Meet your instructor

Hi, I’m Michele.

I combine the best of contemporary training strategies to help achieve lasting improvements in your fitness, body awareness and sports performance.

Clients training with me in-studio or virtually from home receive a personalized, progressive workout program anchored in Pilates, Nutritious Movement and MELT®. Group class offerings include CorMotus, a unique approach to core-based whole-body strength and flexibility training incorporating tension release and alignment correction with weight-bearing and non-impact exercises that translate into better movement skills and overall health.

Any training format you choose will restore your posture, help you develop better movement skills, a more resilient body and enjoy a higher quality of life.

I am enthusiastic about what I do and take my job—and your health—very seriously.
