Mary Beth fell in love with Pilates shortly after completing her graduate studies in Physical Therapy. While in PT school, she found out she had scoliosis. She began looking for the best forms of exercise to address the scoliosis imbalances and found Pilates! It didn’t take long for her to realize that Pilates was a life-changer and wanted to share its benefits with others.
Mary Beth continued her training and research in Scoliosis and became certified last year in the well-researched Schroth Method. This method focuses on improving lung capacity with specific breathing exercises, and improving 3D trunk shape has been shown to stop curve progression in adolescents and reduce pain in adults with scoliosis.
Mary Beth was first certified with Polestar Pilates International in 2004 and has been teaching rehab-oriented Pilates since then at various locations. She has worked as a physical therapist for 25 years and enjoys using her PT skills combined with Pilates exercises that focus on the areas needing the most work.
