If you’ve been MELTing with us for a while, chances are you’ve seen Hallee Altman around—she’s a friend of Sue (and even an occasional MELT model!) and a certified Master MELT Instructor. She also has her own NYC-based Pilates studio, Candlestick Pilates—and pilates and creative movement are where her passion started. 

Hallee was certified by Romana Kryzanowska (Joseph Pilates’ protégé) and has since presented at the Pilates Method Alliance conference and Balanced Body’s Pilates on Tour. 

And now the most relevant info of the moment—she’s the co-creator of our latest offering, MELTed Pilates! It all started when Hallee noticed a huge difference in the students who MELTed before their pilates practice—less compensation, better range of motion, and bigger results were made by her students (regardless of their age!) 


While Hallee’s a firm believer in any pilates being better than no pilates (because people are moving, after all) adding MELT to prepare for pilates exercises as well as adding innovative variations to the pilates mat work and apparatus exercises using the MELT Soft Half Roller enhances people’s practice by giving them a boost in efficiency and injury prevention. The result is MELTed Pilates—a perfect blend of two powerhouse methods. Whether you do classical or contemporary pilates (or have never done pilates at all) adding MELT is a game changer. You have a lot to look forward to as you explore and learn the foundational MELTed Pilates Prep Sequences with Sue and unique MELTed Pilates classes with Hallee. This collection is going to refine your practice and take it to the next level.  


Sue and Hallee developed the MELTed Pilates Instructor training curriculum and have trained hundreds of instructors who teach the format in group classes since 2015. MELTed Pilates is finally launching this August on MELT on Demand. Hallee is making history as the first instructor outside of Sue to present a practice on our streaming platform. We’re thrilled to be able to bring subscribers Hallee’s top-notch experience and approachable, enthusiastic teaching style. Spend a few minutes getting to know her in a little flash interview we like to call The Three Things Lightning Round
