Lisa Longhurst was born in 1975 in the UK and growing up was always athletic and interested in sports playing Lacrosse for the U18’s for Kent.  Years of playing team sport left a few injuries including compartment syndrome (shin splints) and damage to the knees.  Pilates has meant that she has been able to continue with everything she loves including running and cycling and two years ago she completed an olympic triathlon in Lisbon.

Lisa started practicing pilates herself in 2001 whilst working and living in Santa Barbara, California, USA.  She was taught by owner and founder of Pilates Anytime and in her own practice was inspired to train as a teacher.  When returning to the UK Lisa continued her training with Body Arts and Science International (BASI) at the Royal Academy of Dance, London in 2005.   Since then she has explored different pilates practices particularly trying to gain insight into the more “classical” repertoire.  Recently she has reconnected with BASI and been back to HQ in Newport Beach to take part in the Mentor program and is currently training to become a faculty member.

When Lisa isn’t working she is spending time with her family enjoying an outdoor lifestyle in Burgau, Portugal.
