Pilates had a huge an impact on her ability to come through the challenges of surgery, radiation and rehab. Continuing education is such an important part of our growth and often gets overlooked when we are teaching for awhile. Marcy is always looking to enhance movements of her clients and to improve the quality of their lives: Getting in better shape, stronger, improve sports performance (including NFL Jets) or to living pain free.
