Miriam Ruth

Miriam Ruth Lundgren is a mother, dancer, artist and body healer through functional movement and Pilates. At a crucial point during her time at Texas Christian University, while obtaining a BFA in modern dance, Miriam discovered Pilates and the extraordinary benefits that functional movement could have on the mind and body. In 2005 she was able to integrate her dance background with Pilates by completing The Articulate Eye Pilates training program in Washington, DC.  Miriam was subsequently certified through the Pilates Method Alliance. She was a dancer with ClancyWorks Dance Company from 2002-2007. Then in 2009 to 2016 Miriam danced with SPUNKandCOmpany Contemporary Dance in Boston.

During 2016-17, Miriam had the privilege of volunteering with her family in rural Nicaragua. Teaching Pilates and moving with people in a multicultural context truly allowed Miriam to bridge cultural gaps that would have otherwise remained unaffected.

She has continually augmented her knowledge through workshops and study with people such as Erik Franklin, Michelle Larson, Wendy LeBlanc Arbuckle, and Irene Dowd. She also is certified to teach Red Cord suspension training and has studied myofascial “Anatomy Trains” with Tom Myers. Her latest pursuit is a certification in Applied Movement Neurology. Most recently she completed a 50 hour “Embodied Social Justice” certificate course Led by Dr Rev Angel Kyodo Williams. Miriam taught Pilates at “EveryBody Fitness” from 2007-2016. After her time in Nicaragua, she started her own business “Pilates Redefined” in 2018 in Dedham, MA, and the business is still thriving. She hopes to weave social justice and movement healing together as her journey continues.
