Maranda loves to move and to challenge her mind and body. Born and raised in Muncie, Indiana, she was heavily involved in dance and gymnastics from age eight until she graduated high school. In 2009, Maranda decided to continue her passion for dance at Ball State University, where she received a B.S. in Dance Performance with a Sports Medicine minor. Being active growing up, she was intrigued with how the body moved and worked. Having several injuries from dance and gymnastics, Maranda enjoyed learning how to heal her body. In 2010, while studying at Ball State, she was introduced to Pilates. In just one semester, she noticed a difference in her strength and awareness and an improvement in her dancing. 2015, while living in Chicago, Maranda finally decided to take her love for Pilates a step further and signed up for the BASI Pilates Comprehensive Program. Maranda has been teaching Pilates since 2015 and dance since 2010. Maranda, her husband, and their two fur babies moved to Nashville from Chicago in January 2019, and they are enjoying the nice weather and change of scenery.
