Lisa first discovered Pilates after a horseback riding accident in Australia. The Physical Therapy Clinic she was referred to used Stotts reformers and was a Stotts Pilates training center. After a few sessions she discovered her body felt and moved better than it had in years. She found that Pilates eliminated her lower back pain, improved her posture, and increased her overall strength and flexibility. She was hooked!
In the fall of 2013, she began the comprehensive Pilates teacher training program through Stotts Pilates. Soon she made a huge career change when she began teaching at Bodyworks Physical Therapy center in Perth, Australia. The incredible training, support and encouragement she received from the gifted master instructors prompted her to continue studying. Lisa has completed multiple courses in Scoliosis management, knee/hip stability and function, and movement modification for all bodies. Lisa expanded her Pilates Certifications upon completion of the Post Rehabilitative Conditioning Course through Stotts Pilates and continually studies with a Pilates Master Instructor primarily focusing on rehabilitative Pilates. She plans to expand her Pilates practice with specialty training with the Oov in the near future.
She wholeheartedly believes that Pilates is a wonderful tool for moving in a supportive environment, no matter what age, size or flexibility level. She is here to help you get strong, and find your own inner strength no matter your ability. Her favorite reaction from clients is the “aha” moment when it all clicks and they discover the Pilates magic for themselves.
The journey is very personal and she believes Pilates works for EVERY BODY!
