Mind Over Mat - Mixed Level


This class is taught by:

Marcy Schafler

Marcy Schafler, is the owner of Mind Over Movement, a Pilates Studio in Madison, NJ Her career as a Pilates instructor began at the ripe young age of 45. Pilates training began at Movements Afoot in New York City. There she trained with Doris Pasteleur Hall (Carola Trier trained) and Lesley Powell and was certified through PhysicalMind. In 2008, Marcy became faculty for Balanced Body teaching students to become Pilates Instructors. Shortly after that Marcy decided to do Balanced Body’s program Passing the Torch with Elizabeth Larkam. Balanced Body requested her to do become Faculty for Anatomy in Three Dimensions. A hands on approach to anatomy. In 2008, Marcy became a PMA Certified Pilates Instructor. Recently Marcy has added to her workshop teachings as she is a CoreAlign Master Instructor as well as a teacher for MOTR and the Franklin Method. Marcy has recently had the opportunity to present at Pilates on Tour in London and NYC. In 2006, Marcy participated as an instructor in a study led by Urogynecologist, Dr. Patrick Culligan, of the Atlantic Healthcare System on the rehabilitation and support of the pelvic floor. Marcy is a cancer surthriver (her own coinage). Surviving both uterine and breast cancer. Pilates has had a huge an impact on her ability to come through the challenges of surgery, radiation and rehab. Continuing education is such an important part of our growth and often gets overlooked when we are teaching for awhile. I love working with and taking other instructors workshops. There is always something new to learn. Whatever Marcy teaches, she is always looking to enhance movements of her clients and students so they can improve the quality of their lives. This can be by getting in better shape, getting stronger, improve sports performance (Marcy has worked with NFL Jets) or to living pain free.
Illuminate the Mind; Empower the Body
 
In this class, we begin by observing where we start.  This gives us an opportunity to improve our alignment and form in movement to get the most out of each exercise. With this awareness, you will learn how to get deep core conditioning for strength, flexibility and tone. Focusing on joint mobility to increase body awareness and release tension, your practice will be more balanced and with more flow.
 
The objective is a coordination of mind, body, and spirit--something Joseph Pilates called "contrology."

A wide range of props are used in this class to enhance and deepen your movement experience.

Inspiring and invigorating!
