Certified Pilates Instructor
Laura was first introduced to Pilates through her ballet training many years ago. When she stopped dancing she continued her Pilates practice. She loved the way Pilates kept some of the same principles of dance in her life. When her teacher suggested she go through a Pilates Mat certification and begin teaching, Laura thought, “why not?” She began teaching in 2002 and instantly fell in love. When Laura went off to college in Boston she decided to continue teaching. She successfully added a Pilates Mat program to the campus recreation’s group fitness schedule, and has not stopped teaching since. From the moment she stepped in front of her first class and taught the Hundred she knew she had found her passion.
For the next seven years Laura would teach all over Boston and had made her way into Equinox where she taught with some of the industry’s finest. During this time she was also introduced to her very first barre class, and again falls in love. At this point Laura realized she should make this her real career and left her “Corporate America” job at a consulting firm to pursue her teaching. She continued her training and certification with Power Pilates and began her full time career with Equinox in their Pilates studio. Over the years Laura has also gone through a few different barre certifications and loves to incorporate that into her own fusion classes.
In 2012 Laura moved to Singapore for a job opportunity that her husband received out of business school. The next two years Laura would teach for a small boutique studio where she trained expats from all over the world. In 2014 Laura and her husband left Singapore to pursue a life on the West coast. They settled on San Francisco, where Laura went back to Equinox, this time to manage the Pilates studio while maintaining a full teaching schedule. After a short year, Laura and her husband move again, and end up in this amazing place. Laura is so excited to share her passion for Pilates with the La Jolla community.
