Maria is a Ventura County native, and she lives in Channel Islands Harbor, California. Her love for Pilates likely started years ago, as she was quite active in Classical Ballet as a youth. She has always been a student of physical science, and is forever looking for the “why and the how” when presented with a technique that can benefit the overall well-being of a person. She has practiced Pilates for over 20 years as a participant, and recently she has taken that interest to the next level by gaining her certification in the Club Pilates program. Her attraction to Pilates is attributable to the mind-body connection and awareness you receive from the practice of Pilates. She enjoys teaching and is excited to share her love of Pilates with classes that safely challenge and empower members.
In Maria’s off-time, she enjoys cooking and spending time with her husband Steve, and their six children and four grandchildre
