WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Lisa was introduced to Pilates when living in Los Angeles back in 2001. She fell in love with Pilates from the first session and later, after undergoing surgery to remove a malignant melanoma from her arm, she was amazed at the power of Pilates and her ability to rehabilitate herself and regain movement in her arm.
One year later, she decided to pursue this passion professionally and attended the PhysicalMind Institute in Los Angeles and New York. After returning home to Australia in 2006 Lisa completed further education by adding a diploma and advanced diploma through PilatesITC, to her credentials.
Lisa is one of the most vibrant people you’ll ever meet. Her passion for Pilates, movement and helping people is tangible and infectious. Her approach with clients is aimed at producing change and positive growth so that her client can nurture a strong connection to their inner-self. Attend just one class with Lisa and you’ll immediately experience the Lisa Jackson difference.
