I have to be honest, I really didn't know anything about Mari Windsor nor delved past the thought of her as the 'informercial Queen'. My eyes have been opened (delightfully). I did her reformer class 2 days ago and midway through I was smiling and said out loud 'I really like this woman' -- her presence, her mischief/humour and her teaching points. Thanks to the PA gang for offering us a deeper look at Mari and of course Mari for sharing. You don't have to worry, you are definitely still inspiring ;) plus you get 'mad props' cause you're the drunk girl from Smooth Criminal!!!!!! Best music video of all time!!!!
Mari was my very first introduction to Pilates. I bought her DVD after I had my first baby. I was never so sore in my life! I was immediately hooked. And now, 13 years later, here I am teaching the method she made me fall in love with. Thank you, Mari, for all you have done, and continue to do for our beloved community. You are a remarkable person. A true gift. I am honored and thrilled to carry on the Pilates tradition and hope to inspire others as you have inspired me. Thank you for sharing your story and your insights. I will keep you in my prayers. XO
Mari: you are the light of Romana and the light of a great woman with so much caring and depth. A true visionary. I know you will succeed in your biggest challenge yet. The pilates community is so lucky to have you as a key figure to look towards.
I, too, bought the videos (have the mat!), copied the "choreography", and taught classes at my workplace 13 years ago. Now I am well on my way to being comprehensively trained and certified, actively teaching The Method every day, and I have Ms Winsor to thank. Thank you for sharing your story. Awesome inspiration.
