“Pilates is the answer to aging."
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.

Nothing like starting a snowy Monday with Pilates and Nancy! Great class....I feel ready to hit the slopes!
I can attend 3 classes in a 24 hour period and each one will be different and great! Say, Monday evening with Tristan who has a background in yoga, Tuesday noon with Kristy and her Classical Pilates, and then end it with Katrina (one of the co-owners) who has a wide knowledge of the apparatus Pilates and regularly teaches series for beginners, among other things. And then I can still go for the 5 pm class with Nancy where one never knows what's gonna happen - she likes to take out the Oov, for instance!! OK, so that's actually 4 different Pilates classes in 24 hours in one studio...well I'm sure you get my point; 5 stars, the best.
Nancy-Thank you for always pushing your 7am team to be better each week. You change up the routines and bring new challenges weekly for us to grow and become better. You make getting up at 5:30 easy!
I recently took a reformer class with Nancy. She was fantastic at explaining exactly what to do, and providing help and encouragement. Importantly, she made us laugh during the class. I would definitely take her class again. The next day I could feel the work that I did in her class, and overall I felt looser in my hips. If you have any question about taking her class...don't! She's wonderful!
