to exercise.  There may be attention to rehabilitation if needed.
