"Every moment of our life can be the beginning of great things."

Joseph Pilates

Michelle is an instructor at J Pilates. She began with J Pilates as a client looking to get active again. Soon after beginning her Pilates practice, she was hooked! Years later she was called to attend training in order to share the benefits of Pilates with others, to enhance the studio’s community, and to make a change in others’ lives through fitness. Her past experience as both a private and group class client gives her a great perspective, which shows in her teaching style. Outside of instructing, Michelle is a professional landman with a focus on research into oil and gas mineral interests. She comes to us from Orange, Texas and often travels back to see family and friends. A few fun things about Michelle: she loves working core and legs the most in class!; she played college volleyball; being in and around the water, as well as gardening, are two of her favorite relaxing activities; variations of plank can be found in most, if not all, of her classes; she used to be a massage therapist; and she loves good music!
