Lisa has a Bachelor of Commerce degree, majoring in business, marketing and psychology and had a first career in IT, and sales and marketing. In 2000, Lisa did her first Pilates teacher training and transitioned to teaching Pilates in a Physio therapy practice in South Africa. Whilst working there Lisa attended a workshop with Rael Isacowitz, and she decided that training with BASI would be a definite future step. In 2004, after moving back to London and setting up a small home Pilates studio, Lisa attended the BASI CTTC and joined the family of BASI graduates! Lisa's teaching was revolutionised by this training and her passion for Pilates re-ignited! Since then Lisa has done many different workshops offered in London by various education providers, covering topics like pregnancy, spinal pathologies, teaching and cueing techniques, and many others.
Lisa combines her two passions: her love of business development and her love of Pilates and the change it makes in the lives of her clients. She has expanded her business 3 times and in 2013 hosted her first BASI course at the studio she is immensely proud of, The Pilates Clinic, in Wimbledon. Since then Lisa has joined forces with Theo Botha to take on and run the BASI UK license and loves seeing the students catch and share her passion for BASI Pilates. Lisa thoroughly enjoys the privilege of working with and mentoring students through their journey, and looks forward to offering them as much continued education as possible, sharing BASI and Raels' work with the Pilates community in the UK.
