What People Are Saying

about The Nourished Body Online

“I love your attention to detail. You have such a good eye for catching the small things that make a big difference. I really appreciate how you challenge me and make me work hard and while showering me with compassion and kindness. You also have a gift for explaining things in an easy to understand manner. Thank you so much Melanie!”

Trina Altman, PMA®-CPT, E-RYT 500 Creator, Pilates Deconstructed® and Yoga Deconstructed® STOTT Pilates® Certified, Los Angeles, CA

"Melanie McGray is an incredible Pilates instructor and I would highly recommend taking sessions with her via the Nourished Body online platform. She has an extensive teaching background in dance, anatomy, and movement that gives her an expert eye for alignment and pacing. She has the unique ability to guide deep muscular connections into the body, bringing awareness and endurance to your movements, (aka kicking your butt!), all with a positive and encouraging vibe. Melanie’s cueing is rich in detail and metaphor. Her smooth flowing Pilates sessions will leave you feeling connected, strong, free of tension, and renewed with energy!"

Lavinia Findikgolu, Certified Gyrotonic® and Gyrokinesis® Educator and Professional Dancer, Los Angeles, CA

“I am thrilled that Melanie McGray is now teaching online Pilates! Melanie gives clear and meaningful instructions in a friendly and caring manner. I know this from having worked with Melanie for several years. I also know her as a kind and compassionate human being who will lead you through the exercises in a style that builds your skill and nourishes your spirit. If you can, I urge you to try Melanie’s classes! Your body, mind, and spirit will be safe with Melanie’s expert guidance.”

Mavis Rode, PT, DPT, Certified Sports and Conditioning Specialist, Certified Nutrition Specialist, dancer wellness and rehabilitation specialist, Los Angeles, CA - www.mrodept.com

“Over the years, I’ve watched Melanie make the transition from exquisite dancer to eminent body-work professional. Her success is the result of a synthesis of her profound understanding of movement, strength, alignment and agility. Personally, Melanie was able to help me reorganize my inherent bodily “knowing” into a system of methodical practice that immensely contributes to my overall health and wellness. My transforming body attests to her expanding wisdom and care.”

Todd Courage (MFA Dance: Creative Practice): dancer, choreographer, teacher, and dance scholar, San Francisco, CA

“Melanie knows her stuff! I’ve watched her transform people who never thought they’d get better from their condition. She’s a Pilates genius.”

Gregory Patterson, Associate Professor of Dance, Dance Program Director; Oakland University, Artistic Director; Patterson Rhythm Pace, Detroit, MI

“I highly recommend Melanie as an exceptional and qualified trainer! She has a broad understanding of anatomy and movement, an excellent eye for correct alignment, and an extensive knowledge of strength and flexibility training. The online format was much simpler than I expected and it was fabulous to be able to train right in my home!”

Laurie Eisenhower, Founder and former Artistic Director of Eisenhower Dance, Professor Emerita of Dance at Oakland University
