Alisa has been teaching Pilates since 1999 when she left her high-powered publishing job to spread her passion for Pilates. Realizing there was a need to preserve Joseph Pilates’ original style of teaching, she and her husband Jack, a former travel photographer, created Pilatesology—the only website offering video instruction solely dedicated to classical Pilates.
Alisa was trained by the legendary Romana Kryzanowska in New York City. She taught out of her 3rd floor walk up in the West Village for over a decade before moving home to California. A believer in learning from the source, Alisa has sought out training from those who were trained by Mr. Pilates himself. Beyond her years of study with Romana, 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.
A featured expert for publications such as New York Magazine, Departures, Shape, Glamour, Self, Family Circle and Pilates Style, Alisa’s style brings focused, long-lasting results for clients who range from Olympic athletes to real people who want to look and perform at their absolute best.
When she's not traveling to film classes for Pilatesology, Alisa spends her time in Hermosa Beach, CA, where she and Jack get outside as much as possible, surfing, hiking and playing beach volleyball. Alisa and Jack both use Pilates to stay injury free, active and strong.
Alisa's event schedule can be found in the Pilatesology Event Directory.
