Lisa’s Immersion Program offers a unique opportunity for extensive training directly with Lisa, aimed at gaining a deeper understanding into the assessment and analysis of movement – focused around the pelvis, hips and lumbar spine – and it’s application to programming and teaching within the Pilates environment.

Over a twelve month period participants will learn to further develop their assessment and programming skills through practical analysis of posture and its effect on movement. This will then be applied to teaching movement with a focus towards gaining a deeper connection to and understanding of the foundational work that precedes much of the Pilates repertoire.   This learning will then be continued in to the layering and building of quality Pilates-based programs to be easily taught and utilised in all Pilates studios.

Students will learn to confidently program and teach more holistically, offering modifications and variations where needed, based on a deeper biomechanical understanding of the body and movement applications.

This will not only empower the teacher to feel more confident in their ability to truly help their individual clients but is also aimed at empowering clients toward a better understanding of how their own bodies move and what they need to do to move well.

Participants will gain a deep connection to the principles of Lisa’s work through hands-on training, practical application, workbooks, video library access and small group zoom mentoring sessions.
