Pilates has had such a positive impact on my life, I look forward to my sessions with Mara, her professionalism and calm teaching methods make learning enjoyable.
I have been practicing Pilates since
2010 and completed my Pilates Mat certification at Concord Pilates
in 2014. I am a former competitive Master Rower and an avid
exerciser. I enjoy the balance of participating in diverse athletic
activities. In addition to Pilates I incorporate power walking,
indoor cycling, and swimming to my weekly routine.
In 2015 I learned that I had
osteoporosis. The diagnosis has been a positive life changing event
for me. And, it has also led me to add new exercise activities
which I am enjoying greatly. I have added three weight training
sessions to my weekly routine. I now also practice Buff Bones® and
recently became a Licensed Buff Bones® Instructor. Buff Bones® is a
medically endorsed system of movement that strengthens bones and
balance. It’s a great workout for anyone.
Since starting my certification
training here, I have embraced the Pilates philosophy at Concord
Pilates as initiated by Joseph Pilates and integrated by studio
owner Mara Sievers. I strive to make my classes a reflection of how
these two visionaries approach Pilates, exercise and movement. Now
I’m very excited to instruct Buff Bones® classes at Concord
Pilates. Clients who have osteopenia or osteoporosis and who are
looking for a challenging yet safe Pilates workout can add Buff
Bones® to their exercise routine. I look forward to bringing these
benefits to the clients of Concord Pilates.
