The mindset for this class is a space of going within our bodies and noticing. We move mindfully from there. This is where we explore the body, listen to how it feels and enjoy new ways of how to move it.
This class is a must to amplify your dancing, your fitness, your posture, your core, your life. You will leave this class taller, longer, lighter and feeling more open, centered and amazingly free in your skin.

I started taking Lisa's Mindful Core class, to help in building "muscle memory" for core alignment and strength in my (newfound) everyday life and activities, primarily in front of a screen. As a result, I've discovered that I'm naturally aligning myself when at my desk, walking the dog and happily/most notably in dance class (primarily a tapper, due to hip issues)! I have "caught" myself correcting my posture and positions "automatically" which has considerably decreased pain and increased range of motion. I can't thank Lisa enough! - Martha L.
The Mindful Core class challenges me to focus on incorporating the strength and balance that is so important in dance. With her broad background in pilates, dance and other disciplines, Lisa is able to quickly define sets of exercises to address each area that we want to work on, as well as always including work on core and posture to help us achieve strength and balance. It's a very engaging hour and has helped my body stability in Lisa's jazz and lyrical dance classes as well as in my everyday life. -Mara Rocaforte
