What’s up! I’m Lindsay Lopez….
If I were a cat, I would have already used at least three of my nine lives! Starting my life as a dancer and actress, I’ve strutted my stuff as a Vegas Showgirl, shook my bootie in a rap video, and ate mountains of burgers for national commercials. Along the way, I found Pilates, or rather it found me. After suffering from chronic pain in my back, someone suggested I try Pu-la-tees. Although I couldn’t pronounce it at first, it sure changed my life!
Turns out Pilates, is a man, a method, and ah-maz-ing! Not only did my back pain subside but a spark was ignited in my heart. I had found my second passion and it was PILATES!!! I studied, certified, and then studied some more. I worked in plenty of studios with plenty of instructors and found my niche in the classical New York method. It was then that I discovered that I was genuinely exceptional at something other than dancing…go figure!
“Ever since I’ve been under Lindsay’s gentle but no-nonsense care I feel like I walk straighter, feel taller, and more connected with my body. Also, she laughs at my jokes…especially the raunchy ones!”
~Casey Nicolaw, Director/Choreographer Book of Mormon
Years later, a job on the Broadway stage brought me from Los Angeles to New York. While I fostered my love for performing, I still retained my infatuation with Pilates. As luck would have it, when I decided to retire, I had the good fortune of taking over a Pilates studio right in the heart of Manhattan. FORM Pilates Union Square was born.
“…discovering what Pilates does for the body is definitely a eureka moment; and working with Lindsay is an epiphany. I always feel better, taller, longer, stronger after a session with Lindsay. I know I am my best physical self with her as my guide. ”
~Suttirat Larlab, Costume Designer for Slumdog Millionaire
Now, I share my passion for entrepreneurship with other fitness and wellness professionals, by helping them build their businesses. I coach, write, and speak on the power of following your heart.
“Working with Lindsay (business coaching) is very empowering and keeping me on track. Totally worth it!” ~Sandi Vilacoba, Owner of The Pilates Project
