Lisa Lindsay

Hara Pilates Instructor
-Diploma of Pilates Movement Therapy

Nine years ago, I was introduced to Suzanne McCarty to address my poor posture and I discovered a movement therapy that became addictive due to the amazing results I experienced firsthand ­- not only with my posture but strength, flexibility and overall happiness!
I continued my Pilates practice throughout two pregnancies and following each birth. This gave me strength and soothed my weary body and mind.
In 2016 I successfully completed a Diploma of Pilates Movement Therapy, with Carla Mullins, a teacher trainer for the Australian Pilates Method Association and owner of Body Organics.

Since then, I have been teaching at Hara Beyond Movement Studio alongside my wonderful colleagues and have enjoyed meeting and teaching many wonderful clients.

My name is Trudy McIntosh and I’m a health and fitness professional. Over my career, I’ve been an Olympic gymnast, an Aerial Skier & a Cirque du Soleil artist. These incredible careers have taught me so much about discipline, perseverance and ultimately self awareness.
With over 15 years focused on sport and movement, it is no surprise that I have sustained many injuries. Ranging from impact and trauma through to general wear and tear; more recently I’ve dealt with my body growing older and not being as supple as it use to be. In a search for ways to recover and excel, I’ve been drawn towards studying and understanding the human body and I always seek out new and innovative ways to get the most out of myself.
During my gymnastics career from age 5 to 16 years I was taught the discipline of Pilates, and I was well aware of it's benefits of using the human body to it's greatest advantage. Making the most of it strengths, counteracting its weaknesses, and correcting its imbalances.

In my early 20s I was introduced to yoga. At the time, the discomfort I experienced daily was not just the result of physical pain, but from being so disconnected in my mind as well. While I have always been aware of the deep connection between the mind and body, what I had not yet discovered at the time was the power that mindfulness could unleash.

I have since been on an incredible journey, one that has led me to practice, learn and now teach yoga and pilates. Through all my experiences and education, I know that yoga and pilates is the most sustainable form of exercise for the body, mind and soul. It has helped me to make better life choices, connect with the world around me, as well as myself and more importantly to grow healthy and strong in the process.

Buff Bones® Level 1

Buff Bones® Level 1 is a general level, suitable for beginners.We recommend that you have prior Pilates  experience to taking this class and recommend the Pilates Beginners 5 week course if you are a beginner. If you have an injury, pregnant or a health concern we highly recommend that you take either an initial consultation and we also offer Pilates studio sessions & Pilates Therapeutics classes at our studio.

Buff Bones® is a medically-endorsed workout that combines Pilates, functional movement, strength training, and therapeutic exercise with bone-strengthening and balance techniques to optimise the health and safety of your bones.

The workout follows a research-supported design of specifically sequenced exercises, making it an entire system of bone and joint health, rather than just a set of exercises. Toning your arms, hips, back and abs, the Buff Bones® system also improves posture, is adaptable to varying levels, and is even safe for those with Osteoporosis, Osteopenia and some spinal conditions(to be determined).

Developed in the United States by Rebekah Rotstein, a recognised expert in Pilates and exercise for Osteoporosis, this dynamic one-hour class is enjoyable and challenging for people of all ages and levels.
