Train your body-brain as one, dynamic whole.
Training with Alissa provides you the advantage of working with multiple modalities all at once. Whether you are rehabbing an injury, managing chronic pain, reacquainting yourself with working out, or just love having an expert keep you on track, every session combines:
- The precision and core strength of the Pilates Method
- The chronic-pain-busting, performance enhancing magic of applied neurology, aka Z-health
- The playful power and stabilization of Strength Training and Ground Flow
The quest of each session is to meet you where you are at, and to interweave your in-the-moment-needs with your long-term goals. Using gait assessment and other practical neurological assessments in each session, we quickly find the path of least resistance to get you moving and feeling better.
Over the course of training together we will tune in deeply to your body and neural patterns, and have you feeling confident, empowered, and at least a little bit more in love with your own body and mind.
We frequently work with the following conditions:
- Unresolved brain trauma/concussion
- Pelvic floor & deep abdominal weakness
- Computer neck/shoulders
- Low back pain
- Sacroiliac instability
- Knee pain / IT band syndrome
- Foot and ankle pain
- Poor Balance
- Chronic Pain
- Poor coordination / Difficulty following exercise instruction

Gentle Pilates focuses on moving slowly enough so that you can align your body, feel the burn, and find a healing, appropriate challenge no matter your age or ability. Hands-on adjustments help every student learn how to work with their body, rather than spend the class in struggle-mode.
