Meet Lisa

June 05, 2018

We have had the pleasure of shooting truly beautiful & inspiring women for our website and instagram content. And when we say they are beautiful, they are beautiful inside and out. We work with a lot of models, local instructors and awesome women who all contribute to the authenticity of our content. We are here to celebrate your beauty, inspire movement and style and these ladies help us achieve these pretty lofty goals. We are kicking off a series where you can get to know these lovely women and we are kicking it all off with LISA, Owner of Pirate Pilates San Francisco:

We asked Lisa: 

KORE: When did you start teaching?
LISA: In 2007
KORE: Why do you teach?
LISA: I fell in love with Pilates, and it has changed my body and form more than anything else I’ve tried.  I teach so I can share this and be there to watch clients share the same moments and changes I live for! No matter what the limitations, there are always ways to continue to challenge anyone … no matter if it’s rehabbing an injury, or training an athlete!  I love the versatility of Pilates movements.
KORE: How do we sweat with you?
LISA: I teach Monday-Friday from 630A until around 12P.  I will make you walk the plank at Pirate Pilates!  
KORE:  What is your fave move right now?
LISA: I love playing with new moves in the well behind the carriage.  It takes ab work to a whole new level!
KORE: Coffe or juice?
LISA: Coffee!  I’m an early riser and need to get my motor running so I can motivate clients before the sun comes up  :)
KORE: Fave place for a post work out snack?
LISA:  I’m usually starving and ready for a huge salad after a workout … but if I’m low on time I can always find something great in the hood!  Lite Bite smoothies, or an Urban Remedy snack are go to’s!
KORE: Fit-Fast trend you love RN?
LISA: High waist pants are my current love.  I like the way they flow and help any look feel smoother and seamless.
KORE: Any new diet/nutrition trends you love?
LISA: No diet trends for this girl … I’m all about the balance!  A little salad … a little wine … lots of happiness and movement!
KORE: Any diet trends you can live without?
LISA: I think diet trends should die!  There’s no quick fixes … it’s a lifestyle choice to be your best self.
 
Pretty obvious why we love her, right? Follow Lisa @Lisabeelates for more inspiration.
