I began in the fitness industry as a traditional aerobics leader in 1989 and then gravitated towards muscular strength and conditioning classes. I practiced yoga during these years, and incorporated the poses into my regular fitness classes. In 2006, I obtained my 200-hour level as a registered yoga teacher, and I now teach in the styles of Hatha, Yin, Therapeutic and Restorative.
In 2008, I was drawn to a Pilates class. Right away, I knew this was my next discipline to learn. I love the way it combines movement and breath with the added components of muscle strength/length and core training. So, I began my journey into Pilates instruction.
After obtaining a mat Certificate, I continued my training in 2011 with a full certification from Tracy Stafford in Pilates equipment. Through Pilates, I help my clients with functional movement and strength and show them how to enjoy the peaceful benefits of a mind, breath and body connection.
Lisa Cenedese instructs the following:
Spring Equip Level 2
Pilates Equipment classes use the Universal Reformer, the Cadillac, and the Chair. This level is appropriate for those who have some experience on the equipment, but who are still developing their core connections. Also for those who have injuries that need to be managed in a controlled way.
Spring Equip Level 1
Pilates Equipment classes use the Universal Reformer, the Cadillac, and the Chair. This level is appropriate for those who have never used the equipment before and/or who have injuries/conditions that they need to be mindful of and move at a pace that allows the body to learn a new way of moving. Please refer to our website or contact the studio for more information.
Spring Equip Level 4
Pilates Equipment classes use the Universal Reformer, the Cadillac, and the Chair. This is our most challenging level, appropriate for those who have strong experience on the equipment, as the class will have more flow, will challenge strength, endurance, flexibility, and coordination. A definite challenge for the body and mind!
