In 2000, Lisa started taking Pilates classes and Reformer sessions to rehabilitate a back injury. After suffering from low back pain she had to find an exercise program to ease her low back. She realized the many benefits Pilates provided for chronic injuries, stress relief and self care. Pilates proved to be an invaluable exercise for the entire body. It provided pain and stress relief as well as improved strength and posture.
In 2003, Lisa started teaching Pilates at a physiotherapy clinic, using her skills as a physiotherapist assistant and applying them to her Pilates classes. In July 2006, she opened In Balance Pilates where she continues to follow her passion for teaching others to improve their posture, core strength, and to use exercise for overall health and well being.
Lisa has completed extra certifications through Yoga Birth Method; The Fertility and Yoga Instructor course and Yoga Birth Instructor Course. The birth story of her first baby (Shay) is featured in Dorothy Guerra’s book: The Yoga Birth Method.
Lisa has a co-authored the best-selling book called Women Who Inspire — her story of resisting things in business until a concussion forced many changes and life lessons. She is part of the Inspired Impact Book Series published by Kate Butler.
