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!!!!
Love, love, love! Thank you for sharing your story (and kudos to your doctor for recognizing that for neuro conditions, Pilates is the best form of exercise). All the best to you.

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.
