Nancy has experienced first hand how Pilates can change a person's life. In November of 2005, she ruptured her left Achilles tendon while playing paddle tennis. She spent eight weeks in a cast and the only thing she could do was get on the floor and do Pilates. Through true dedication to Pilates for those eight weeks, she gained enormous core strength, which helped her through the rigors of Physical Therapy. By May 1st, 2006, she was hitting balls on the tennis court. After a full recovery, she decided to get certified in Pilates and in 2009 became an instructor.
Nancy believes that Pilates teaches people of all ages how to move their bodies in a more efficient way. By incorporating Pilates into an exercise program, one can alleviate physical issues such as back pain, shoulder problems, postural issues and joint pain. Pilates is as much for children and teens as it is for adults. Nancy has trained the Piranha's Swim Team at the Darien YMCA and has helped teens understand how to use their core strength in all of their sports.
