“Pilates with Jodi Melton has changed my approach to daily activities. The determination and confidence conveyed by Jodi is contagious. My body and mind are extremely thankful!”

“I have been practicing pilates for 20 years & really enjoyed all the benefits of what pilates offers…. June 2018 Jodi was recommended to me & after my first session I knew she was going to teach me a whole new level of pilates strength, flexibility & focus. She was able to see a strength I had no idea I possessed, & through her very patient instruction & creative approach to each movement series we have had the best time!

Jodi challenges me to progress, grow & be fearless all while keeping a strict adherence to pilates principles.

A beginner could not ask for a better coach to teach the basics needed to build a solid pilates practice. An intermediate level practice would benefit from Jodi’s encouragement to try new series of exercises on all the pilates equipment. If you are advanced in your pilates practice, Jodi can instruct you through exercises you never thought possible! It has been so fun to learn & love the flips & “tricks” Jodi & I try together.

I have complete trust in her ability to know what I am capable of, & what I need to work on to master a new skill. With that trust comes a respect necessary for any exercise practice to grow, & change.

The laughter, fun, & creative energy at every session is a huge bonus on top of an already amazing experience.”

“Shortly after I joined the Village in 2006, I discovered a wonderful class called “Have a Ball” taught by Jodi Melton which has been part of my exercise schedule ever since.  About seven years ago, I started training with Jodi on a weekly basis.  Jodi is an extremely knowledgeable professional that I credit for the level of physical fitness and well being that I enjoy today.  This investment paid off!  Every session is different, but I can always count on a good workout intermingled with good humor and an occasional song.  Thanks, Jodi!!”

“Jodi has been an incredible instructor, mentor and encourager the past 2 years during our weekly Pilates reformer sessions. I was braced for 4 years during adolescence for severe scoliosis (which didn’t correct it, just kept it from getting worse) so I had many imbalances. I was recently told by my massage therapist that my spine has literally begun to straighten this last year!! Jodi has also helped me work around injuries and greatly improve my core strength and reduced my hip pain. As an endurance runner- Pilates has become a crucial component to my training.”

 

Roseann Zaft

“I’ve struggled with an imbalance in my SI joint for a very long time which eventually started causing severe pain in my tailbone and lower back. I’ve been working with Jodi for over 8 months specifically thus problem. The imbalance is improving weekly and I’m pain-free. At 61 years old my core is stronger than ever!

Plus working with Jodi is so much fun!”

We can’t wait to see you show your Pilates Love!
