    I brought this book about six months ago because I was told that I had very tight hips and didn’t know how to control my turnout. I was at a lost trying so many different products but nothing ever really worked. Often I would stretch out my hips so much to the point were I couldn’t walk the next day. As soon as a brought the book I started to realize how much damage I am doing to my hips. The book helped me locate where my tension was and how to release it.

    Now before every class I bring my tennis ball with me to go through a couple of exercises and then everyday do some of the strength exercises. All of my teachers have told me what an improvement I have made. Thanks Lisa!

    We are 9 and 10 year old sisters, who love ballet. Our mummy bought this manual to help us with our little practise sessions. We choose one or two exercises and mummy helps us get into the correct position. We try and do this once or twice a week, unfortunately homework and bedtime sometimes get in the way! Our grandmother watched our end of term lesson yesterday and said she was amazed at how much our posture had improved. So doing just a little focused work really helps!!

    Lisa’s programmes are like gold dust to a dancer. I used her Training Turnout, Core Strength and Front Splits Fast programmes and they totally transformed my dancing. It was after only a few months of following these programmes regularly at home that I started to dance like a professional – and then got my first company contract! Amazing!
