Madeline began her fitness journey as a professional dancer. From a young age, she had the privilege to practice Pilates which sparked her love of the method. She has been teaching Pilates for over 10 years and continues to be inspired by her clients and students daily.
She began her Pilates training with her first mentor, Sondra Karman in Illinois. After completing her B.A. in Dance Performance from Illinois State University in 2012, she moved to New York City and began working at Equinox Pilates. She later completed her second certification in Classical Pilates through the Equinox Pilates Institute. Madeline has been Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) certified since 2014. She also holds certifications in Pre/Post Natal Fitness through Healthy Moms™️, Functional Anatomy for Movement and Injuries (FAMI) through the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and in Pelvis Restoration through the Postural Restoration Institute. Madeline is currently studying the Classical Syllabus with Pilates Guru, MeJo Wiggin as well as the Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist Course through Dr. Sarah Duvall.
Madeline recently stepped away from being a Senior Pilates Instructor for Equinox after 8 years and the Lead Teacher Trainer for Equinox Pilates Institute under the direction of Carrie Macy Samper for the past 4 years. Since the pandemic started, Madeline along with many others had to shift plans and pivot to the virtual world. She is currently teaching private and duet sessions virtually and launched MaddyPilates Workout where you can access all her group classes online. A version just for Pregnancy and Postpartum recently launched as Madeline is expecting her first child in May.
One of Madeline's greatest joys is training people of all walks of life, passing on her extensive knowledge of the body, the Pilates Method, and how it can help them live to their fullest potential. Her philosophy is that Pilates is for EVERY body and everyone can be enriched and benefit greatly from all that Pilates has to offer.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“Pilates definitely changes your body and improves your physicality, finding the right teacher to take you on that journey is essential. Sometimes you meet people who change your life for the better-Maddy is one of these people. Maddy’s deep knowledge of Pilates, the Body, Anatomy and Physiology is apparent under her tutelage. I fortunately learned from Maddy as my teacher and mentor at the EQUINOX Pilates Institute, her lessons are fun, vigorous and informative. When I look for a teacher, especially with a new skill as demanding as Pilates, knowledge and empowerment is important. Maddy encourages, corrects and promotes her students to become the best they can be. Maddy sets the bar high and lifts her students higher.”
