Elaine Hayes is the Founder & CEO of MNTSTUDIO, a Pilates and barre studio with a holistic approach to wellness. Driven by her desire for a career where she could help people, Elaine graduated from college and enrolled in law school before realizing her real passion was wellness. After earning her Pilates instructor certification, she purchased a single reformer machine and opened her first studio in the spare bedroom of her apartment. Within months, her schedule was completely booked, and she set her sights on bootstrapping an expansion. Recently named the Bay Area’s top Pilates studio by San Francisco Magazine, MNTSTUDIO now occupies 6,000 square feet in SoMa and offers mat and reformer Pilates and barre classes taught by a team of 30+ instructors, with a second studio opening later this year in Palo Alto.

Elaine has also developed her own comprehensive teacher trainings for her staff and other aspiring instructors from around the world. Through MNT, she strives to empower each and every individual to transform their lives for the better through movement, self-care, and community.
