With a lifetime love of movement, it was while studying at the Queensland Dance School of Excellence that Luisa first discovered Pilates. Inspired by the creative approach her instructors used to improve her movement patterns, she decided to delve deeper into Pilates to rehabilitate her body. However, it wasn’t until taking a break from all things movement to work in graphic design that Luisa decided to get serious with her practice. Realising her body wasn’t suited to long hours at a desk—and still carrying niggling dance and running injuries—she returned to Pilates. In 2013 she began her teacher training at Moss Pilates in London. Now a certified, Comprehensive Polestar Pilates practitioner, Luisa has also completed pre and postnatal Pilates training courses with Carolyne Anthony. The Alignment Studio clients can expect a personalised approach in Luisa’s Reformer Pilates classes. Working not only with the body in front of her, but the personality attached, she ensures each client is empowered to explore their body’s unique capabilities.
