When was the last time you walked into a fitness center, studio, or class and felt like your teacher was your best friend?
Someone who you can trust, look up to, and motivates you to do and be better...
“I love personal training and the mystery in discovering what connects the dots in someone’s spirit, mind, and body.”
Are you looking for a supportive, welcoming environment to further your fitness and wellness goals? Are you looking for a diversely trained instructor who tailors each of her classes to what the students want to learn and gain from the class, while making the whole experience seem like fun and not “exercise”?
If you answered “yes” to either question (and we’re guessing that you did!), then you definitely need to meet Catherine!
Here’s what you need to know
The most recent addition to the Sense of Balance family and now serving as a Pilates Instructor with a Classical Mat Certification from Peak Pilates, Catherine Anastasia Nelson formerly studied a wide range of dance techniques including Jazz, Modern, Ballet, Pointe, and Ceccetti technique, while training with former Rockette Alzine Straub at the Cuppett’s Performing Art Center from age 4 to 19.
Catherine also received a BFA in performance with an emphasis in Grotowski-based movement and stage combat in 2006. Catherine then began her journey to becoming a comprehensively certified Pilates Instructor in 2013, first at The Fitness Guru, a boutique gym in Dumbo, Brooklyn, NY and then at the Pilates Centre LLC in Norwalk, CT before moving to the Penns Valley region of central PA in December 2016.
Now here’s what you really need to know!
Catherine’s pilates classes are so much fun! She provides an excellent balance between teaching the technique and fundamentals of pilates, while still keeping her classes fresh, contemporary, and ever-evolving as she continues to grow and further her own training. You can begin or continue on your own pilates journey by joining Catherine at Sense of Balance for Classical Mat classes (beginners welcome!) or Springboard/Reformer sessions. Catherine will also be continuing on the path to a fully comprehensive pilates certification, culminating in one on one personal training.
