“Pilates is the answer to aging.” That’s the philosophy of Nancy, who is a living testament to that belief. Nancy spent her career working for the federal government. Sitting at a desk, she suffered from the stiffness and pain of arthritis. But since starting Pilates, that’s no longer the case. “I get out of bed in the morning, and I’m standing up straight.” Nancy inspires others “of a certain age” with her vigor and vitality as she teaches mat and apparatus classes, private sessions, and travels the world seeking adventure and fun.
Nancy’s superpower is in her combination of commitment and perseverance. Most people would quit practicing forward lunges (if they could not do so without holding on) well before they got to 875.
After she graduated from UMass with a degree in sociology, Nancy became one of the people who never left the Valley. She has been certified to teach Polestar Pilates in 2015 and is a member of PMA (Pilates Method Alliance). She has also taught yoga and Barre classes in several locations.
