The Pilates Room - core training

I would give 6 stars if I could. Michele really knows her stuff. As a beginner, with a fractured ankle, I found her to be very understanding, flexible and willing to modify exercises as needed. I can’t believe how fast I’ve seen my strength increase and muscle definition show. She is a pleasure to work with – always in a good mood and keeps her studio in excellent condition! She has changed my life. Thank you Michele for everything you do. Susan G.

I’ve been a serious Pilates student for about 6 years now and I can say without hesitation that Michele is the best instructor I’ve ever worked with. She has a solid understanding of the traditional Pilates movements but doesn’t hesitate in mixing things up to keep each workout fresh. The equipment is clean and in good shape and Michele is very enthusiastic and energetic in her approach. Highly recommended.  Tim C.

Michele is the best!  I’ve gone to her studio for Pilates but she is also an incredible yoga instructor.  She is extremely knowledgable in nutrition, health and wellness and has a vast array of knowledge to share.  She is very dedicated and passionate about her Pilates and yoga practices.  Amy M.

Michele is an expert instructor, able to customize sessions for individual clients as well as their changing needs over time.  She challenges me and never ceases to amaze me with the variety of workouts.  Michele’s also an enthusiastic foodie with a true commitment to an overall healthy lifestyle.  Janet S.

Michele is an excellent instructor and has helped me feel more balanced and strong in my body. I had an injury that was being reactivated doing yoga, but doing Pilates actually helped it to repair, and I haven’t needed Chiropractic adjustments
so often!  Ramona C.

I started Pilates for strength training , it has helped with my tennis game and also everyday life dealing with grandchildren, I don’t like the gym but look forward to my sessions with Michele. She is so professional and upbeat it makes working out fun and you feel so good after. I can’t believe I have stayed with Pilates for over a year! Mary J

“Pilates has changed me–I’m stronger, more flexible, and energetic. At age 68, I’ve never felt better! I love Michele’s classes and reformer sessions.” Helen G.

Pilates at MBM Studio has greatly improved my core strength after back surgery. This is a fantastic workout for all ages and abilities. Pilates targets the inner core muscles and improves flexibility and balance. It is a very useful rehab tool and it is an excellent physical therapy method.  Michele is extremely knowledgeable and works to teach all levels of Pilates students  Lisa May

“Michele McCauley is da bomb! I’ve heard so many people over the years say they have back problems, they wish they had a stronger core or want to become a faster biker or runner. THIS is the solution! Pilates and specifically Michele will challenge you and take you to the next level of fitness. If you are a beginner or a seasoned athlete this should be the base of your exercise regimen. Book an appointment with her today, you won’t regret it!” Amy D

“Just wanted to reach out and let you know your yoga class last night was GREAT! Challenging and good for the soul:)” Lindsey

“Michele is the real deal– she knows what she is doing and I have learned a great deal from her! From alignment in yoga postures to suggestions and recipes for green smoothies and vegan zucchini bread, Michele has a true passion and commitment for a healthy community. I highly recommend her for anything related to fitness and nutrition!” Sara

Just wanted to tell you how much better my back feels! It’s looser and I slept really well last night, (that is except for my dog.) There’s far less pain and I can’t thank you enough. I promise to do those exercises and look forward to seeing you again on Wednesday. You are a very artful practitioner. Gratefully, Judy

Michele McCauley brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and professionalism to her practice of teaching of Pilates, Yoga, and nutritional counseling. I began working with Michele in May ’12, in my first exposure to Pilates.  I am now in my ninth month of Pilates; with Michele’s enthusiasm and gentle but disciplined approach, I have more energy, a stronger body and a strong back.  I am an RN and have benefited greatly from Michele’s overall knowledge related to health and wellness.  I invited Michele to address our hospital breast cancer support group, where she was received with much enthusiasm and deep gratitude for the information she provided them. Her integrity and healing intention shines through all the work she does.   p.j.alandydy RN

Michele’s Pilates classes and coaching are fantastic. We attend group classes and individual Reformer sessions. She’s an inspiration–knowledgeable, supportive, and patient coupled with fun and warmth. In just a few months, we feel the difference in strength, flexibility and balance. We’re hooked! ~Helen and Raymond

Taking Pilates with Michele has taken my exercise regime to a whole new level.  She works muscles I didn’t even know I had.  She shows up with a smile that inspires people to work hard.  Michele knows how to get results with her workouts, and she comes up with creative exercise routines.  I look forward to my workouts with Michele. ~Meg

I love your Pilates and yogaCore classes a lot because I feel they are a great workout. Every time I take a class with you I feel like there’s a new muscle group I’m targeting that I’ve never targeted before. The fact that I can modify the exercises according to my abilities is also great! ~Sylvia

