When your body talks, you're forced to listen
Your body has a way of getting your attention and letting you know all is not working well.
For some it's the nagging back ache or twingy hip, for others it's the knee that gets crabby when you take the stairs. Pelvic pain, diastasis recti and sneeze pee are other common signs telling you all is not well with your alignment and movement habits.
It makes sense to you that how you move and use your body can contribute to your symptoms, but you're not sure where to begin to fix things.
You're intrigued and you want to learn how to help yourself but you run into overwhelm and aren't sure how to get started.
You don't have time to spend hours wading through blog posts, listening to podcasts and reading book after book to figure out where to get started when it comes to helping your body feel better through alignment.
You're not sure which exercises will be the most helpful, which ones will be the best use of your limited time. You worry that you aren't doing them right.
You want someone to synthesize it for you, to put the essentials together so you can get started and reap the benefits of alignment without the overwhelm. You'd like a guide along the way, someone to offer you feedback, support and reassurance.
Learn the fundamentals
When it comes to fixing your body by changing your alignment, there are certain fundamental concepts and exercises that are key no matter what symptoms you're experiencing. Learn to do those well and you'll put the pieces in place to improve a variety of alignment ailments.
There are no spot fixes
In this program, you'll learn a variety of exercises designed to support the function of your whole body.
Why bother with the whole body when you have just a knee (core, hips, back, pelvis, etc.) problem? Because there is no part of your body that is an island unto itself. Everything is interconnected and the function of your knees (core, hips, back, pelvis, etc.) depends on every other part of your body doing its job well.
During this program, you'll be guided step-by-step through a series of exercises that will begin to bridge the strength, stability and mobility "gaps" that contribute to your symptoms. You will:
- learn essential exercises for foot, knee, hip and pelvis health
- lay the foundation for true core strength
- begin to undo the movement and alignment habits that wreak havoc on your body
- develop skills to help you stay strong and mobile throughout your life
- receive support and feedback throughout
No more floundering on your own. You'll have support and structure to guide you along the way.
You'll get easy-to-implement, bite-sized nuggets of information condensed down to the essentials so you can get started on your alignment journey without the overwhelm.
Hi, I'm Lisa Gillispie. I developed Just One Thing: Next Steps because I've seen too many people miss out on the relief that whole body alignment can offer when they don't know where to get started.
Your strength, mobility and stability gaps, along with your daily habits, are roadblocks that set you up for the symptoms you're experiencing - that achy back, twingy hip, knees that don't like the stairs, sneeze pee and more.
I can show you simple steps to bridge your gaps and change the way you move so you get relief from your symptoms.
My years of dance training and teaching gave me a keen eye for noticing people's movement and alignment habits. I've honed this further in my bodywork practice of 20 years and have completed specialized studies in Restorative Exercise™, a biomechanical approach to the function and health of the body. In 2014 I began Somatic Experiencing training to address the impact of trauma on the body. All of this experience informs the program I've created for you.
People who take this course want relief from common body complaints. They want to learn how to help themselves so they can feel good in their body. They want a starting point for how to shift their alignment and movement habits. If these are the things you want, Just One Thing Next Steps is for you.

HOW IT WORKS:
We'll be using an online classroom platform called Ruzuku. Once the class begins, every week, for a total of 4 weeks, you’ll get access to the next week’s series of video alignment lessons. During the week, you'll work through the videos at your convenience. You will continue to have ongoing access to all material after the 4 weeks are over.
Inside the Ruzuku classroom, you’ll be able to view all the videos and ask any questions that come up for you during the course. You get the best of both worlds – the freedom and independence to move through the material on your own, and my support, feedback and suggestions should the need arise.
The Ruzuku classroom is extremely easy to use, even for the technically challenged. They also have a fabulous customer support team if any technical challenges arise.
It's time to move better so you can get the relief you seek.
