My name is Mary Ellen Lorello. I am trained in Pilates, Coaching, and Meditation, and I would like to help you live to your fullest potential.
I have been practicing meditation for almost 30 years. In 2006 I committed to a daily practice of sitting in meditation for at least 30 minutes a day, usually much longer. I have participated in many lengthy retreats and meetings with teachers. In early 2017 I finally had the opportunity to become a certified teacher of meditation through a training by The Open Heart Project, and I am thrilled to be able to share this simple yet amazing spiritual practice with those who are interested.
My education as a pilates instructor began around the same time as my deepened meditation practice, with my first mat certifications in 2008 through Pilates Certification of NC in Cary, NC. During 2015 and 2016 I completed training on the Reformer through Balanced Body. I have witnessed the healing power of these exercises in my own body after neck surgery, abdominal surgery, and a back injury. I live pain free, and I believe pilates is the reason for that.
