A Bit About Me

Through my years of experience, I have witnessed firsthand the transformative effects of Pilates on both body and mind. It goes beyond sculpting muscles and developing core strength. Pilates encourages a deep connection between the body and the mind, promoting balance, flexibility, and an enhanced sense of self-awareness.

I am deeply passionate about sharing the true essence of Pilates with my students and guiding them on their own transformative journeys. With each class, I aim to create a supportive and empowering environment where individuals can discover their inner strength and tap into their limitless potential.

On January 5th, 2004, a significant milestone in my journey with Pilates was marked as I embarked on my first teacher training program with Stott Pilates Canada. This was the beginning of a transformative chapter in my life, where I delved deep into the world of Pilates and discovered its immense potential.

In September 2008, I obtained my Advanced classical Pilates certification with The Pilates Center based in Boulder, CO. During this intensive training, I received comprehensive instruction on all pieces of Pilates equipment, further expanding my expertise in the method. I also got certified a 200 hour yoga instructor. 

In 2013, I opened my first fully equipped Pilates Studio in Penticton, BC. Over the course of 4 years, I expanded my studio and became a host advisor, mentoring three new trainees. In 2019, we relocated to a larger space of 1500sqft, but unfortunately, the pandemic presented unexpected challenges.

In 2020, I transitioned my Pilates business online, where I continue to teach an incredible community of mat enthusiasts

In 2023, a dream came true as THE PILATES ROOM with Melanie opened its doors in the heart of Penticton. This venture has been a source of immense pride for me. With a focus on teaching Pilates Mat Work, my goal has been to provide a dedicated space where I can share my passion for Pilates and support individuals on their wellness journeys.


My online virtual village continues to thrive and for those seeking to maintain their Pilates practice on the go, I invite you to explore and join my on-demand studio.

Reflecting on my 19-year journey, I can't help but feel grateful for the unwavering passion I have for Pilates. It has been my constant source of inspiration, and I've been fortunate enough to pivot and align my path with my soul's purpose.

None of this would have been possible without the support and presence of all of you. I am humbled by the opportunity to be part of your lives, guiding you through your Pilates practice, and fostering a sense of community and wellness together.


Here's to many more years of growth, learning, and transformation together at THE PILATES ROOM!
