Thinking of taking the Rhythm Pilates course?
See what Pia had to say about her experience!
Can you tell us about Rhythm Pilates from a participant’s perspective?
My experience with Rhythm Pilates was great! The atmosphere that Lisa provided was full of knowledge and encouragement. She took the time to go over every detail within the choreographies, and after the workshop, I gained a full new concept to incorporate in my teaching approach.
Why did you decide to take the RP training?
I took the training because I think it will allow me to reach a bigger audience of new client, and also add to my profile as a teacher. I think that music makes everything more fun. The first time a saw a Rhythm Pilates class, I knew immediately that I wanted to add this new modality to my teaching approach.
What was your favorite part of the program?
My favorite part of the program was/is having Lisa available as a resource. She is always there to give her support, not only for Rhythm Pilates but also for the entire Pilates community. I’m not a dancer, but Lisa mixed dance, yoga and Pilates in a way that even a person with no dance background can easily understand the movements and the choreography. She made the process enjoyable.
Would you encourage others to take the program?
Absolutely! Rhythm Pilates is a great program because it mixes three movement modalities, making it appeal to a bigger audience. Also, RP is a fantastic addition to your teaching (and it’s fun!) Rhythm Pilates mixes yoga, dance and Pilates in a way that benefits your body, your clients and your class offerings.
Do you currently teach RP? If so, when & where?
I’m not teaching yet, but I do see myself teaching Rhythm Pilates in the Huntington Beach and Seal Beach area in the future.

It took her five years of working in the corporate business world before she realized that she wanted to help people in different and more meaningful ways. She is currently attending Orange Coast College for her Pilates certification, and is also working on attaining her Rhythm Pilates certification.
