Núcleo Pilates & Rowing is an innovative, boutique studio that focuses on core development and strength, by combining the powerful effects of Pilates with the cardio conditioning of Indoor Rowing.  Directly translating to 'core' in Spanish, Núcleo provides a unique and unparalleled class experience and individualized client attention.  Offering a total body workout that is also low impact, clients achieve tremendous benefits and receive personalized support from the studio's expert instructors in building strength, power, and in greatly improving functional movement without the risk of injury.   Suitable for all ages and capability levels, both pilates and rowing deliver amazing results that are life changing.   During times of lockdown as well as in highly restrictive periods, classes are offered virtually, and also in person when the studio is permitted to be open.

Certified in Mat Pilates Level 1 & 2 by Power Pilates, and also having been certified as an Indoor Rowing Coach by WaterRower, Marlene loves to share her passion for proper functional movement and ageing well here in Leaside.   She is a fervent believer in the benefits of Pilates and how it can improve posture, alignment, functional movement, strength, power, and athletic performance.  Having seen what poor mobility can do to a person's body and brain, she opened Núcleo four years ago with the goal of spreading her passion for proper movement and cardiovascular health.  

Pictured here at the age of 52,  she is a walking testament to the benefits of routine exercise and maintaining a Pilates practice.

January 16, 2020 is a special day in more ways than one. Besides, it being a day that we can virtually join together in the spirit of giving and wellness, we are also so lucky to celebrate Marlene's Birthday with her!  Marlene is so happy to celebrate her special day doing exactly what she loves and having the chance to connect with you all during the event.

Be sure to join us at the event to wish Marlene a wonderful and deserving birthday!
