She first discovered Pilates during college in New Hampshire, and was instantly drawn to it's emphasis on posture and form. She became an AFAA certified Personal Trainer in 2010 after helping friends and family make healthier choices and soon thereafter started taking mat Pilates workshops and teaching group classes. Natalie successfully ran her own Personal Training business in Providence, RI before relocating to Los Angeles and beginning her studies with Stott Pilates at John Garey Fitness in Long Beach. She completed her Intensive Reformer course in April 2015 and Cadillac, Chair and Barrel the following August, and now focuses exclusively on Pilates.

Ana Debasa

Ana Debasa was born in Santa Cruz California, and moved to LA when she was 18. She dabbled in acting for a little while, but her real passion has always been Animals. She started working with horses at a young age. It was through a horseback riding accident that she found Pilates. It was through Pilates that she was able to heal herself. She then became certified in 1999 at Perfectly Fit, a Classical Pilates Studio. She worked at Perfectly Fit for a few years before coming to Mind-Body Fitness Pilates Studio in 2001, and has worked here ever since!

Genevieve Lee

Genevieve Lee received her certification from Body Arts and Science International (BASI), in February 2012. As a former dancer and yogini, Genevieve developed a keen eye for alignment and a solid understanding of movement. She first discovered Pilates after seeking alternative ways to treat a chronic knee injury. It was only after regularly doing Pilates that she was finally pain free. This life changing experience and the encouragement of her teachers led her to pursue a career in Pilates. She hopes that she can help her clients find the same mind body connection and fulfillment through Pilates that she has. Genevieve enjoys working with students of all levels and abilities.

Jen Waldman

Jennifer Waldman (Jen) was born with severe scoliosis. Doctors were set on putting her in a back brace for the rest of her life. Her parents insisted on enrolling her in Ballet Classes instead. This helped her tremendously, and in 1985 she was introduced to Pilates. She fell in love with Pilates in her first session. Pilates helped her like nothing else could. She was fully certified in 2006 at Live Art Pilates under the tutelage of Siri Dharma Galliano. Jen has studied and taught Pilates now for over 30 years. She is continually amazed at how much there is to learn. She loves to help others to learn as much as she has, and to help them in the process. Her education includes such greats as: Romana Kryzanowska, Siri Dharma Galliano, Mari Windsor, Peter Fiasca, and Jay Grimes.
