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.
