Maintain Strength, Balance & Movement
Individual training is geared towards your individual needs. This process will start off by assessment, then activation, then we finish off with everyday movement patterns.
I certified as a Pilates instructor in early 2005 and trained at the Stott Pilates International training facility in Toronto. I love working with people, and making them feel confident as they move. The safe and effective training method of Pilates keeps clients strong and flexible as well as balanced. As I grew into my practice I felt the need to learn more about the body and biomechanics. That’s when I certified as an Integrated Movement Specialist with Dr. Evan Osar. Since then I have been able to help clients with conditions like Parkinson’s, acute neck pain, spinal stenosis and much more.
Pilates and Integrative Movement System helps individuals with the following:
Our studio welcomes people with all abilities. A good portion of our clientele come to us for help with acute or chronic issues (sometimes post rehab). Our work in this phase is usually geared towards teaching people how to incorporate a more efficient breathing strategy. During this phase we also teach our clients how to stack their body for optimum balance.
We progress to functional movement patterns such as squatting, pulling, pushing etc. As clients progress the workouts become more challenging to meet their new needs. Our studio well is equipped to address the needs of clients who are training for specific sport, competitively or they just like to challenge themselves with safe and effective high level training.
Work with me to maintain your mobility strength, balance and overall health and movement.
How we breathe directly correlates to our posture and alignment. Quick, shallow breaths can cause tightness in the body, especially in the upper back and neck.
Urinary incontinence and Stress Urinary Incontinence is something that many people are aware of or have heard someone close to them speak about. Of course, this is not limited to any segment of our population.
“I have been training with Tarannum for many years now, during which she has helped me through many aches and pains that have crept up on me as I have grown older. However, it wasn’t till just recently that I mentioned to her that I was having nerve pain (pins and needles) in my foot as the result of sciatica that I suffered many years ago. Since it was nerve pain, I assumed there was nothing to be done about it. The many medications I had tried gave me no help. So ,in passing, I mentioned it to Tarannum. The pain had been getting more and more severe. Tarannum immediately put on her thinking cap and came up with some breathing and posture exercises, and as a result, I have been pain free for the last two weeks. And I have been sleeping better, and able to relax without pain. Tarannum loves what she is doing. She teaches with enthusiasm and intelligence. She enjoys helping people, and they enjoy the benefits of her teachings”
“I could not recommend a better teacher or trainer for beginners or advanced Pilates and movement students. Tarannum’s direct openness and interest in your well-being makes her classes and interactions superb.”
Her training and expertise in Integrated Movement adds an enormous quality and insight to her precise teaching, demonstrations, explanations and corrections. She makes sure you do understand the posture or exercise in its fullest, physically feeling its power and incorporating it safely in your routine.”
“Tarannum Nasser is the best instructor I have had in over 15 years of Pilates lessons and training. She has the ability to explain and demonstrate each movement with such detail and accuracy that it is almost impossible not to get it, Should you still not get it, she will help you to understand how, with individual attention even in the middle of a class, because it does help us all.”
