Melissa opened The Barre Studio, Hamburg in April 2015 after studying barre for many years and training for certification in Rome, Italy in 2014. She loves building relationships with clients, now friends, in the studio. The studio was designed to be a beautiful place to treat yourself to a killer workout, shut that brain off for 45 minutes, and leave feeling recharged and rebalanced. Lengthening and leaning along the way doesn't hurt either.
Shannon Schroeder, owner of The Pilates Studio, is a PMA certified Pilates instructor, and certified Stretch Therapy Teacher. She completed her Pilates teacher-training under second generation instructor, Risa Sheppard, and then went on to open The Pilates Studio in 2010. Shannon then began studying with Australian based flexibility expert, Kit Laughlin, and appreciates how his Stretch Therapy system compliments the Pilates method. She continues to fine tune her teaching skills with continuing education, and is currently preparing for a graduate level Pilates certification, delving deeper into her own understanding of the method and how to share it with others.
And yes - we are twins!
