Aloha! I'm Arlene Salomon owner of Bodywork & Pilates
I'm a Classical Pilates teacher. I've been a devoted practitioner since 2002 and teaching since 2010. What I know to be true is that Pilates becomes more potent when studying with teachers who trained close to it's source. I had the extraordinary opportunity to train with Jay Grimes, one of the few remaining teachers who learned the Method directly from it's inventor, Joe Pilates. I am a graduate of THE WORK, a very selective, performance based masters program directed by Jay Grimes at Vintage Pilates in Los Angeles. Because of my training, technique and love of teaching I offer some of the best Pilates instruction around.

I am also a licensed Massage Therapist practicing with a wide range of skills including "Temple Style" Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Sports Massage and specialized Bodywork that balances the structure and energy of the skeleton.
