FABS Course - Move it or Lose it certification in the FABS Training Programme

 

After her initial training with Future Fit 15 years ago, Lisa started her fitness career in Military gyms abroad, both in Cyprus and Belguim before heading back to the UK 5 years ago. She settled in Warsash and set up her company, The Better Body Club. Lisa believes that fitness should be for everyone regardless of their injuries, age or class preference and has worked to create a timetable that reflects this. Although Lisa enjoys teaching a wide variety of classes she has a particular love of dance, pilates and music. Her spare time is taken up with even more physical activity walking her 3 dogs and taking her 2 teenage daughters out on their horses.

Yoga Alliance 200hr RYT.

 

Millie is a fully qualified teacher, accredited with the internationally renowned Yoga Alliance. With a wealth of experience practicing yoga, and having studied deeply the foundations of yoga and its philosophy in India with the Ashiyana Yoga School, she now shares an authentic Hatha-Vinyasa practice.

 

Millie’s classes are gentle, and nurturing; suitable for all abilities and bodies. With a highly mindful approach, they are guaranteed to leave you feeling grounded, balanced, and relaxed.

 

Hatha is the yoga of force, or energy, and merges the different practices of yoga; Pranayama (breathing exercises), Meditation, Cleansing Techniques, and Asana (posture). Alongside this, Millie’s musical and dance backgrounds have influenced a style of practice that is fluid, rhythmic, and thus may be viewed as a kind of moving meditation. Her classes encourage a connection with the body on a deeply intimate level, creating a gateway to intuitive and peaceful living.
