Mari Scharf is a dance and pilates teacher who delivers classes full of vitality, flow, and awareness. She has been teaching dance and functional movement since 2008, working with private clients and nurturing ongoing group classes in the SF Bay Area. Over the years she has worked with people of all ages and skill levels, and she feels most alive when she is learning about the body through teaching movement for others. Pilates has long been a part of her personal practice as a dancer, and she dove deeper into the method during her pregnancy and postpartum recovery, obtained her PMA Pilates Teacher Training certificates through TONE Pilates in Santa Rosa, CA. She particularly loves working with other women, helping to locate and active the deep structural muscles that support us to be strong, graceful, and balanced.
