Have you been curious to learn more about Lindsay?! Well, so have we! We caught up with Lindsay having some fun at the studio, dug a little deeper, and here's what we found...
Q: How did you become interested in Pilates?
A: I became interested in Pilates when a friend of mine asked me if I’d be willing to learn about it in order to work with her clients while she went on maternity leave. I had taken a few Pilates classes here and there, but not until I took a training course was I hooked. The science of the method was fascinating to me.
Q: What is your favorite thing about teaching Pilates?
A: Helping people feel better and discover new things about their bodies!
Q: What has been challenging for you during your Pilates journey?
A: My biggest challenge has been sharing my enthusiasm and belief in a movement methodology without overwhelming a client with too much information…how to make it fun and approachable, rather than heady and daunting. I still struggle. :-)
Q: Do you have any advice for others who may want to start their own small business?
A: You are your business, so make sure you’re committed to doing it with pride and integrity.
Q: What’s your favorite thing to do in Nashville? (besides teaching Pilates, of course)
A: Spending time with my family of five (husband, toddler and 2 fur babies). Also, eating, drinking and singing karaoke! (Lockeland Table for the first two, Lipstick lounge for the tunes)
Q: What is the last book you read?
A: Does audiobook count? What about podcast? In that case, Malcolm Gladwell’s Revisionist History.
Q: Okay, share some inside scoop about yourself! Any random skills, hobbies or interests?
A: Most people know that I love to sing and dance. I can also play the piano, the oboe, the flute and I’m an EXCELLENT whistler. In another life, I would come back as an olympic gymnast, a disco singer or an art historian.
