Marea spent her young life studying classical ballet. She learned discipline and always relished the fun. Due to injuries she was forced to quit her professional ballet pursuits and went on to college, graduating with a BA in English Literature/Writing. Never losing her love of movement, she practiced yoga and continued ballet, for fun. Marea began the study of Classical Pilates by Romana Kryzanowska and has been teaching Classical Pilates since 1999.
What Marea finds most wonderful about Pilates is the internal strength and mental confidence it gives to those who practice it. She uses humor and her years of experience to help each student reach beyond their limits. Marea enjoys working with people of all ages and interests to help them gain deeper insights into their bodies, healing their injuries and most profoundly how Pilates can change your life by integrating its principles into everyday awareness.
