In 2021 Belle Maclver was involved in an automobile accident which resulted in two spinal surgeries. While undergoing rehabilitation, her surgeon recommended that she include Pilates in addition to standard physical therapy protocols.

Her physical therapist suggested the Stuart YMCA as we have extensive exercise programs including Pilates.

After speaking with Pilates instructor, Jan Field-Bryne, they decided that individual classes would be the best approach as she was in the early stages of rehabilitation.

After a few months Jan and Belle felt that she had made remarkable improvement and is now transitioning into group classes. She feels that Pilates has played a major role in her recovery and her ability to resume life as she once knew it.
