YogalatesTM was founded by Louise Solomon, and she has been practicing yoga for over 25 years. Louise became the first person to blend Yoga & Pilates and today is a recognised leader in holistic mind and body health and fitness. Since taking her method around the globe she discovered a gap in the exercise /preventative health care market. Over the past 18 years her work has culminated in developing a government accredited course training others to teach the YogalatesTM method to the general public.
Lisa has always been interested in movement in its many forms. In her younger years she spent most of her life as a dancer working professionally in Australia and abroad. She discovered Yoga more than 20 years ago when she came across classes held at a London Dance School, she started to integrate the discipline of Yoga into her dance training and began assisting her Yoga teacher. On her return to Australia she continued her Yogic studies and began to teach some Yoga classes casually.
It was 17 years after her yoga journey had begun that a knee injury brought Lisa to the Yogalates method. So effective was her rehabilitation that Lisa chose to train in and begin teaching the Solomon Yogalates Method fulltime. She is currently a senior trainer/tutor (since 2003) on the Yogalates teacher training program.
