We use assessments to understand the client’s posture and movement patterns at the beginning of the session and note the changes from start to finish.
We look for restricted ranges of motion, discomfort, pain (during the assessment ), and balance.
We also closely check the client’s alignment and the natural breathing pattern.
Common assessments we may use:
- Neck motion
- Arm motion
- Trunk rotation
- Single leg stance (if tolerated)
Work with me to maintain your mobility strength, balance and overall health and movement.
“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.”
