Finally a fitness class for all capabilities
I decided to take up Lisa's Pilates when my fitness level was at its lowest, so I was delighted to be welcomed by a friendly instructor and an encouraging group of people with a range of capabilities - from beginners to experts.
The teacher, Lisa, has been a qualified Pilates instructor for 14 years and a professional fitness instructor for 23 years. Having trained in the UK and emigrated only two years ago, these Brisbane based classes have only recently opened, attracting a group of new faces to meet for VERY reasonable rates.
Lisa's Pilates classes work on strengthening your core, the overall limbering of your body and assist people who suffer with back problems. Lisa is regularly updating her Pilates knowledge and she is happy to answer any questions you have throughout the class. With her simple exercise instructions, I gradually began to feel connected to each muscle in my body whilst learning how to position and hold myself correctly throughout everyday life.
No one was too old, too unfit or too weak to join in (you know all of the excuses). That is the beauty of these classes; you can make them as easy or as hard as you want to. Bring your partner, bring your mum, bring your daughter; everyone is equally welcome.
I have been wanting to do Pilates for a long time, it would be great if Lisas Pilates could come to The Gap area, we have some here already but are too expensive for myself and other people, please try and come to The Gap area !!!
I absolutely loved Lisa's classes when she taught in a yoga studio in Brisbane and totally recommend her classes. She is a great instructor who knows the right muscles to work and always makes you do the toughest things with a smile on her face. The smiling assassin was her nickname. Best wishes to you Lisa. :)