Michele is a very talented teacher, excelling in yoga, pilates, nutrition, and personal training. Her clients love her drive and personal attention to their development. She has been working in this forum for over six years, and will continue to improve her skills so she may pass them on to her clients. -Paul

There are so many reasons to attend Michele’s classes, but for me it’s the fact that Michele is one of the most genuine, positive, inspiring Yoginis I have had the good fortune to practice with. Michele truly “lives what she teaches” — and has so much nutritional, and healthy movement information to share, I find myself feeling healthier just being in her presence! She inspires those around her to want to eat healthy and keep active by arriving at a Yoga class on her bicycle, sharing her healing tea and always coaching with encouraging words. Her authenticity and creative sequencing makes every class with her like an unplanned journey, to an unknown place. The unique movements provide distractions so that my body is unaware of the new stresses on unused muscle until it’s over and I feel like I’m walking on a cloud.

i was nervous about my 1st yoga class – my new years resolution to become more flexible. you made me feel very comfortable and i appreciate that. the class was challenging and fun. i’ll see you very soon.

For over a year I have been taking Yoga Core and Mat Pilates with Michele McCauley, she is an amazing teacher who I have already recommended to my friends. I’ve never felt motivated going to gym and running on the elliptical or the repetition of hundreds of sit-ups. No two classes are ever the same and I always feel motivated, challenged and energized after. My body is now more toned, flexible and your abs will defiantly thank you during swimsuit season! I noticed a difference in my posture and core strength I also have muscles in my arms and legs I never had before! I would highly recommend her practices to anyone interested in yoga and Pilates.
– Miranda Leveille

Over the last eight years I’ve worked with a number of yoga instructors, but it wasn’t until I found Michele that I began to love my practice. Her selflessness, joy, and love for Yoga and Pilates is infectious. Michele’s talent for working with a wide-range of students and abilities is also a testament to her skilled training and practice. She has done an exceptional job building students’ confidence and pushing boundaries. Practicing with her has grown my strength, flexibility, and endurance. I highly recommend her whether you’re into casual fitness, a weekend warrior, or a new yogi. —Christine Whitney

For the past year my wife and I have been practicing Yoga and Pilates under Michele’s supervision and guidance. Throughout this time she has been a very compassionate yet motivating mentor, teaching us to respect our body limits but strive for more. The constant progress we’ve observed throughout this time could not have been accomplished without Michele’s dedication and individually-catered attention. It has been a pleasure practicing yoga with Michele and I fully recommend her to anyone interested in improving their postures and building a stronger core.
Thank you Michele!! –Sorin Roman

I wanted to let you know how I instantly felt at peace entering the studio this morning. The environment was calm and positive.

Michele’s class was a workout! Jackie and I both want to return for more.
Sue Hubbard

I saw Jackie at church and she said your class was “fabulous”. I’ve been trying to get her to come to yoga classes for nearly 20 years, you might be the key! Bob Vaccaro, owner of Yoga by Donation

When I first moved back to New Hampshire I sought out numerous amounts of different yoga instructors looking for an instructor like Michele. I was just beginning to loose hope of getting an amazing well rounded instructor when I stumbled upon Michele’s class and it was, in a word, SENSATIONAL! She brought me back to a place I didn’t even know I was missing, and transformed my mind, body, and soul very quickly and beautifully. She is such a blessing and channel of divine wisdom for your yoga practice…. I would practice with her every day if I could!
Kate Matthews

Hello Michelle,

I just wanted to thank you for a great pilates class this morning. You are an excellent instructor!!! I love you Thursday class as well unfortunately due to my other commitments I was not able to make it this year so far. But my schedule will change I am looking forward to joining the group on Thursdays.

Michele, OMG what a super fantastic practice yesterday, just wanted to thank you so very much, I looked forward to it all day and needed it so bad, I was so there with breath, my head was in the right place and it was just “yummy” :-). Still feeling so great from that. Thank you so much, you’re re such an inspiration. Have a great day, see you tomorrow night. You always play such great music in class, this mornings music was great. I would like to get that playlist. See you Monday. Take good care. Namaste. xoxo Lucy 3/23/11

You stretched us out better than Shivea Rae Yin Yoga student~Catherin

Hi Michele,

You put our hips through the wringer last night but I have to say that when I got up this morning my right hip felt better than it had in months.

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your class and thank you for taking the time to give me additional pointers.

I think my recovery would definitely have stalled without your classes. I’m looking forward to watching your schedule and adding some classes!

And thanks for adding me to Facebook!
