Maranda loves to move and to challenge her mind and body. Born and raised in Muncie, Indiana, she was heavily involved in dance and gymnastics from age eight until graduating high school. In 2009, Maranda decided to continue her passion for dance at Ball State University, where she received a B.S. in Dance Performance with a Sports Medicine minor. Being active growing up, she was intrigued with how the body moved and worked. Having several injuries from gymnastics, Maranda enjoyed learning how to heal her body. In 2010, while studying at Ball State, she was introduced to Pilates. In just one semester, she noticed a difference in her strength and awareness and an improvement in her dancing. She knew she wanted to continue Pilates. In 2015, while living in Chicago, Maranda finally decided to take her love for Pilates a step further and signed up for the BASI Pilates Comprehensive Program.
Maranda has been teaching dance since 2010 and Pilates since 2015. She loves to share her love for Pilates with her dance students so that they can discover the same benefits from Pilates as she did. Maranda wants to be able to help our Members find their own body awareness to reach whatever their goals may be. Understanding how our bodies move and learning how to make connections within our body can help us find balance within our mind and body to feel great! She teaches group classes and is available for private training. Maranda and her husband moved to Nashville from Chicago in January 2019, and they are enjoying the nice weather and change of scenery.
