Melissa has always sought out activities involving creativity and movement. She spent years as a child and young adult learning ballet, jazz, art, choir, and theater. After getting married and having two children, she began searching for new creative outlets, and discovered Twisted Bodies. She was initially drawn to the aerial silks and lyra classes, but soon realized she would need additional training to make significant progress. After adding yoga and Pilates classes to her schedule, she began to see dramatic improvement in her aerial work, and her everyday life. Her passion to learn and grow as a student eventually evolved into a desire to share her knowledge, so she completed both her 200 hour Yoga and Pilates Mat Teacher Training courses here at Twisted Bodies.
Outside the studio, Melissa is a licensed Cosmetologist and has been working as a hair stylist for over 16 years. She enjoys being able to contribute to her clients’ confidence and sense-of-self through their style. As a yoga and Pilates instructor, she seeks to help every student discover that same confidence in their strength and ever-increasing abilities.
