Be the Best YOU
Our emotions, our thoughts: sadness, loss, grief — leaves a mark on our etheric body. Unresolved angst can lead to pain, which can accelerate many health conditions and disease. Our spiritual health has an impact on our physical health. Throughout life, we are learning how to manage, how to adapt — so we can become a more resilient human being.
Removing emotional barriers is key in releasing muscular tension, pain and dysfunction. Our goal is to ease the body back into re-integrating muscular balance and core strength — to create healthy patterns of movement.
Be in the present moment — pause and take a deep breath. Find gratitude in each day. When we learn to breathe more efficiently, we can restore the autonomic processes of the nervous system. We help the body function more efficiently. We do this Mind-fully.
I encourage, support, and guide my clients into a deeper understanding of who they are, and how they can move their own energetic barriers In finding their flow state. We work on calming the mind, so we can set a focus and intent. Our goal is to gain greater core strength, ease of movement, stability and balance.
Would you like to achieve a greater peace of mind — be more creative — feel more energetic? I am here to help guide you in learning how to reconstruct your life in becoming more joyful and having a greater peace of mind. This leads to greater resilience.
Each individual is unique, and capable of making the appropriate choices in effecting positive change. We all need support and guidance in learning how to make life changes that are sustainable.
Begin by acknowledging where you are today. Make the decision to step into becoming a stronger and healthier YOU!
“I had my knee replaced this summer. I reached out to Lori for advice before my procedure. She supported me with wonderful MELT interventions that I could do before and after my procedure. But even more importantly, she provided me with emotional support. She went above and beyond her role as a MELT teacher. I know that my recovery was and continues to benefit from Lori's guidance and caring. Lori is an amazing MELT and Pilates Instructor, and I am grateful that THPRD offers MELT classes taught by such a caring, knowledgeable, warm and supportive instructor. - Tina W. Portland, OR 1/2023
“Lori guides gentle MELT and Pilates treatments for aches and pains. She welcomes newbies and regulars to roll with comfort. She offers alternatives for all bodies. She teaches self-assessment techniques, always with empathy and humor. I especially like how she explains how body parts interact. She has inspired me to learn anatomy and movement, outside of class. Lori offers MELT and Pilates at Cedar Hills and Garden Home recreation centers--very accessible! Hip, hip, hurray...for Lori's MELT and Pilates classes. My left hip and neck are much better! Give it a try!”

“I’ve been taking Melt for Pilates and Pilates classes with Lori for over a year. The changes my body has made, the lessening of tightness, stiffness and pain have been remarkable. These successes inspire me to continue with enthusiasm and confidence that my body will continue to change and become even more healthy. I have high regard for Lori as a knowledgeable educator. Her positive energy is contagious, encouraging, and supportive. Lori truly cares about her students…and it shows.” - Alice W, Portland, OR, 1/2023
“Until Lori's class, I was unfamiliar with the MELT method. I have been doing it for about a year, and I do believe it is transformative. For years, my jaw has "popped," sometimes painfully, and after Lori's guidance using the MELT ball, it no longer does so. Lori truly cares about her students and is patient and kind. She goes above and beyond in supporting us regardless of our age, gender or physical abilities. She is truly the ultimate teacher!” - Sue, 1/2023
“Lori’s MELT class has provided me with life-long techniques that have and will continue to enhance my health, movement, balance, and overall well-being. Her warmth and care, her willingness to address individual concerns and levels of ability, her sharing to better educate us, and her passion for healthy living has made attending her classes a vital part of my weekly routine. Never have I walked out of class without feeling better than when I walked in. Always a positive and rewarding experience.“ - Brenda S. Portland, OR, 1/2023
"The BioField Tuning session was very pleasant and I felt peaceful, calm, energized and hopeful at the conclusion. The next day I had an insight about a change I needed to make in my life, one that I had contemplated before, and now knew that I had the courage to take action. Lori is a gentle, soft spoken healer who packs a big punch!" - Sheila 6/2022
“I participated in a special class with Lori dedicated entirely to releasing lower back pain. Her knowledge on the subject is vast and you can feel that she knows what she is speaking about. I loved the gentle space she holds and the variety of exercises. Everyone can find the one(s) they can relate to and which make them instantly feel better. I really recommend if you have lower back issues to learn these exercises from Lori so that you always have them at hand. And the beauty of it: you can do it from anywhere in the world!” - Agnes from France, 2021
Thank you, Agnes!! It is wonderful to find time with others around the world!!
"I thank you for offering such great classes And instruction. The last few years have been hard on my body. I had a very demanding job, sitting for long hours. I wasn’t taking very good care of myself. I was just surviving. After retiring from my job in December 2019, I was ready to focus on my health, when COVID-19 shut down everything. After months, with no end in sight, I signed up for virtual fitness classes. I remembered your MELT Method classes, and how I always felt 10 years younger after each class. Attending Lori’s MELT classes regularly, I feel 10 years younger all the time!! I can’t imagine how I would handle aging without MELT and Pilates. It has helped me to restore and repair the damage caused by too much sitting. I feel like I have been given some of my life back with every class! Thank you.”
