Natalie Garcia

Owner/Instructor/Balanced Body Faculty

Natalie Garcia

From a young age I was intrigued by health and the human body. After certifying and teaching group fitness classes, personal training with the American Council on Exercise, and nutrition coaching with APEX I found a deeper passion in Pilates. Pilates offered something I hadn't found in any other fitness modalities.

I shifted my focus more towards the Pilates work and over the next eight years studio certified with Polestar Pilates and eventually Master Trained and became a Faculty member with Balanced Body. This training has allowed me to work with a wide range of clients from elite athletes to those with chronic pain. After years of teaching it still excites me to see the dramatic effect Pilates has both aesthetically as well as improving quality of life!

I now share my love of movement teaching clients and instructors to move and teach with passion and creativity. I am the owner of Purely Pilates Studio in Reno, Nevada and together with my staff of instructors have created a studio that is safe, welcoming, and that strives to maintain the highest standards in the Pilates field.

When I'm not at the studio I enjoy spending time with my husband and three kids. I have a passion for life and Pilates and look forward to sharing that with others!

Born and raised in Reno Nevada my passion for health and fitness started from an early age. Throughout school I played various sports including softball, basketball, volleyball and running. In 2005 I set out and accomplished the Rock-n-Roll Marathon in San Diego, CA. I am always looking for new ways to challenge my body, and started taking Pilates after the birth of my son Tyler in 2005 I was instantly hooked. In 2008 while pregnant with my second child Reagan, I decided to go through the instructor training so I could share my love for Pilates with others. . I love how my practice makes me feel, and am excited to have the opportunity to share this feeling with others through teaching.
