Immersion™ Pilates Aquatics™
I am a movement, rehab & pilates enthusiast.
I'm Alicia, but most people call me Alex. I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts/Psychology (UO '99; GO DUCKS!) & still use my degree on the daily. I come to the table with a myriad of movement experience & have devoted a majority of my adult life helping people get into their bodies whether it be in Pilates studios (UCSF, Tucson & Oakland), rock climbing gyms, outpatient behavioral health settings, work spaces, home settings, or even the great outdoors.
In 2011, I completed my comprehensive Pilates Training Program in Tucson, Arizona. I have actively been participating in movement/continuing education opportunities, since 1995. To this day, I still take at minimum, two Pilates/movement classes per week. Nerding out on anatomy & movement patterns with other movement folks keeps me fresh & connected. During my sessions, I strive to find a process, which speaks to each individual based on their background experiences. Then, we go from there.
I am a California native (shout out to my hometown of Sacramento!) & moved to Oakland with my partner & animal family in the fall of 2012. I established both my Private Pilates/Movement business & Mister Beever's Paws & Claws, where I am also the CEO & Pet Pro/Vet Tech Assistant Extraordinaire.
