  • Anna first experienced Pilates in 1998 while on vacation at Canyon Ranch in Tucson.  Upon returning to New York, Anna started taking sessions at Real Pilates (then known as Tribeca Bodyworks) and mat classes at Re:Ab.  She connected with the methodology so much that she applied for and was accepted into the Teacher Certification Program at The Pilates Center of New York (now known as True Pilates or Romana's Pilates). Leaving the corporate world of advertising behind, Anna completed the program in the fall of 2001 and has been teaching since 2002.
  • In 2007, Anna began exploring with movement within the Gyrotonic Expansion System which is a complementary modality to Pilates.  Anna has been a Certified Level One Gyrotonic Instructor since 2009 which adds to her versatility in the studio.

  • Alexia has been my Pilates instructor for the last 5 years. She is a true professional - a superb teacher, explaining with tremendous expertise each Pilates move, with complete focus on each detail involved with that move.  Alexia makes it fun to learn Pilates and motivates me to improve my skills.  I look forward to my Pilates lessons because Alexia is such an outstanding instructor!!

    I have been studying (doing, practicing?) Pilates for 20 years and didn't think there was anything left to learn.  In each session, Alexia helps me discover something new:  how to lengthen my hips, push evenly between my feet, pull in my abdominals into a "V". Every session is creative, well-planned, and tailored to my body and physical goals.

    I came to Pilates on the suggestion of my orthopedist in hopes of relieving the pain I experienced everyday due to my sciatica. It worked. after a few months of Pilates, I no longer woke up to pain. It is a continuing process. That being said, let me tell you about my instructor Alexia. She is firm, she is relentless, and at the same time she is warm and caring....Alexia is able to read your body. She sees if you are a 1/4 inch off your mark. She is able to see if your shoulders are back, your "core" is engaged and your thighs are "wrapped" all at the same time. With a brush of a finger and a reminder to stay "engaged" she has your body doing what it is supposed to do. Alexia is truly amazing. She doesn't miss a beat. I am lucky to have found her.

    Alexia, yesterday's workout was amazingly deep! I cannot believe how sore my abs are-you know, that good sore? And my bottom, too!!! Not to mention my triceps. It's like I've never worked out before. You were able to target muscles I have never felt before in all my years doing Pilates taking ballet or going to the gym. Whatever we did in my session was really incredible work, so deceptively challenging! I want more, more more. You totally deliver. You rock. It's as simple as that. You are a gifted teacher. Thank you.

    Alexia creates a relationship with each one of her students, finding ways to teach them based on a student’s needs and understanding. When Alexia teaches Pilates it is a ‘we’ not just a ‘me’.
