Meet Lynelle (She/Her)
My personal and professional journey began in the Toledo, Ohio home of a doctor and a nurse who inspired my interest in the "caring" part of healthcare. After graduating from the University of Dayton with a Theatre degree and faced with the glaring need for a real job, I returned to my roots. Medicine was my first love and I found my niche in the field of massage therapy. Since earning my Ohio State Medical Board License in 2002 it has been my privilege to work with clients from Toledo to Cincinnati to Virginia to Germany.
I moved to Germany, newly married and recovering from knee surgery after a sports injury. Although I was fortunate enough to spend the majority of my free time overseas traveling and walking (and walking, and walking), two years after my ACL repair my knee still hurt constantly.
I had discovered Pilates while living in Cincinnati and was thrilled to connect with Kelly, a Pilates instructor who was also stationed in Germany. Kelly listened to my concerns and goals and she worked with me on the Reformer to incrementally strengthen the weaknesses in my knee and hamstrings. My balance was almost non-existent but improved quickly as Kelly challenged my stability and core strength. Within four months, my knee stopped hurting and healed completely.
I've lived in Hamilton since 2010 and in 2020 I made the leap from Pilates student to instructor. Earning my Pilates Teaching Certificate has deepened my understanding and appreciation of the potential for Pilates to heal the body from the inside out.
My personal, political, and spiritual beliefs form the basis of my life; from the studio's name to my commitment to treat all my Guests according to the sacred traditions of hospitality.
I center the divine feminine and I love finding magic in the mundane!
I wish for you peace in each day and joy in your body.
I can't wait to meet you and join your wellness journey.
