Hallee has been teaching the Pilates Method since 2001. After her first mat class she instantly became hooked, and just as Joseph Pilates guaranteed, saw changes in her body in just ten private sessions. She was driven to learn more, and quickly became inspired to teach others to better understand their body’s boundaries and intensify their workouts while staying pain-free. Certified by Romana Kryzanowska, Joseph Pilates’ protégé, Hallee furthers her education by taking weekly sessions and continuing education courses taught by industry leaders.

Hallee is also a MELT Master Trainer and co-creator of MELTed Pilates: a revolutionary approach that focuses on rebalancing the nervous system and hydrating connective tissue, resulting in greater overall performance of the body. Hallee has presented her curriculum at the annual Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) conference, Balanced Body’s Pilates on Tour (POT), and most recently on Pilates Anytime. Hallee continues to evolve the MELTed Pilates curriculum and offers teacher trainings through the MELT Method.

Hallee graduated summa cum laude from Emory University and authored her first Psychological research study in 1999. In 2003 she earned a Master’s degree in Dance Education from NYU. Prior to opening The Center Studio, she worked as a creative movement teacher and social skills educator, teaching children with special needs to discover the power of movement and nonverbal communication. She lives in Harlem with her husband, two daughters, and puppy, Kona.
