Lisa Smith

Lisa’s love of Pilates, and her 10 years of personal Pilates practice lead her to pursue her Instructor Qualification through Hearts and Bones Pilates (a Pilates Method Alliance certified instructor training program). She is a Hearts & Bones Trainee Reformer Pilates Practitioner. Lisa is very excited to have been offered the opportunity to join the Back In Motion team and have a career founded in inspiring and educating movement, alignment and body awareness.

Her varied professional background and educational foundation combine to give her a unique approach to Pilates. Her experience in education and instruction and knowledge of the human body complement and enhance her abilities as a Pilates Instructor. She is excited to continue her journey with Pilates and share her passion with her clients. Her recent Pilates experience includes instructing mat, reformer and prenatal Pilates.

Lisa graduated from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, in 2012 with a Bachelor of science in Food, Nutrition and Health with a major in Dietetics. She graduated as a Dietitian after completing her one year internship.  She practiced as a Dietitian in Canada for several years in outpatient nutritional counselling setting in diabetes and chronic disease, weight management, gastrointestinal disorders and disordered eating.  Alongside her relocation to Dunedin, Lisa certified as a First Aid Instructor and instructed First Aid courses.

Having grown up in northern British Columbia, Lisa loves to be active in the outdoors. When she’s not in the studio practicing Pilates, she enjoys running, hiking and cycling. Although less frequent these days, she loves to get out her winter gear and go for a downhill or cross-country ski!
