Personalized Pilates Instruction and Buff Bones® Classes in West Los Angeles
Lisa Schechter offers private and duo Pilates sessions. A session is tailored to your individual fitness goals, strengths and weaknesses. Exercises are performed on the mat and Pilates equipment, including the reformer. Sessions last 55 minutes.
Pilates exercises help develop good posture and alignment, stability, balance, strength, flexibility, and flowing movement. Strength and flexibility of abdominal and back muscles are central to a Pilates program. Pilates integrates the mind and body, teaching mental focus and control and coordination. Pilates promotes both physical and mental rejuvenation.
In her teaching, Lisa uses the 3Core Connections®
Embodied Perspective. This perspective, developed by
Pilates and movement expert Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle,
teaches us that moving with whole body coordination
helps us move more efficiently and with decreased tension.
We become aware of how our breathing can support us. We sense our relationships to gravity and space and explore how these relationships support our movement too. We learn to appreciate the body’s own intelligence. Our movement becomes energizing and joyful.
Pilates sessions take place Goodman Physical Therapy in West Los Angeles.
Lisa is a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher.
