Through her own practice of the method Mary has become dramatically stronger and alleviated a back issue caused by a fall during pregnancy 24 years ago.
Mary’s philosophy is “Life is Motion" TM
We rarely give any thought to the way we move UNTIL we begin to develop aches and pains. Mary believes education is the key and the Pilates Method teaches the student "good movement" breaking movements patterns that may have been established over a long number of years. It is a journey, initially of discovery, followed by education – how we treat the “cause” not the “pain”.
What characterises Menezes Method instructors is their detailed anatomical and biomechanical understanding AND the precision of their instruction.
