Melanie is co-owner, with Alisa Wyatt, of Pilatesology Studio in Hermosa Beach.  whose mission is to preserve and teach the original Pilates Method and support our community. Melanie has the opportunity to be inspired and continue her education with the top teachers in the world who visit the studio often to film with

Joe Pilates said, “Change happens through movement, and movement heals.” and that is the philosophy that drives Melanie’s teaching. She’s an inspiring teacher who encourages her students to actualize their healthiest and strongest self.

Mel is a natural and gifted teacher; she has an intuitive understanding of exactly when and how much to push me to test my limits, and she is endlessly creative. As a result, she’s healed my shoulder (an issue that confounded a series of physical therapists), calmed my mind, strengthened me both physically and psychologically, and given me a body awareness and intelligence that carries over into my other workouts and my daily life.

I’ve been working with Melanie for about 15 years. I began after exhausting numerous other attempts to address chronic low grade back and neck pain. Since then I have regained at least an inch in height, improved my posture dramatically, eliminated the pain and as a wonderful bonus, developed a flat tummy. Melanie is very perceptive and never stops pushing me to improve my practice, which in turn makes me stronger and more flexible. She is a joy to work with!

Melanie has great energy and is such a positive force for health and fitness .. Honestly her workouts have relieved me of the back pain I had carried around for over 20 years!
