Back Pain Testimonials

Back pain is a specialty of mine. Here’s how I helped my clients.

Rahul Jacob

Lynda Lippin is quite simply the best Pilates teacher I’ve had and I have had a few… I am taking her Pilates Audios and exercises with me to Bangalore where I will be for a month and then China. Thank you, Lynda for your extraordinarily quick diagnosis of my problems and for your big hearted … Read more

David Richman

I had that great fortune of finding my way to Lynda several months after my third back operation. I was terribly deconditioned and in desperate need of building a sold foundation that would allow me to recover enough strength to begin to recover what I had lost so many years earlier because of the problems … Read more

Natalie Livingstone

Lynda is the only personal trainer I have worked with who combines hard-core cardio, super-toning but not bulking weight circuits, and expert pilates. Her results speak for themselves – after a week with Lynda I feel energized, stronger, back-pain free and ultra-lean. I always look forward to training with this amazing woman!

Christine Markow, Ph.D.

I can attest even with my T12-L1 incomplete spinal cord injury – I was in the best shape of my life (and the smallest size 2) when working with Lynda 2x a week in private sessions. Lynda has a very special talent to foresee what Pilates move to do next in the set to stretch … Read more

Lynda, you’re amazing! The most educational yet fun workouts, quick results, and still no back pain thanks to you.

Donna Karan

Working with Lynda, I can’t tell you how much she has helped me with my bad back. Her pilates and fitness program compliments my yoga practice. No matter how crooked I wake up in the morning her affect is remarkable, Lynda has become a must on my list.

Andy Sherwood

I recently took Lynda’s diastasis / hernia workshop. For the first time in ten years of years of teaching Pilates, I finally feel confident to take on a diastasis client. We learned how to take a client through their first visit and got a comprehensive teaching of what things to focus on and what to … Read more

I feel the importance of breathing exercises in Pilates is often overlooked! I appreciated that breath was a great focus. Excited for Lynda’s next workshop!

Julie Satow

Lynda has made all the difference between my having surgery and my being able to avoid it. In one year, she has decreased my diastasis by half- from four fingers to two. I have never looked better. My leg muscles have become longer and leaner and I love it! She also gave me the confidence … Read more

The Hernia and Diastasis Recti workshop was both informative and fun. I particularly enjoyed the detail focused on the breathing and the importance of using the breath to stabilize. This, I believe, is so integral to the students – to feel the difference between stress placed on abs when not fully breathing and then to … Read more

Lynda Lippin’s Hernia and Diastasis workshop should be a requirement for any Pilates certification program, basic or comprehensive. These are common problems among women and even men. The integration of the breathe and movement and how it affects intra abdominal pressure is necessary knowledge for every pilates instructor. Lynda is knowledgeable and approachable, sharing what … Read more

This, I believe, is so integral to the students – to feel the difference between stress placed on abs when not fully breathing and then to implement exercise with thoughtful breath. I would indeed attend another workshop and I found Lynda to be not only approachable and lovely, but willing to share her knowledge! Thank you.

With that knowledge I can now integrate it into the system of Pilates and to my clients needs. I almost think you could do a part 1 and a part 2 in this workshop because there is so much information to talk about. You were great Lynda! I would definitely take another workshop from you and your knowledge from experience and understanding of the human body is priceless!

Andy Sherwood

I recently took Lynda’s diastasis / hernia workshop. For the first time in ten years of years of teaching Pilates, I finally feel confident to take on a diastasis client. We learned how to take a client through their first visit and got a comprehensive teaching of what things to focus on and what to avoid.

If the workshop material is not delivered in a way that’s interesting, hands on, and fun, then it is much harder to focus and retain. This is not a problem with Lynda , as she is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and fun!

I have also been thoroughly enjoying my private sessions with Lynda as I work through reconnecting to my abdominals after abdominal surgery. As an instructor myself, it can be extremely discouraging to face challenge in my own core.

Lynda moves me in a fun, flowing, and deep way. She is encouraging throughout the session even when you are being corrected and challenged. Highly recommend a one on one to get the full Lynda Lippin experience.

Lynda rules.  It’s that simple.  Through my sessions with Lynda, I have seen my personal and private/group Pilates practice improve.  And, as a result of attending Lynda’s marketing workshops (over a year ago), I was able to have the courage and know-how to make significant business/professional changes that brought in more positivity, and income.
