Elite Pilates Instructor + M.A.T. Specialist
Melissa was a track and wrestling student athlete before receiving her BFA in Dance. She discovered Pilates after a dislocated knee took her off the dance floor, and she quickly fell in love with the practice, got certified and opened her own Pilates Studio in Seattle, WA. She has since taken years of wide-ranging continuing education courses and Pilates trainings. Melissa loves to teach Pilates because it helps people feel good and move better – both in their other workouts and daily lives. She is always thinking outside the box and expanding her repertoire to enhance her clients’ experience.
As part of her repertoire expansion, Melissa became a certified M.A.T. (Muscle Activation Technique) specialist in 2017. Her combination of MAT work and Pilates instruction helps clients correct muscular imbalances, joint instability, and limitations within their bodies.
