Mary Bowen

Mary Bowen, PMA®-CPT, is the eldest Pilates Elder still teaching. She is an outstanding mentor, as she supports each Pilates teacher’s creativity and self-development in any stage of their Pilates career. Mary has practiced Pilates for over 50 years. At 29 for six and a half years she studied with Joe and Clara themselves. Lessons for her did not end after Joe’s passing. Consecutively for 7 years each she studied with Bob Seed, Romana Kryzanowska, Kathy Grant, Bruce King, Jean Claude West and Christine Wright. Mary’s Pilates evolved with each teacher, from an early career in theatre and from 45 years since 1970 as a Jungian psychoanalyst. For 20 years the analyst and the Pilates teacher were parallel, until 1995, when without intention, they combined forces in teaching Pilates. By 2000 this combination had become Mary’s unique signature offering at the PMA – Pilates Plus Psyche. Mary mentors in New York City, Killingworth, CT and Northampton, MA for two full days, 14 hours of 1-1 work on Pilates plus Psyche, working with clients on wherever they are in their lives. She accepts students at all levels, offers workshops throughout the U.S., and presents at conferences in the US and abroad. Mary is a founding member of PMA, presenting each year at the Annual Meeting. Mary’s current excitement is in finally joining the new age of social media by setting up “Mentoring with Mary Teleconferences” addressing your subjects and questions. She hopes to meet many more of you in these ways.
