I’ve been a member here for a few years now and have been so slow to get this review written! Alissa is a fabulous instructor/coach, so knowledgeable and her PT training makes her stand out. I know I’m in good hands!
I discovered Pilates in 2000 while working as a personal trainer, quickly falling in love with the transformative benefits and whole body integration of the method. Within a year of completing my comprehensive training with the PhysicalMind Institute I decided to open a small studio in Indianapolis, which at the time was a considerable leap of faith as almost no one in the midwest had ever heard of Pilates!
After 17 years working with clients of all fitness levels and ages I realized my passion for innovative instruction was driving me to think outside of the classical Pilates box. A more contemporary style of teaching was in order so in 2017 I traveled to Beverly Hills to train under renowned Balance Body Pilates instructor Maria Leone, completing a 500 hour bridge program in the summer of 2018.
I love finding a balance between maintaining a dynamic flow and precise instruction. I utilizes props and a creative mix of equipment to challenge clients while at the same time meeting them exactly where they are that day.
I now split my time between running Balance Pilates Studio in Indianapolis and guest teaching in Los Angeles.
