hallee altman

founder

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.
