About Marsha Bloss, president of Pilates of Collierville.
Marsha, a certified STOTT Pilates instructor, has been teaching Pilates since 1999.  Her interest in the exercise grew from her background in professional ballroom dancing and the belief in the profound positive effects that a dedication to the Pilates exercises can have on one's body and life.

After researching the various styles of Pilates, Marsha chose to train in the STOTT style due to its input from physical therapists, physiotherapists, sports medicine doctors, and other professionals in the medical community.  She received training through a STOTT training center in Dallas and participates in continuous training in order to provide clients the most current and high quality information and instruction.
