Originally from Boston, Mari is a recent Philly transplant. Fully trained on the mat through Balanced Body, she is currently enrolled in full apparatus training through the Pilates program at Drexel University. Mari fell in love with Pilates a number of years ago, as the practice taught her to approach her physical and mental health in an intuitive way, and she loved how emotionally empowered and physically strong she felt after each class. She loves how precise and purposeful the practice is, and she wants her students to gain strength, stability and really challenge themselves throughout her classes. While constantly looking to help her clients challenge both their bodies and minds, Mari believes that hard work, discipline and confidence will help them accomplish their goals.

Pilates Series: Beginner
Have you ever left a Pilates class saying "WOW, that was really hard, but I don't know if I was doing it right"? If yes, then this is the PERFECT workshop for you.
The first of our 3-part Pilates series, the Beginner Pilates workshop will serve to lay the groundwork for any successful practice. In this back-to-basics workshop, we will revisit the fundamentals of our Pilates practice to help you better understand each exercise. This will help ensure that you are most effectively using Pilates to strengthen and tone your entire body.
This workshop, however, is not just for beginners. Many intermediate, and even advanced, students develop habits that over time serve to detract from their progress within their Pilates practice. This is the perfect opportunity to reset and progress to the next level.
The workshop will be 2 full hours - 1 hour of break-down instruction, and a 1 hour class. Both portions of the workshop will be lead by Hally Bayer and Mari Rubin.
