The crew at McCall Pilates Studio really know what they're doing. I am a long time yoga instructor with a strong commitment to body awareness being the foundation to long term sustainable physical fitness and health. I am delighted to find this studio not only confirming that but taking me deeper in my understanding. Kudos!
Lisa Marie has been teaching Pilates and Personal Training for over 14 years. She started practicing Pilates due to numerous injuries from years of training, and a major ski accident in 1998.
She realized years of training without proper movement and her past injury lead to her chronic lower back and neck pain. Her first Pilates session with Steve O’Neil at the Pilates Studio in Salida, Colorado taught her that she was not breathing correctly but holding so much tension in her neck due to past injuries and chronic allergies.
After just a few private sessions, she knew that Pilates was her way to find relief and to move in an efficient, and graceful way. That day she realized, she needed to learn but also share the Pilates method to all.
Lisa Marie is a Balanced Body Master Trainer, she can train aspiring instructors on all apparatus and pilates equipment.
