Annalee Traylor was first introduced to Pilates as a form of cross training for dancers during her time in high school at the North Carolina school of the Arts. She went on to receive her BFA with honors in dance performance from Point Park University and since, has been dancing professionally. She quickly found that fitness, in particular Pilates, Barre, and Yoga was a perfect complement to her lifestyle and decided to share her knowledge and passion for wellness with others. She became certified in Power Vinyasa Yoga in 2011 through Yoga Alliance and in 2013, she was certified in Tracy Mallet's "The Booty Barre". Since relocating to Los Angeles to expand her dance career, her interest in Pilates was reignited after teaching at a studio alongside classically trained Pilates instructors. Incredibly inspired by the detail and quality of the method and instruction, she decided to embark on the long, rigorous, yet extremely rewarding journey training through the prestigious Romanas Pilates.
