About Melissa Wright
As a senior Pilates specialist, Melissa has been a dedicated student of Pilates for almost three decades and began her teaching career in 1999. For over eight years, Melissa owned MG Pilates, a large successful Pilates studio in Erskineville, Sydney before relocating to the Central Coast in 2013 to pursue a more relaxed lifestyle for herself and her family.
Melissa has two certifications in Pilates from the Australian Pilates Method Association and a full diploma of Pilates Instruction from Polestar Pilates Australia, a worldwide provider of teacher training. After completing her qualifications, she was asked to become a mentor for Polestar Pilates students and was then further promoted to assistant educator.
Over the years, Melissa has become a leading Pilates mentor within the industry, sharing her teaching skills with hundreds of students both in Australia and overseas.
She has also become renowned for her rehabilitation expertise, applying her advanced Pilates knowledge with dancers, athletes and runners as well as people with injuries, disabilities and debilitating medical conditions. She also specialises in working with pre and post-natal and menopausal women.
In 2013, Melissa hosted her first Pilates retreat at luxury boutique resort Bells at Killcare and has since gone on to host a number of other retreats including one in Bali in 2017.
In 2016, Melissa was selected to become a Master Trainer for Runity as a running coach and uses these advanced skills to further complement her Pilates teaching practices.
Melissa continues her Pilates education and self-mastery daily and is passionate about living a healthy, balanced lifestyle. She loves how Pilates can be adapted to suit every body and, when combined with meditation, can influence positive changes both physically and psychologically.
