I have been teaching for 16 years. I was Classicly trained & have embraced many other continuing education intructors with a variety of backgrounds that have given me a well-rounded process of training to support my clients.

 

I absolutely love how Brooke Siler, author of The Pilates Body, shares what this movement art is all about and its key principles to understand:

 

‘Pilates is an exercise program that coordinates mind and body to support each other on the path to overall fitness: “sane mind in a sound body” is it’s goal. Pilates is a unique combination of stretching and strengthening. Each exercise has been carefully thought through, as has each detail of each exercise. As a result, a Pilates workout will not leave you tired and sore, but you can be sure that it will condition and strengthen every part of your body. As you learn the system, you will be amazed at the quality of results you can achieve.’

KEY PRINCIPLES

Certain key principles are crucial to the effectiveness of a Pilates workout. If you remember them and practice them diligently, you will progress quickly.

CONCENTRATION

I order to make the crucial mind-body connection, Pilates requires you to pay close attention to each movement you perform and how your muscles respond. So stay focused! Concentration is the most important part of any Pilates exercise. Without it you can neither progress nor achieve the benefits of this unique system.

CONTROL

Pilates requires elegant, precise muscle control. If you let your movements become sloppy, you will lose the benefits of the exercise. Together, concentration and control help you avoid injury and produce the best possible results.

CENTER

Most of us think of our arms and legs as our primary tools for mobility. Pilates asks you to shift your focus from your limbs to your center or “powerhouse.” The powerhouse which includes the abdominals, low back, hips and buttocks is the source of energy for your whole body. Pilates teaches you to inhabit the center of your body, engaging your abdominals, low back, hips and buttocks and thus creating stability and fighting gravity. Because all the major organs of the body are housed in your center, learning correct positioning can favorably affect internal well-being.

FLUIDITY

Pilates is as graceful as it is economical. One movement flows into another. No movement is isolated or static. A PIlates workout should feel as smooth as dancing or swimming. Smooth transitions from movement to movement are keys to efficiency and grace

PRECISION

In Pilates, every single movement has a purpose. Thus, you will want to learn each exercise precisely. You can’t be said to have mastered an exercise without having mastered every one of it’s details! However, don’t worry about learning it all perfectly right away and don’t overthink every tiny detail as you go. While you don’t need a lifetime to see results, Pilates is a lifelong study. Eventually, getting each detail right will be second nature

BREATH

The fundamental purpose of Pilates is to increase circulation and oxygen flow to the brain and the rest of the body. By forcing toxins out of your system through deep exhalations and refilling the body with pure air through full inhalations, you maintain and reserve energy to get through the trials of daily life. To reach this goal most efficiently, you must learn to breathe correctly.Thus, each exercise is coordinated with the breath to help you get the most from the movement.

IMAGINATION

Your most important fitness ally is your mind. The more creative you are in your workouts, the more connected your mind and body become.

INTUITION

If a movement doesn’t feel comfortable or natural, don’t do it! Pilates should never hurt and you should never work through pain. Always trust your sense of what feels right to you and what doesn’t. Of course, there’s a difference between the satisfying feeling of exertion you get when you work hard and the pain that comes from strain or overexertion. Learn to recognize the difference and work within your limits.

INTEGRATION

Pilates isn’t just a way to attain a long, lean body: It’s a tool for living. What we learn on the mat has impact off the mat, enabling us to move through everyday experiences with more grace, balance and ease. Pilates can and should be used in conjunction with other sports without altering its fundamental principles. It shows you how to care for your body by teaching economy of movement, correct breathing, proper posture and alignment.

REVIEWS

SEE WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY

“I finally like working out! Pilates with Victoria is challenging yet fun.  Because she continually requests my feedback, she knows when to push me or when to ease up.  She weaves her knowledge & expertise into each session making the subtle adjustments to my body’s positioning that not only increases the effectiveness of my workout, but decreases any unnecessary pain. And just as important, the variety she offers completely dispels any chance of boredom.
Thank you Victoria!’

“Pilates with Victoria is awesome! I love how my 68-year-old body is feeling so good and looking so lean!”

KRISTIN

I first met Victoria in April, 2019. She was my Master Trainer for my Comprehensive Pilates Training in Atlanta, Ga. For three weeks I had the privilege of being trained, tutored, mentored and taught by her. I quickly learned of her extensive and expert knowledge in the practice of all things Pilates and was truly impressed. Beyond that, she is an incredible motivator with a kind, compassionate soul, and her energy is contagious. Her creativity and support have helped me to become a confident and complete instructor and proficient in my own personal practice. She is always available to help with specific concerns and questions about how to improve my personal and professional Pilates workouts. I would 100% train with her as my instructor on a consistent basis if proximity allowed. Choosing Victoria and Bentley Bodies to enhance your strength, fitness and wellness is one of the best things you can do for yourself!

Donna

Victoria Bentley is truly amazing to work with! She puts SO much personal care and attention into each client to make sure that each workout fits their individual goals and takes into account what their body is capable of. Whether you’re looking to start working out for the first time, looking for a lower impact complement to add to your current workout routine, recovering from an injury, or if you want to tone up and work on your balance and core strength, Bentley Bodies is the perfect place! I can’t believe how great my results are in such a short period of time.

RENEE

Professional, knowledgeable, Intuitive and strong, Victoria has been my massage go to gal for years. As a licensed Pilates instructor, health coach and massage therapist, Victoria is the whole package. She understands the human body incredibly well which makes her an even better massage therapist, working with various massage techniques. Having endured years of sports injuries, when things go out of wack, Victoria is always able to make me feel soooo much better…..every time. I could not recommend her more! 

ANNIE

Victoria was there when I did not realize I needed her.  In our weekly sessions, she guided me through so many life issues to really understand and drill down to truly what I needed to do to heal both my mind and body.  She addressed it all – physically, mentally and emotionally – professionally with such compassion and care.  I highly recommend Victoria for all your wellness needs.
