Many of our instructors have decades of experience and tremendous knowledge to help you recover from injury, correct negative movement pathologies, improve posture, alleviate stress, increase muscle tone and flexibility, and help you feel better in your body.

"Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. Our interpretation of physical fitness is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind fully capable of naturally, easily, and satisfactorily performing our many and varied daily tasks with spontaneous zest and pleasure."

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.
