WELCOME TO OUR STUDIO...

The Pilates Project is founded and created by Michelle Lee, a dreamer and mover whose passion and zest for life drives our studio. Through the practice of Pilates, Barre, and Yoga, we strive to challenge each student to transform their bodies and spirit as we provide a clean, luxurious, and uplifting atmosphere. Because we offer small classes, we can provide personalized feedback, so you get the most out of your workout. Our workouts foster intelligent movement patterns and body awareness, while improving muscle tone, weight management, increased flexibility, strength, endurance, balance, and alignment. 

 
 
 

MEET MICHELLE...

Michelle is passionate about movement, currently holding certifications to teach Pilates, Barre, and Yoga, along with completing several advanced Pilates education courses. Falling in love with dance and competitions at a young age, she knew health and movement would be a lifelong path. This led Michelle to dance for the Cal Poly Mustangs for two years and later transferred to Fresno State where she completed her B.A. in Communication. Prior to graduation, she completed her Pilates Comprehensive Teacher Training through Body Arts of Science International (BASI) with an additional certification in Pilates for Dancers under the guidance of Karen Clippinger, M.S.P.E. Professor at Long Beach State University. Following her Pilates and College education, she also completed Booty Barre Training in San Francisco at Maiden Lane Studios, Mentor and Master Pilates Program with Rael Isacowitz M.A., the owner and founder of BASI Pilates in Costa Mesa, and completed a 200 hour Ashtanga Yoga Immersion Teacher Training with AstaYoga in San Francisco.

Michelle enjoys many forms of exercise and believes her Pilates, Barre, and Yoga practice serves as the perfect complement to other hobbies such as hiking, cycling, snowboarding, and competing in triathlons. In her downtime, she spends quality time with her husband, chihuahua, family, and friends. Recently relocated from the Bay Area to Fresno, Michelle is eager and excited to bring her love and faith of movement to The Pilates Project. We hope to welcome you to class soon!
