Reut’s favorite quote is, “with the body, mind, and spirit functioning perfectly as a coordinated whole, what else could reasonably be expected other than an active, alert, disciplined person? Moreover, a body freed from nervous tension and over-fatigue is the ideal shelter provided by nature for housing a well-balanced mind that is always fully capable of successfully meeting all the complex problems of modern living.” Reut was certified for pilates through a boaz nhaissi course called ‘Contrology 34’ which is a traditional pilates from Joseph’s Pilates’ book, “Return to Life Through Contrology.”
Originally she was a dancer in ballet for thirteen years before she went to the army. After coming back to dance, Reut discovered that her body had all kinds of injuries. “It wasn’t even from the army, it was from dancing,” she said, “it’s the right movements for a show but not necessarily what’s good for alignments.” To Reut, through learning new ways of adjusting posture was a form of healing on her body. “When you are not connected to your body then also everything else is not connected,” Reut expressed in an understanding tone. Being so inclined towards movement all her life, she knew that she would wind up teaching something involved with it.
Reut already knew how to get moving, that’s how she had found herself teaching pilates for the past four years and has been practicing yoga for the past five. Her passion for relieving tension in the body now leds her to study Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which helps enhance her skills of understanding what the body needs. The pilates class she teaches at Studio Sol focuses on core sculpting and basic movements the body should be familiar with on a daily basis. Through Reut’s methods of strengthening and stretching, students are able to give themselves and their bodies an hour of being present. “To know what’s going on in their bodies and basically how that reflects on themselves,” that is what Reut would love to get across to her students in their practice.
