Kim Reis, 
MELT Instructor


I am a classically trained Pilates instructor, Level 3 MELT Method instructor, and former professional dancer with the Mark Morris Dance Group. Certified In 1999 under Romana Kryzanowska, I taught Pilates in studio, corporate, gym, and private settings all over NYC. After twelve years in NY, I moved to San Francisco to perform with an aerial dance group and taught Pilates to the SF Ballet as well as my own clientele. I eventually moved back to Portland and continued teaching Pilates to private clients as well as the Portland Trailblazers. I'm a featured teacher on Pilatesology, with over 30 classes on the site. In 2011, I had the good fortune of taking a MELT Method class from Sue Hitzmann, the creator of MELT. The changes I felt in that first class propelled me to want to understand how it worked! I trained with her in 2012 and in 2021 earned my Level 3 status.

I am excited to share the secrets of the MELT Method. It is my mission to help people feel better in their bodies and combat the negative effects of aging.
