Working with Lisa is such a joy—not only because of her cheery disposition and joyful attitude towards her work. I am someone whose body is subjected to a lot of stress and that has several weak areas, and I rely on Lisa's sensitivity and expertise to know just what to do on any given day. We do Pilates work, rehabilitative exercises, stretches, massage—Lisa tailors the session to exactly where my body is right now.
