Marie’s love of movement and music started at a young age. Growing up as an army brat in England and Germany, she studied classical piano, ballet and opera.
Marie was introduced to Pilates after a knee injury and the onset of arthritis limited her ability to engage in aerobics and trail running. Pilates has played a vital role in keeping Marie injury and stress-free. Marie was trained in the Romana Classical Tradition by Master teacher Zoe Hagler Marcus and received her certifications through Power Pilates and Pilates Method Alliance.
She continues to be inspired by the words of Joseph Pilates:
“We retire too early and we die too young. Our prime of life should be in the 70’s and old age should not come until we are almost 100. If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.”
