Maureen Fleagle has been a practicing physical therapist for over 30 years specializing in women's health and lymphedema at Springfield Hospital. She continues to incorporate a holistic approach to treatment and is presently exploring mindfulness meditation as a healing modality. She has a certification in pastoral counseling from Neumann University which supports her delivery of care. In 2005, Maureen attained a pilates certification and has since enjoyed teaching adult mat classes both at WSSC adult school and Media Presbyterian Church.

On a personal note, I have been a student of Maureen's for a few years now and I can attest to the truth in this list. She is a great teacher.  I have become much more flexible emotionally and physically by taking this class.  Pilates also heightens the feeling of being comfortable in your own skin.
