Mischa is a PMAÂ® Certified Pilates Instructor and trained at The Pilates Center of Boulder whose owners, Amy Alpers and Rachel Segel, studied with Pilates Elder Romana Kryzanowska, a long-time student of Joseph Pilates.

She co-leads the InsideOut Body Therapies Pilates Teacher Training and is Director of the InsideOut Body Therapies Pilates-Based Physical Therapy Program.
Mischaâ€™s love of movement began with her study of ballet, modern dance, and theater. After witnessing the effectiveness of Pilates in rehabilitating injuries during a ballet workshop, Mischa knew that she wanted to integrate Pilates into her physical therapy practice.
Mischa developed the Pilates-Based Physical Therapy Program (PBPT) at InsideOut Body Therapies in 2006. PBPT is a client-centered approach to healing grounded in the moving body that assesses and treats the whole person â€” not just an injury or symptom â€” through Pilates exercises and traditional physical therapy methods.
Mischa is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, the North Carolina Physical Therapy Association, and the Pilates Method AllianceÂ®. She has training in manual therapy through Maitland Australian Physiotherapy Seminars and Michigan Stateâ€™s School of Osteopathic Medicine.
