Lisa’s passion and curiosity for movement started at an early age through dance, gymnastics and sports. With over 20 years of teaching movement, her personal journey with Pilates began in 1993 while earning her BA in Psychology at Indiana University. There, she danced with IU’s dance company and discovered her admiration for Pilates and the physical and mental benefits that it provides. Her love for dance, wellness, healing, fitness, education and leadership led her to become certified in Zumba, group fitness, meditation and, eventually, Pilates. Comprehensively trained through Balanced Body, Lisa is a certified instructor through Pilates Method Alliance (NPCP) and is a master trainer for Balanced Body.
Lisa brings passion, humor, education and attention to detail to each class and private session. She keeps her students on their toes by blending traditional and contemporary styles providing a challenging and functional movement experience. Her playful, creative and intuitive approach will take her students on a full mind body journey as they are inspired to explore all of what’s possible while striving for connection not perfection. She is passionate about creating an atmosphere of acceptance and non-judgement for her class and private students so they are able to learn and grow in a supportive and empowering space. Having a deep understanding of how the body moves, she is skilled at adapting her teaching to whatever best fits the needs and goals of each particular student.
As a team member for Reforming Indy since 2009, Lisa also enjoys passing down her knowledge and experience to other movement educators within the studio and the local community.
