MLP MAT PILATES


This class is taught by:

Terri McConnell

Terri McConnell came to Pilates as a happy accident. She was brought to a Pilates class by her daughter, who needed to fulfill a high school requirement. Terri had always enjoyed fitness classes and working out independently, but found a true community of fitness at Main Line Pilates. She started taking classes
in 2010 and fell in love with both the process - the method - and the results - strength and flexibility.

Terri received her certification from the highly regarded Body Precision Pilates Teaching Certification Program in Rosemont, PA and is eager to share her love for Pilates with you!

Abby Frith

Abby has been teaching Pilates for 17 years. She was a Dance minor at West Chester University in 1997, and began doing Pilates after a terrible car accident nearly halted her dancing forever. Within 2 months, Abby was back on stage and choreographing for her annual Dance Production Workshop. This inspired her to want to become a teacher to share with others the amazing benefits Pilates brought to her life and her body.

Abby participated in the very first Body Precision Teacher Training Program, graduating in 2001 and completing over 700 hours. That same year, she received her Master’s degree in Dance Movement Therapy at Drexel University. Abby worked at Body Precision until she moved to Delaware and opened her own business, Bodies in Balance Pilates Studio, which became a successful studio that was even voted “Best of Delaware”.

Abby moved back to Pennsylvania in 2006, in order to work towards her second Master’s degree in Education, which she completed in 2012 at Holy Family University. 

Abby’s passion for helping others and her education, have made her able to use Pilates, something that saved her own body, to help others become strong, balanced, pain free, and pursue what Joseph Pilates called the “prerequisite to happiness”: physical fitness.

Gina Nostrant

Gina Nostrant, the owner of Main Line Pilates since 2005, is a lifelong athlete and wellness enthusiast. She has been taking Pilates since 2000 and has been teaching since 2002. She received her certification from the highly regarded Body Precision Pilates Studio Teaching Certification Program in Rosemont, PA. In an effort to continue her learning and training, Gina takes weekly Pilates classes and private lessons. As she continues to grow healthier and stronger, so do her clients.

Along with her love for Pilates, she is passionate about mindfulness and wellness. Sharing this love is truly a part of her life plan. Helping people make positive and lasting changes in their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being is what her work is all about.

Whether its losing weight, raising children or experiencing a family cancer diagnosis, Gina knows first hand the importance of natural solutions to health challenges. She began studying and using essential oils in 2015. Though she was skeptical at first, she quickly became a believer as she saw the incredible impact the use of oils had (and still have) on her life, her family’s lives and the lives of her many devoted clients. As an Aroma Touch Technique Practitioner she provides a "massage like" experience using essential oils. Some of the wonderful benefits of this practice include reduced stress, a supported immune system, reduced inflammation thus bringing balance and homeostasis to your cells.

Growing up in a very positive household, Gina learned early on that words and thoughts have power and create a vibration. We become our most dominate thoughts. As an 'Achieve Today' Certified Law of Attraction Coach, Gina shows her client how to manifest what they want in their life by helping them identify and clear limiting beliefs.

Considered the most challenging of the work, Pilates mat classes are:

a series of exercises performed on a mat, which strengthen the core muscles of the body, giving you strength and flexibility at the same time.

The Mat exercises are layered in as the body strengthen, changes and progresses in the Pilates work. When thinking of the "CORE" you want to think.....CORE of an apple.... The exercises will tone from shoulders and upper body down though your stomach, hips, buttocks and legs. These exercises will improve your posture and give you long lean muscles. Your posture and flexibility will improve as your sense of control and awareness over your body improves.

Some classes may use Pilates accessories and props, such as hand and ankle weights, bars and Magic Circles. Pilates Mats and accessories are provided.
