Melissa began her Pilates practice in 2009 as a way to address back pain and become stronger overall, especially in her core. She fell in love with Pilates and found that it also improves flexibility, balance and brings about a wonderful sense of well-being. In 2017, while still immersed in her career as a high school French teacher, she trained at the SweatShop in St Paul to become a STOTT® Certified Pilates instructor. Although the Reformer is her favorite apparatus, Melissa loves using various props and equipment such as the Cadillac, Chair and HALO® in her training.
