Born and raised in Costa Mesa, this mother of two is passionate about movement. Maryann, a former professional dancer, was introduced to Pilates while studying ballet and modern dance at The California Institute of the Arts. “We were required to take reformer classes to keep our bodies in top form.” After college and kids, Maryann turned back to Pilates for fitness and a career. She enjoys the technical aspects of teaching, where the slightest change in form can make a huge impact. “I love the effect moving your body has on the mind and body, it can solve so many of our emotional/physical problems!” She has her Pilates Certification through Orange Coast College in 2010, and is constantly furthering her education to keep her workouts fun and fresh. She most recently completed a certificate for Pilates for MS.
