Alicia has had a long journey with her relationship with Pilates. She first began as a mat student at her local gym when she was just a teenager. Over the years, she has had a long career of standing as a hairstylist and Pilates has always been a way to maintain her body for life and work. She’s done other types of workouts like yoga and for many years enjoyed CrossFit. In 2018 she had a few injuries that felt lingering even with physical therapy, she turned to private sessions with her favorite instructor and Pilates was how she healed her body.

In July of 2022, she moved to San Diego from the Pacific Northwest and embarked on her teaching journey. She completed in-person training at BASI Pilates USA headquarters in Newport Beach and has had the pleasure of being mentored and learning from the Pilates of San Diego team. Three things she emphasizes in her classes are form, slowing movements down, and body awareness.

When Alicia's not in the studio you can find her still working as a hairstylist in La Jolla. She loves San Diego and everything there is to see and do. Her favorites include Balboa Park and the museums, sunset cliffs, the many art and makers markets, taking pottery classes and just exploring the many unique neighborhoods we have here.
