Continuing Education in Pilates

After completing my Comprehensive Pilates training, I wanted to develop a deeper understanding of the work so I continued to study Pilates with second generation Master Teacher, MeJo Wiggin.  MeJo was taught Pilates by Master Teacher Romana Kryzanowska, who was taught Pilates by Joseph Pilates.  I continue to study three times a week with MeJo Wiggin and in 2014, I completed her prestigious Classical Syllabus®.   I strive to teach the Pilates System as MeJo teaches me, as authentically as possible.

I am constantly attending workshops and training seminars on everything from Human Anatomy to sessions taught by Pilates Masters Mary Bowen, Jay Grimes, Lori Coleman-Brown, Dorothee Vandewalle, Peter Fiasca, Clare Dunphy, Chris Robinson and Sean Gallagher.   As I continue my studies, the magic and power of Pilates continues to inspire me as a teacher.. There is no need to adapt or modify the work using props or gimmicks. Pilates is a life changing system. The deeper you understand it, the more it changes your body. As your body changes, so does your understanding of the work.

I am constantly learning more about Pilates and strive to bring my enthusiasm for Pilates to my Farmington Valley Pilates students.

"I've been taking Pilates three times a week for several years.  Six months ago I started working with Mary and the changes in my core strength have been remarkable!  Even my doctor noticed!!  Mary makes sure I understand not only how to do Pilates correctly but why the exercises should be done that way too."
