As a master Pilates instructor since 2008, Alyse Farkas has worked with thousands of clients, helping them look and feel better. Her customized classes, which have been sold out for 13+ years, are a testimony to her knowledge of the body, her motivational techniques and her goal-oriented client support that sets her apart as one of the premier Pilates instructors in Southern California.

Alyse is renowned for challenging her clients to push harder in her rigorous classes leaving practitioners initially exhausted, but then renewed and replenished with energy. She focuses on the whole body helping clients strengthen all their muscle groups, especially their core, which wraps the skeleton for perfect posture and impacts the back and joints.

As the founder of Reformacore, Alyse is fiercely dedicated to not only helping her clients get into shape, but also live pain free, a world that was very familiar to her when she was in her early twenties. Too often, she found herself suffering with excruciating back pain. X-rays confirmed scoliosis, a curvature of the spine. Her orthopedic surgeon recommended physical therapy, including Pilates exercises, which strengthened the core muscles around her spine to help with alignment and correct posture. Thrilled with the relief from periodic back pain and from weeks in bed every few months, Alyse decided to dedicate herself to helping others. She threw herself into becoming an expert at Pilates and took a rigorous physical and written exam to become a certified Stott Pilates instructor. “I’m passionate about Pilates,” said Alyse, who has not had debilitating back pain since she started Pilates training in 2005.

Sabrina’s passion for working with others started from a young age. While attending high school, she volunteered at a non-profit organization serving children experiencing poverty. As a result of her experience, she knew that she wanted a career helping others. Although born and raised in Los Angeles, Sabrina fell in love with Pilates while living in Denver, Colorado. After attending Mat and Reformer classes at a small boutique studio, she noticed the impact her own personal Pilates practice had on her physical and mental health. Once she graduated from the University of Colorado, Sabrina decided to follow a path that would allow her to combine her passion for Pilates with her desire to help better the lives of those within her community. 
Sabrina earned a full comprehensive Pilates certification in Mat, Reformer, Cadillac and Stability Chair. She loves to work with people of all levels and takes great pride in helping her clients achieve their goals. 




Carina’s deep love for movement, health, and wellness began as a child. From ballet, tennis, and soccer, to hanging around the kitchen cooking with her family, Carina most enjoys spending time with others in ways that nourish the body, mind, and spirit. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Carina was lucky enough to explore all facets of boutique fitness which included weight training, yoga, spinning, dance, boxing, bootcamps, and of course, Pilates. Carina has been practicing Pilates since 2016.  She fell in love with the way Pilates strengthens the core, fixes posture and rids the body of pain, all in a way that is safe and low impact.

Carina earned her bachelor’s degrees in Economics and English from Tulane University, with a Minor in Health & Wellness. Although most of Carina’s background is in real estate and finance, for years Carina has trained her friends and family for fun. Following her passion for Pilates, in 2023 Carina trained with KLPM in Santa Monica to earn her comprehensive Mat and Reformer Pilates Certification. Drawn to Reformacore’s style of Pilates and hooked by the results, Carina found her home studio. Carina aims to brighten her clients days with supportive motivation through challenging workouts enabling them to shine from the inside out.
