Lesson Details

Swimming

Levels Taught:
Beginner
I grew up in Florida where you were never not in a pool or shy of using double negatives.

Anyways, I have lots of experience working with children through nannying and coaching. I recently trained for a film where I had to perfect the butterfly technique and had the pleasure of training with an Olympic swimmer and the swim coach at UCLA(just once but still cool).

*Under 3 are Mommy and Me guided lessons where we address pool safety, play fun games to get your child comfortable in the water, and practice floating & kicking.

For adults swimming is a wonderful alternative to the more taxing weight bearing exercises typically engaged in. Great for people with injuries or physical limitations.

Great for exercise during pregnancy.

2015

Hey there! My name is Lindsay. I truly enjoy teaching everything in the realm of physical activity. I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. I studied under a Russian Prima ballerina. I played soccer. I swam. My lifestyle at a young age has reflected in my work as an adult. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! If I have one goal in my professional life it would be to inspire active living in today's youth. I completed my 450 hour pilates certification which compliments my teachings in every field due to the anatomical approach. Currently I work as a dance teacher, pilates instructor, yoga teacher and flexibility coach. My passion for movement will inspire you to achieve your goals. I love to make any positive difference to a client: in their day, in their body, in their outlook. I’m an eager student, so I’m constantly teaching new stuff I’ve recently learned. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

I am enthusiastic about teaching online lessons as well. I find that online training works amazingly well, and is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules.

For Dance - Lindsay teaches ballet, social club, and basic hip hop and tap

Lindsay was punctual and efficient with my time. The sequence felt perfectly suited. Nicely intuitive, even to the volume of voice at an early hour!

Lindsay is wonderful. She really takes her time to understand what the client both wants out of their workout and needs out of their workout. I love how she always mixes it up and is not afraid to challenge me. Also she’s great in both private sessions and group sessions! Thanks Lindsay!

Lindsay put together mommy and me ballet lessons for my 2 year old and I. We looked forward to our lessons and she kept my daughter engaged and having fun the entire time. Over the course of a year, not only did we have a lot of fun doing ballet together, she actually learned a few basic steps and is comfortable with the rhythm of warming up, dancing, then cooling down. Having Lindsay live online was much better than a video because she interacted with Skye and could adjust the lesson to keep her involved. I enjoyed dancing with my daughter and getting a little stretch and workout in each time as well.

I traditionally strength train and consistently utilize HiiT training so as you could imagine I've developed some imbalances in my body. Thanks to Lindsay she was able to recognize this and help out tremendously in the flexibility and core aspects of my training. I'm stronger than I've ever been and my ROM Has increased significantly. I strongly recommend using her expertise and training in this area.

I'm new to pilates so I can easily get confused. Not with Lindsay! She is so specific with the movements, I know exactly what to do next! Not only that, but how she articulates which muscles to work and how to make the most out every single exercise. Guaranteed to burn out your muscles, but then with her stretches, you leave feeling great. How a teacher speaks has always been a deal breaker for me. Lindsay's voice and her demeanor is so pleasant, encouraging, and fun! Also, her body is GOALS! I will follow her to whatever studio she goes to! Thanks Lindsay!

My daughter wanted me to find her a flexibility coach to help her with dance. Because we live in a rural community, this type of instruction is not available. I did an online search and was very fortunate to connect with Take Lessons and Lindsey. She takes a 30 minute lesson twice a week and has seen considerable improvement in her flexibility. Lindsey is not only a great teacher but a great person. Her and my daughter have developed a personal relationship. Lindsey is very knowledgeable, encouraging, and kind. She has been taking Lessons from Lindsey for 11 months, and we plan to continue with classes because of the excellent instruction she has received.

This was my first online lesson with Lindsay. I am a 64 year old woman who wants to learn ballet and in doing so become more flexible, agile and have better balance. Lindsay was very knowledgable, patient, and friendly. I felt that I was receiving real instruction and that we will make a good team together. Even though this was via FaceTime, I truly felt I had a one to one learning experience. Thank you, Linsday!

She's very flexible and very knowledgeable about different types of stretches for your body. She is helping me work on my splits and straddle. I usually can get a front left leg split after an hour's session. I highly recommend her for flexibility training.

Lindsay is very in tune with the needs of those she trains. She modifies the exercises to adjust for injuries but makes sure you are still challenged.

Lindsay is a remarkable teacher/trainer. She helped me to be flexible and feel at peace with my body. I'm now able to touch my toes, and it feels great. If you want to feel comfortable and get big improvement than Lindsay is a great pick for you. You won't regret it.

Lindsey is awesome, the best instructor I've worked with thus far, truly a pleasure. I am already seeing processing after 3 months of lessons and would not change a thing! I would highly recommend her to everyone who has a passion to learn dance.
