Marielle Rubin

Originally from Boston, Mari is a recent Philly transplant. While she was originally fully trained on the mat through Balanced Body, she did an additional mat training and her full apparatus training through Drexel University.  Mari fell in love with Pilates a number of years ago, as the practice taught her to approach her physical and mental health in an intuitive way, and she loved how emotionally empowered and physically strong she felt after each class. She loves how precise and purposeful the practice is, and she wants her students to gain strength, stability and really challenge themselves throughout her classes. While constantly looking to help her clients challenge both their bodies and minds, Mari believes that hard work, discipline and confidence will help them accomplish their goals.
