What people say about Mary’s classes
“Mary Bond is a delightful presenter, deeply committed to the work she presents and keenly in-tune with her audience. She met each individual as such while maintaining a group focus. Her workshop easily assimilated into our Pilates practice and quickly deepened our understanding of human movement. There were immediate take-aways that spoke directly to fundamental principles in Pilates, from footwork on the Reformer to spinal articulation and breath work. We feel very fortunate to have connected with such an energetic, enthusiastic and insightful deep-thinker as Mary Bond.

“Before qualifying as a teaching professional, I played golf competitively for many years. I developed an “injury” in my hip and lower back. This was treated by many Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors and Othopaedic doctors over a number of years. As part of looking for a solution for my own physical problems and those of my pupils, I purchased Mary’s book, The New Rules of Posture. I use a great deal of the exercises from the book in my daily teaching. I attended Mary’s workshop in London in 2012. From the first exercise to identify a pelvic or thoracic centre of gravity, to the last exercise exploring peripersonal space, it was a very rich learning experience.”Many of my pupils have starting playing golf as adults. They are trying to execute an extremely complicated movement with bodies that are sometimes restricted in their ability to carry it out. Through what I have learnt from Mary I am able to help my pupils create more body awareness and freedom of movement that ultimately helps them to play better golf. And most importantly avoid injury.” Lindsey Irvine, PGA Golf Professional, British PGA AA, German PGA G1
“Mary Bond’s depth of understanding of the human body is remarkable. What is even more outstanding is her dedication to finding the unique way to further each student’s progress as a massage therapist and as a human being. She is one of those rare teachers who can engage with a diverse group and reach each person at the level of his or her own understanding.” -Maria Grove, Founding Director, Touch Therapy Institute
“Wow! This class has opened up so much for me: the overall awareness of both my clients and myself. Mary is organized, concise and presented her material in a way that I can clearly understand. Thanks very much for a great overall experience.”
“I’d like to thank the Rolf Institute for inviting Mary Bond to teach this class as I believe she embodies what “embodiment” is mostly about. I like the way Mary taught with a specific goal in mind, but taught it holistically through engaging spirit and body.”
