Comments from students about the instructor:

“I started [the]Feldenkrais [Method] with Melissa and after one session I was hooked! She is an expert teacher; patient; understands how each person interprets the practice and has a deep concern for all her clients’ well-being. My posture improved; I felt stronger and my stress level decreased significantly - a benefit I was not expecting…Anyone would be lucky to take Feldenkrais® classes with her!”

~ Roberta D’Alois, Artistic Director, Jump! Theatre

“Melissa has an amazing tranquil voice to guide her students inward through the Feldenkrais lessons. I invariably come out of her class feeling more aligned and comfortable in my body, with better posture, and feeling invigorated. I also find that I refer back to what I have learned in her classes at various points throughout my day. While at my desk at work, walking down the street, laying in bed at night. The lessons remind me to be in my body with ease and they continue well beyond the boundaries of her studio. I would highly recommend her classes.”
