When she began to teach Pilates, Mary had studied sixteen years: six and a half years twice a week with Joe, Clara and Hanna, followed by 7 years with Bob Seed and was into her 4th year out of 7 with Romana. It was understood at that time that teaching the Pilates Method required at least 10 years of doing it for oneself. In 1975 Mary was also into her sixteenth year of weekly Pilates lessons for herself – a habit and privilege which she has continued counting up to 50 years of weekly lessons now in 2009 and ongoing. “I consider it one of the smartest things I’ve ever done – to take my own weekly Pilates lesson for myself, always with the eyes of a gifted teacher to guide me onwards. It has insured that I have never stopped the process of opening into my body and becoming more at one and in harmony with it.”
“In my new personal space at home I have the studio in two sunny rooms. Instead of the two or three of everything as was so in the larger studio, there is one of each piece of equipment plus a gorgeous ladder up one wall. It all fit in amazingly well, and I’m very happy with it. Northampton days for analytic and Pilates clients (or both at the same time for Pilates Plus Psyche) are every Friday and Saturday. When the “Passing the Torch Group Mentoring Program” with Balanced Body University (BBU) starts, weekends in Northampton will extend to 3 days, Friday through Sunday.”
