Melissa’s expertise, experiences, and enthusiasm will help you transform your body. As a professional dancer – experiencing pain, limitations, and misalignment – Melissa used Pilates as a way to reform her body for her career.
When doctors told her that she would need knee surgery, Melissa knew that her body was capable of gaining the necessary strength and mobility that would allow her to dance without it. She brings that same determination to her work with clients and enjoys seeing the mental and physical changes that can happen with a consistent Pilates practice.
Along with her 3 summers training in New York with the Jose Limon Dance Co. and her distinguished career as a dancer in Michigan, Melissa brings with her more than 20 years of experience as a movement educator and nutrition coach. She holds multiple certifications and has studied under notable experts in the fields of Pilates, Physical Therapy and the Gyrotonic Method.
