Meghann Koppele Duffy is an international Pilates educator, specializing in working with people with neurological conditions and a co-founder of The Neuro Studio. Meghann is a Kane School, Pilates Method Alliance (PMA®), and IM=X certified instructor since 2001 as well as a Certified Strength and Condition Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Meghann received an undergraduate degree in exercise science from the University of Scranton and a master’s degree in Applied Physiology from Columbia University. After completing her master’s degree, Meghann opened a Pilates studio in Hoboken, New Jersey and sold it 5 years later to focus on developing her work for people living with Multiple Sclerosis. After working closely with neurologists, compiling medical and anecdotal evidence, and consulting with her mentors Kelly Kane and Matt McCulloch, Meghann created her own Pilates-based workshop for other teachers, personal trainers, physical therapists, and other rehab specialists.
In 2014, Meghann combined forces with Mariska Breland in their quest to educate other movement professionals about Pilates for Neurological Conditions and to change the way people work with their clients with neurological conditions. Meghann has taught her methods across the USA, Japan, Australia, UAE, and virtually to practitioners worldwide. She pioneered an innovative 4-Quadrant method that is currently being researched by University of Colorado focusing on its effect on improving gait patterns and symptom management in MS. These methods are taught in her Advanced Neuro Technique Workshop and mentorship program in addition to her popular Anatomy in Action Workshop. Meghann also works with top hospitals and MS Centers to incorporate her methods into the standard treatment plans with physical therapists.
In 2017, Meghann & Mariska created the first online movement education tool for people with Neurological Conditions called The Neuro Studio. They were both sick of Pilates being so cost prohibitive and decided to create The Neuro Studio to help bring their successful methods to everyone at a fraction of the cost. Their goal is to change the perspective on movement and make it accessible for EVERYONE.
You can find Meghann at her studio in New Jersey or NYC at Kinected where she trains clients, hosts workshops, and mentorship meetings. When Meghann is not working, she is spending time with her husband and their dogs, Charlie Bear and The Willie Monster. Find more information about The Neuro Studio and Meghann’s courses.
