 Marisa Merliss

is back for another amazing class! 

Monday February 24th ,

1 pm- 2:30 pm


The MELT Method®, by Sue Hitzmann, is a simple self treatment technique that provides a revolutionary approach to pain-free living. Through a carefully coordinated series of movements and the use of specially designed balls and a soft roller, the MELT Method rehydrates the connective tissue (also known as fascia), rebalances the nervous system, and restores space to compressed joints.

Missing the reformer? Join me for an hour of Reformer on the Mat.


I remember the days of working with Romana and figuring out what we could do on the Mat because there were not enough reformers for all of us. It was a special time! The purpose of the Reformer on the Mat is to learn how to incorporate the exercises normally practiced on the Reformer and practice these exercises within the framework of a Mat class. This class will challenge your control and concentration as it demands you to work as if you have the reformer and the springs to work with you. Think about your reformer order, come ready to sweat and meet me on the mat! This is going to be fun! 

This is for clients that have at least intermediate level of Reformer Experience! 

This will be a follow along class with me, there will be no independent corrections during this class. I will be cuing you each exercise as i would with a group of clients. 

Once you register you will receive the login information for the class. 

Can't wait to see you!

What is ELDOA?
ELDOA is a revolutionary technique in the treatment of BACK PAIN, which is unfortunately a very common and debilitating disease nowadays! What ELDOAdoes is create space in between the bones, in this case the vertebrae, giving relief to the tissues and nerves in between them.

ELDOA in English LOADS (Longitudinal Osteo-Articular De-coaptation Stretches) is a restorative corrective exercise technique for the spine created in France by Guy VOYER DO (Doctor in Osteopathy). It Is a precise and still posture that provides relief from pain and restores balance.
The goal of each ELDOA exercise is to create fascial tension above and below the joint or disc that we want to “open up”. When you decompress you make space in the line of gravity. ELDOA is a kinetic contraction in extreme range, a contraction with the maximum length of the muscles.

The direct benefits are:
