Nyla Newman

Program Director

Nyla Newman has been teaching Pilates for over 25 years and yoga for 23. It has been a lifelong love of the body and it's potential. The blessing of being trained by first and second generation Pilates greats, has given her a deep appreciation for both the contemporary ingenuity and the depth of the classical work. Nyla is also a certified yoga instructor and trained in 5 styles. She owned and operated a Pilates and yoga studio in Colorado Springs where besides group instruction, she specialized in personalized rehabilitative programs. Nyla has instructed national teacher trainings and large group workshops in both Pilates and yoga, created a yoga program for the US Olympic downhill ski team, and worked with many professional athletes. Her comprehensive background includes being certified for Thai Massage, The Rossiter System, OOV, a GZ Sobel’s Parkinson’s Network instructor and Metamorphosis Reflexology. Informing her work includes intensive training with Rael Isacowitz, Eric Franklin, Liz Koch, Ida Thomas, Daniel Vladeta and more. A traumatic brain injury opened the door to her fascination with how training the brain can upregulate our entire system and affect our body's potential thus leading her to the OOV and Z-Health. She embraces a Somatic approach to her work and desires for everyone she works with to have the highest functioning body and brain they are capable of, so they can enjoy the things they love in life.

Pam Reitan

My mission is to transform student’s physical, mental and spiritual health through applying the principals of Pilates. Through this work, I provide personalized assessment, motivation, and attention to form to achieve freedom of motion in daily movement, better posture, increased muscle tone and peace of mind. I specialize in correction of spinal alignment and muscle imbalance using the fundamentals of Pilates based on The Method Pilates by Joan Briebarts, PhysicalMind Institute. I strive to empower students to learn efficient movement patterns that reduce excessive wear and tear on joints. Students learn to strengthen postural and proprioceptor muscles in a kind, supportive environment. The focus on the alignment, proper firing of kinetic chains of muscle engagement and breathing is meditative and transformational, rejuvenating mind, body and soul. The focus is on progress, not perfection. The interpersonal relationships nurtured in class provide a positive community. Practicing Pilates leads to a physical and spiritual awakening that brings a sense of strength, joy, and peace. 


Pam brings almost 20 years experience teaching wellness and correct movement, and Reel Performance is delighted to have her on the team.
