ProNatal Certified Coach
Born in Tel Aviv, Israel and raised in Paris, Gali Dotan moved to New York City after a long career in the performing arts to study at the world-renowned Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance. There she graduated receiving not only her professional Dancer Certification but also her Graham Teacher Certification.
As a trained dancer, Gali has always felt a special connection to the movements of the body. Her passion for the art of dance and teaching made her transition to physical training seamless. She quickly rose through the ranks as a beloved trainer of New York institutions such as Physique 57 and Barry’s Bootcamp, where she began to hone and perfect her teaching style. Regardless of the studio, her students are always greeted with a uniquely positive and encouraging energy, and enveloped in a fun and energetic atmosphere, which of course focuses on body and form over all else.
Gali’s greatest achievements come from the personal connections she has made as a Personal Trainer. In order to better herself, she fills most of her free time studying and improving her methods specifically for the Pre and Postpartum population. Gali is currently NASM certified and holds many other certifications in pre and postnatal fitness (Diastasis, C section recovery, prolapse, etc) She caters her programming to each individual’s needs and abilities. Gali is that unique mix of ability and intellect combined with empathy and encouragement – that being said, don’t be fooled, she’ll also kick your butt!
