How Margie Moran-Floirendo keeps her dancer’s body


The clients are lying on the mat with their shoulders and knees drawn up while sucking in their bellies. Resistance bands are looped around their feet. Gripping the ends of the bands, they curl their biceps. Later in the class, they stand up with the bands planted under their feet.
