Marilyn Ann Gusmano
Marilyn Ann Gusmano has a 30 year background in dance, gymnastics and fitness. Her passion in dance had led her to attend O.D.U. of Virginia and C.S.L.B. of California, while she pursued a career in teaching. After she earned her degree in Elementary Education in 1996, it afforded her the opportunity to substitute in both New York and Florida School Districts. During this time she also coached 3 kickline/dance teams. Her teaching and choreography skills had enabled the Wellington High School Dance Team to achieve the 2nd place award at the National Dance Association competition.
In addition, Marilyn holds several certifications: A.F.A.A. Group Fitness Instructor, A.F.A.A. Advanced Personal Trainer, Aquatics and Ballecore. In 2000, after her unfortunate neck and back injury from a car accident, she became a strong advocate of the Joseph H. Pilates “contrology” system. Because of her own rehabilitive challenges and belief in the Pilates discipline, it motivated her to receive 3 national/international Pilates Certifications: Physical Mind Institute (mat); IM=X (mat and reformer); and Polestar Allegro.
Her fascination in the origins of the Pilates repertoire, along with her desire to help others, has allowed Marilyn to further advance herself by most recently achieving POLESTAR’S Studio/Rehab Certifications. She is currently a principal teacher of the Pilates method at the Satya Studio.
