Melissa Lee

Hello! I’m Melissa, the owner of Movement of Pilates. I’ve been working in the fitness industry for 18 years and as a Pilates instructor for 16 of those years. My original certification is a very classical “New York” training, but I also pursue continuing education courses in an effort to discover all forms of Pilates. Over the course of my teaching career, I moved from focusing on the “fitness” side of Pilates to the rehab side. I have clients of all levels, but my true passion is helping those that are maybe unable to find help in a traditional gym or general therapy setting due to injury, disability or medical condition. In 2018, after five years of studying and preparation, I became an official ScolioPilates instructor. And let me tell you, I love working with the curviest of spines! I pride myself on my creativity as an instructor. I always mix it up and keep my clients guessing with what we will do each session!

I have two amazing boys and in my free time I compete in half-marathons and triathlons and travel as much as possible. I have found a great balance in life and I know that’s because of my job.  Helping others feel better, move better, and BE better is so rewarding! And FUN too!

Lori Mora

Pilates is not just a career for Lori Mora, it’s a lifestyle! Lori’s love for Pilates began eight years ago as she was taking a Pilates mat class. After just a few classes, she began to feel taller, leaner, and had even regained the “spunk in her jump!” With a 14-year career as a Massage Therapist/Technician and Esthetician she brings much knowledge and passion into helping her clients experience a sense of wellness in their bodies. Lori received her certificate at the Pilates Sports Center in Encino, CA. Her philosophy has always been “your health is your wealth and with proper movement and nutrition, the body has the ability to heal itself.” Lori knew she needed to share how Pilates can be used as a life-long preventative to maintain a healthy body inside and out. As an instructor, it is important to her that every person who comes to her class feels like it is all about them. Whether leading a private or a group session, Lori’s passion is to make people feel their best through their practice. Her goal is to meet you wherever you are in your body and find that mind-body connection of health, wellness, flexibility and strength.

Lori is a 55-year-old woman who feels stronger today than she did when she was in her 30s and she credits this to Pilates! She works to help everyone feel as youthful as they can in their bodies.

Crystal Edwards

“Its all in the detail!” Crystal Edwards has a unique ability to help each person she works with understand how to attain pain-free movement, gain strength, and build confidence. This, and her incredible sense of humor, is what keeps her clients coming back. She is driven by her passion to truly make a difference in the lives of her clients. Crystal has her Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology and has many years of experience working in the rehabilitation and fitness industries. She has worked with a wide range of clientele, from cardiac and physical rehabilitation patients to elite athletes. However, it was in trying to find relief from her own back pain that led her to Pilates, as other methods did not work.

After practicing Pilates herself, she earned her Pilates certification with PMA and has been practicing since 2006. Both her training and experience working with a wide range of populations allows Crystal to teach clients in a fun and challenging class no matter their current fitness level.

Lisa Colvard

After getting hooked on Pilates in 2003, Lisa Colvard became a dedicated Pilates instructor and in 2008 began instructing at a few studios around the Santa Clarita Valley. She originally sought out Pilates after extreme back and abdominal weakness aggravated by pregnancy. With Pilates, Lisa found that her back pain was remedied and her core was strengthened in a way weight training had never addressed.

She was first certified at Pilates Teck in Newhall, CA, and in 2012, Lisa became certified through the Pilates Method Alliance, an internationally recognized certifying program. She is inspired to help other’s achieve their fitness goals of a balanced body through strength and flexibility with classes that are fun, challenging and always safe for every body.
