My husband just had a hip replacement and wants to start moving again. It has been extremely hot out and many gyms have closed during Covid19. Shari and Julene at Shar Barta Wellness have been encouraging him to join a Pilates class. He finally did and he is so happy to start getting back into shape. He had his first class with Julene and he loved her. She is so knowledgeable and supportive. I can't wait for him to meet Shari who is an Occupational Therapist and will have more information to help with his recovery. The instructors at Shari Barta Wellness are so helpful. It is such a pleasure to work in an environment where you receive so much individualized attention because classes are small and instructors are so well trained with the various equipment and techniques.
I was first introduced to Pilates in 2016 by my Mom back at home in Indonesia and was instantly hooked. She suffered from scoliosis and I saw how Pilates helped her. I am PMA certified and received my Pilates teacher training from The Pilates Center in Boulder in 2018 where I studied with a number of 2nd generation teachers trained by students of Joseph Pilates, as well as a lot of wonderful experienced teachers. During my pregnancy in 2019 I learned about prenatal pilates from my mentor. I would love to help other women to reap the numerous benefits pregnancy pilates has to offer.
Pilates has not only helped me stay healthy, it has helped me during childbirth and the recovery after childbirth. I truly believe pilates is an exercise for every person at every stage of their lives.
