Annalee Traylor

Annalee Traylor was first introduced to Pilates as a form of cross training for dancers during her time in high school at the North Carolina school of the Arts. She went on to receive her BFA with honors in dance performance from Point Park University and since, has been dancing professionally. She quickly found that fitness, in particular Pilates, Barre, and Yoga was a perfect complement to her lifestyle and decided to share her knowledge and passion for wellness with others. She became certified in Power Vinyasa Yoga in 2011 through Yoga Alliance and in 2013, she was certified in Tracy Mallet's "The Booty Barre". Since relocating to Los Angeles to expand her dance career, her interest in Pilates was reignited after teaching at a studio alongside classically trained Pilates instructors. Incredibly inspired by the detail and quality of the method and instruction, she decided to embark on the long, rigorous, yet extremely rewarding journey training through the prestigious Romanas Pilates.
 
 

Sheena Jongeneel

Sheena Jongeneel, UpRise Founder and President, has been involved in the health industry since 1993. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Dance from California State University Fullerton, and she began studying Pilates due to a knee injury. After college Sheena moved to NY to become certified in the Pilates Method of Body Conditioning. She had the opportunity to study under, and get certified by Master Teacher Romana Kyrzanoska, sole heir to the authentic Pilates Method. Sheena has now been teaching Classical Pilates for the past 13 years. Prior to founding UpRise in Santa Monica, she owned a Pilates studio in Newport Beach in 1998, which she sold in 2006 to move to Los Angeles. Looking to integrate a complimentary alternative method of rehabilitation to Pilates, Sheena discovered the Healing Arts of Oriental Medicine. She studied at Emperor’s College in Santa Monica and is also a California State licensed Acupuncturist. UpRise was born out of a passion and desire to continue the true work of Joseph Pilates. Sheena wanted to create a studio where the integrity of his work would remain pure and authentic. She also wanted to integrate her Acupuncture practice to offer a holistic health and wellness program at a single location.
