Meltem trained in classical ballet from the age of 5. As a young adult, she transitioned to Salsa and Argentine Tango which she has both performed and taught. She discovered Pilates as a practice to help strengthen and condition her body both as a performer and in her everyday existence and immediately became passionate about the work. After a year of self-practice, she completed the Instructor Training at the Academy of Seratonin Pilates in Turkey and has been an instructor since 2016.

She has completed:

- STOTT PILATES Intensive Mat Plus
- STOTT PILATES Intensive Reformer
- Intensive Stability Chair
- Injuries & Special Population courses
- Optimization of the Shoulder Complex
- Pilates with the Props
- Halo® Training Instructor Foundation Course and is on track to become a fully certified advanced level STOTT PILATES Instructor.

She strongly believes that rather than doing more reps, having the correct posture and alignment with the fewer repetitions will help you recruit the correct muscle group and build strength, so that's why you can see her running around trying to correct your posture one by one in a group class as well as training private clients :) And for her learning & teaching Pilates is an endless adventure, you will see her traveling around the States to learn more and transfer that to her clients.

Having recently relocated to the United States, she is enjoying teaching Pilates and helping people be healthy. Meltem is a graduate of Istanbul Technical University with a degree in Industrial Engineering and has worked as an engineer for several companies, but after having a daughter in 2017, she is happy to be focusing on her Pilates career.
