In 2007 Alisa and her husband moved to Jersey City. She was on the hunt for a Pilates studio to call home. That is when she found the Pilates Haus, a classical Pilates Teacher Training Center.
Her first class at the Pilates Haus was a Mat class taught by none other than Brett Howard himself! (Director of Education for the USPA and second generation/Master Teacher certified by Joseph Pilates’ protégé Romana Kryzanowska.) Alisa realized quickly that Pilates wasn’t just a workout, it was a way of life!
As a full time Singer/Songwriter, Alisa found Pilates to be wonderfully beneficial for her craft. She immediately noticed the connection between core strength and improved breath while performing. After having training as a client at the Pilates Haus for over ten years, Alisa decided to deepen her practice and become a Certified Pilates Instructor in 2017. Alisa also has a dual BA in English and Economics from The University of California, Berkeley.
