Andree Khalaf is a graduate of Charity Hospital School of Nursing in New Orleans, Louisiana. Following years of nursing, working in the operating room, recovery room, emergency room and labor and delivery, she began working as a medical sales consultant and physician liaison for a national perinatal company.
She began Pilates classes to heal a hip injury sustained after delivering her fourth child. It was then that she realized the incredible benefits of Pilates. Pilates healed what medication only masked.
Andree entered the Power Pilates certification program, which required 600 hours of training and apprenticeship under the guidance of Veronica Combs, Director of Power Pilates training center in Dallas, Texas. She became fully certified in 2006.
Andree is the owner of The Pilates and Yoga Loft in Old Metairie, Louisiana. The Pilates and Yoga Loft fulfills Andree’s desire to educate area residents on the advantages of training in the classical Pilates method. A system which unveils the client’s weaknesses through movement, therefore, progressing only when the client’s body is ready.
Andree is an advocate on proper nutrition, exercise, and prevention of illnesses through movement. Movement is necessary to heal the body from the inside out.
Andree continues her studies taking continuing education in both nursing courses and Pilates courses. Her most recent studies were with master teachers in Dallas, Texas and New York City.
When not teaching, Andree enjoys spending time with her husband and four beautiful children, and granddaughter.
