Maria Cronk

I live in Kingston with my husband of 28 years and we have three beautiful grownup daughters. Together with my mother and brother we own three boutiques, Fancy That, Roundstone and Limestone and Ivy. I run the downtown stores and have been there for the last 25 years. I started teaching fitness 25 years ago and definitely have a love for the wider spectrum of fitness. I teach step, spinning, body sculpt, and Pilates. I love educating people about the importance of being fit as we get older. I also enjoy fitness with my family and we have done many running races and triathlons together and it is wonderful to spend time with them as we work out. I love the triathlon community in Kingston and the confidence it brings to many individuals. I love teaching Pilates since it is the basic foundation to building a strong and healthy core. I think having a strong core makes a happy and healthy body.

Meghan Reid

Meghan Reid graduated from massage therapy school in 1995 and has been practicing in Kingston as a registered massage therapist for the last 15 years. Throughout the years she has continued her education in the health field by taking various courses related to massage. In 2007 she discovered Pilates. Due to chronic low back pain, diagnosed as osteoarthritis, range of motion was limited and she decided to take a proactive approach to her health. The Pilates exercises helped to correct muscular imbalances and improve posture, coordination, core strength and flexibility and left her feeling invigorated after a session. This inspired her to become a mat instructor. In 2009 Meghan took the Pilates mat courses and certified through Balanced Body University. Her goal is to help people achieve a better quality of life through the benefits of Pilates. Meghan is excited to see where the world of Pilates will lead her.

Pascale Dunn

Pascale has been involved in the fitness industry as an instructor for the past 14 years. What started as a way to stay fit quickly became a passion. She became an instructor and personal trainer while living in Edmonton AB and after moving to Fredericton NB, she had the fortune to meet and work with an amazing lady who made her discover all the benefits of Pilates. She was hooked! In 2001, she took her Pilates Instructor Training by Physical Mind Institute and never looked back. She believes in the "Stability before mobility and quality before quantity"approach and applies it to all her classes: Pilates, weight training, cardio and yoga. When she is not teaching, Pascale works at RMCC as a Health and Safety coordinator.

Georgia Katsabanis

Pilates found me at a young age and literally transformed my life. Having surgery to correct scoliosis at the age of 15 left me adapting to what felt like a new body as I regularly experienced back pain, muscle stiffness, and loss of flexibility. It was not until I felt the gradual changes in my body from a consistent Pilates practice when I knew there was something different about the Pilates approach. I experienced less back pain on a daily basis and my overall physique changed as I began to develop a stronger core. Presently, 13 years post-surgery, I can confidently say that Pilates has given my body a form of healing I never imagined. Inspired by the endless scope of potential that Pilates has for rehabilitation, I completed my mat teacher certification through Body Harmonics in Vancouver, BC with founder Margot McKinnon as my teacher. I have since taken a variety of Pilates courses through Body Harmonics and STOTT, and completed the STOTT intensive reformer training. I am currently working on achieveing my Pilates Comprehensive Teacher Diploma through Body Harmonics. The transformation Pilates has made in my life is my source of motivation to help people achieve stronger more balanced bodies in which they can move with ease and live healthier lives. I am committed to each client's unique fitness journey and I make it a priority for you to feel those core muscles you thought you didn't have, with a smile on my face! When this old soul is not immersed in the wonderful world of Pilates, I enjoy sharing laughs with my partner Troy, hiking, traveling, and being in the presence of family, friends, and Oddis.
