Elaine Hayes is a mother, wellness-lover, and the Founder & CEO of MNTSTUDIO. Driven by her desire to help people and her personal passion for wellness, she started her business with a single reformer machine in the spare bedroom of her apartment. From there, MNT has continued to grow – the studio now occupies over 6,000 square feet in SoMa, and has become a go-to destination for Pilates, barre, and holistic wellness for the Bay Area fitness community. Elaine has personally crafted the MNT Pilates and barre approach to combine classical principles of alignment and precision with more contemporary techniques. As a result, classes are challenging yet accessible for all fitness levels. Through MNT, she strives to empower each and every individual to transform their lives for the better through movement, self-care, and community.
