Alisa has been teaching Pilates since 1999 when she left her high-powered publishing job to spread her passion for Pilates. She and her husband Jack are the creators of Pilatesology, a website dedicated to recording, preserving and spreading Joseph Pilates’ original work worldwide. She’s been featured in Departures, Self, Glamour, Family Circle, Pilates Style and is a sought-after presenter at Pilates and fitness conferences worldwide.
A Pilates purist, Alisa was trained and certified by Pilates legend, Romana Kryzanowska, in New York City where she ran a successful studio for a decade before moving home to California in 2008. A believer in learning from the source, Alisa has sought out training from those who were trained by Mr. Pilates himself. She studied with the late Kathy Grant in New York and currently trains with one of the few remaining teachers who worked for Mr. Pilates: Jay Grimes.
When she’s not traveling the globe filming classes with world-renowned instructors for Pilatesology, Alisa spends her time in Hermosa Beach, CA, where she and Jack get outside as much as possible, surfing, hiking and playing. She holds Pilates responsible for keeping her body healthy and fit.
Alisa’s client list includes Olympic athletes, supermodels and real people who want to look and perform at their absolute best. Pilates with Alisa is a personalized, vigorous, whole body workout that creates a long, lean, balanced physique.
