We had the good fortune of connecting with Nathalie Garrison and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nathalie, as a parent, what do you feel is the most meaningful thing you’ve done for them?
As a mother of two boys, I realized very early that I have to let them make their own decisions. I wanted them free from what we thought and therefore they will build, explore, and experience life. More importantly I wanted to let them leave the nest with this idea that they will do what ever they want, capable of everything by thinking out the box. Gladly my two sons puch the envelope, which is very very inspiring!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
When I discover the Pilates Method 15 years later it clicked immediately because not only I had found a real physical method but I would be able to teach the way I liked. The method is like a physical language to be learn and the only way to optimize it is to understand what you are doing. By using a comprehensive approach I guide my clients to become committed to their own benefits. After two studios both in France and in Oklahoma. Now settled in Florida , I have decided to design Pilates private program. I wanted to go further with the idea of alignment which is one of a Pilates principle, by targeting mental alignment as well. . I started a training to be a mental Coach and become a certified life coach. A mental Coach leads their clients to actions and make a move professionally and or personally speaking. I had found my perfect match! Strengthen a body that allows people to take steps, with a mental capable of actions. Both Body and Mental ready to move on!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am a new Floridian but my short experience showed two different aspects of te area. North palm beach first with these gorgeous houses designed for horses, and second Hollywood, with this specific location between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. I fell in love with Hollywood, but my experience is not long enough to recommend some places…

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
It might be a cliché to dedicate your success to your family but when your family is amazing you have to, so, I will thank my parents, my sister and my sons for encouraging and supporting me along the way. I definitely dedicate them my story …
