Our June 2022 Member of the Month looks for the good and the positive in people, and in life. She is dedicated to her Pilates practice and takes classes four times a week! We want to offer a big Ho’omaika’i ‘ana (congratulations) and celebrate Marilyn Sherwood! Marilyn came to us after a friend recommended our studio with heaps of enthusiastic praises. Since coming to the studio one year ago, Marilyn's Pilates journey with us has made quite a difference in her body and her mental health. “First of all, I noticed how my clothes fit me better. Then, I started noticing how my muscles were getting stronger and how my balance was improving. Pilates has not only helped me physically, but also mentally through the closeness and warmth in the Maui Pilates Studio community of like-minded positive people!” “I found exercises that I really enjoy in Pilates, and in the near future I hope to attend Pilates classes five to six days a week because it makes me feel so good.” Marilyn doesn’t stop there to support her health and well-being. “I try to eat well balanced meals, relax by going to the beach, read a lot, get lots of fresh air, and laugh as much as possible. I want to stay as healthy as I can so I can enjoy life as much as possible.” Marilyn loves her family and finds inspiration in her two daughters. “My daughters have such wonderful qualities and accept and work through all the challenges life presents, not forgetting the positive aspects of happy optimism.” We asked Marilyn if she can share with our readers something few people know about her. “I love my teaching profession. Not many people know that I have never been out of school since I was enrolled in kindergarten.”
E Marilyn, Ho’omaika’i ‘ana! We are so proud of you!
