Director of Sense of Power Pilates
Level 3 Pilates Instructor
Alisha grew up in Canberra and was accepted as a contemporary dancer to WAAPA in 2006. An injury to her pelvis and hip socket introduced Alisha to Physiotherapy based Pilates to support her continued full-time dance training, until surgery was needed in 2009. After spending time traveling and relocating to Sydney, Alisha sought out Sally Anderson and the Pilates International studios (PilatesINT) after a recommendation from a childhood dance teacher, as a way to recondition her body and postpone the need for further surgery. Alisha developed a consistent practice, her pain levels reduced, and she was hooked.
A vision and goal setting conversation as part of her employment with Lululemon Athletica inspired Alisha to dream big and enrol in the Diploma of Professional Pilates Instruction with Pilates International Training Centre (PilatesITC) in 2015. Upon graduation Alisha was accepted as a Permanent Instructor and has been teaching full time ever since.
WHAT GETS ALISHA EXCITED AND PASSIONATE ABOUT PILATES?
“That through patience, persistence and by celebrating the little steps along the way; anything is possible.”
Alisha currently works with a wide variety of clients including those who are Pre & Post Natal, Professional Artists and Athletes, clients with Scoliosis and MS, as well as those that are generally fit and healthy. Alisha's long-term vision is to be part of an Injury Prevention & Rehabilitation Team using Pilates to extend the careers of professional artists and athletes.
When not in a Pilates Studio, Alisha and her husband can be found indulging their creative side by attending theatre performances, getting out of the city on the motorbike, and pulling silly faces with their 10 nieces and nephews.
