WELCOME! More than a decade ago, I left the corporate world to spread the joy of Pilates. In this time, I’ve been rewarded with the wonderful changes I’ve seen happen in bodies and minds. Spines miraculously lengthen, pounds melt away, and best of all I see people begin to enjoy the body they were born with. I learn something new from my inspiring clients each day and have come to understand why Joseph Pilates called his method The Art of Control. In a world in which we have so little control of everything else, it’s exciting to see the confidence that comes from bodies achieving their fullest potential.

PRO ATHLETES DO PILATES!

Lauren Fendrick & Brooke Niles

Pro Beach Volleyball players, Matt Fuerbringer, Lauren Fendrick and Brooke Niles (formerly Hanson) train with me. 2012 was an exciting year as all three of them narrowly missed the London Olympics, ending their season ranked 3rd (only 2 teams from each country go). With Pilates, they have long careers ahead and you can even work out with them on Pilatesology. Check out the links below!

I had never done Pilates before finding Alisa and I immediately noticed a difference. Her methods transformed the stubborn areas of my body (abs, butt, thighs) more than any workout I have done with previous trainers or classes. What’s more amazing is that I actually look forward to my workouts. – Angel Archer, Model

MY FAVORITE PILATES-WEAR

home_596115love_.gif

Everyone asks me what my favorite exercise clothes are and I have to confess, I am an expert on this topic! Most days, I am in workout gear all day long and have worn every brand to death.

Which is why I’m always excited to find a new brand like 15Love: Quality Sports Wear. These are absolutely tops in craftsmanship, hug your curves in all the right places and draw compliments like crazy. I had their capris on at my local farmer’s market recently and 4 people stopped me to ask where I got them. Here’s one of my go-to outfits, featured in a story on HellaWella:
