“Mel saved my life!! Sounds dramatic but it is true. Two + years ago I had been suffering with back pain due to a herniated disc problem. After many doctor appointments, shots and physical therapy treatments, I fell into a depression because nothing was helping me. I had met Mel at a friends party and remembered enjoying our conversation, instantly making a connection. Calling her was the best decision I have ever made. Mel curated a Pilates program specifically made for me and in a short matter of time I was feeling better. She teaches authentic Pilates where combined oppositional stretching and core training strengthens my back. I continue to see Mel and have made a great friend along my journey to good health. Thank you Mel!”

“I began my journey with Pilates in 2008, the only prior knowledge I had was a DVD where I tried mat Pilates. Needless to say, I knew absolutely nothing by the time I walked into a studio. During the years, I worked with several instructors and used the Reformer, Cadillac, Barrel and Chair. In 2015, I relocated and was fortunate to be introduced to Mel by way of my former instructor. I was under the impression I knew a few things, but realized after my first session with Mel I had so much further to go in my practice. Mel has a hands-on approach where she breaks every move down in an easy to understand manner. I started to learn there was a progression to each exercise, and as the weeks went by I started to grow in my practice. My appreciation and knowledge for Pilates has developed over my time working with Mel. I’m grateful to have met her, have the pleasure of her training, and the utmost respect for her instruction. She’s highly skilled, and my body has never looked better!”

“I have been seeing Mel for a little more than a year. She came highly recommended. I have been practicing pilates for more than two decades. Over the years, I have had many physical setbacks not related to pilates. Mel brought me back to the basics which I needed since I had been out with an injury for over a year. She is very good at adapting exercises to fit my abilities. Mel has a very kind and inclusive way of dealing with her clients. I am highly recommending Mel.”
