A native of the Pacific Northwest, Asa discovered Pilates when studying for his Doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of Miami. Asa was immediately attracted to Pilates for not only its use in rehabilitation and Physical Therapy, but also for the effect it had on his body and its ability to improve the wellbeing and fitness of people of all ages and fitness levels.
Asa completed his certification with Polestar Pilates in Miami, Florida in 2011, and has used Pilates for Physical Therapy and general fitness ever since. In addition to his Pilates certification and Doctorate of Physical Therapy, Asa also holds a Bachelors in Health Sciences, and is an Orthopedic Certified Specialist in Physical Therapy and a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist.
Asa has been a Hawaii resident since 2017 and spends his free time surfing, hiking, diving, and being a proud father of his young son.
