Before seeing Meghan I had nagging pain in my neck and shoulders. After a few weeks the pain subsided and I was hooked. Now I can’t imagine my live without Meghan! She is by far the most knowledgeable movement specialist I have ever worked with. I’ve sent a lot of friends and family (including my husband) to her and they can’t say enough kind things about her and her craft.” Linnea Stalberg, Seathos Foundation, Executive Director

Owner/Director – Meghan Pickrell, M.S.

A dancer since the age of 7, I have worked as a Movement Specialist since 2001. After studying with the Utah Ballet, I earned my B.A. in dance from the University of Colorado-Boulder. My education continued with Carole Amend and others at Bodies Mind® in the San Francisco Bay Area. It was there I learned the full pilates repertoire, Wetzig Coordination Patterns™, movement phenomenology, and more, thereby earning the title of Movement Specialist. Over the past decade I’ve worked both in NYC and Los Angeles and recently returned to academia, earning my Master’s of Science in Kinesiology.

I love giving a thorough intense workout, but my specialties include working with low back pain, disc herniation, scoliosis, sacrum instability, and chronic conditions.  I use a myriad of techniques including a full pilates repertoire, coordination patterns, yoga, and functional movement in order to assist my clients with proper alignment, joint function, strength and flexibility.  I have completed Level 1 of the Trager® certification and am in the process of getting certified as a Trager® practitioner.

TESTIMONIALS

Meghan’s approach to pilates theory and instruction is almost solely responsible for rehabilitating me when I suffered from a lower back injury two years ago. Thanks to her, I’m back to my usual work out habits feeling more confident and educated on how to prevent future injury.” – Lake Bell, Actress

 Doing pilates under Meghan’s instruction is always fresh and challenges both mind and body. Sessions not only focus on the physical challenges and benefits of pilates, but the mental aspects as well — focus on breath and muscles is as important as improving strength and flexibility. This approach brings mind and body into a rhythmic harmony. It’s both deeply relaxing and physically challenging at the same time. And I can’t get enough of it!” – John Stalberg, Writer and Director
