Laura is the first instructor I have ever had that has made me actually enjoy and want to practice Pilates. She made me feel comfortable approaching this form in my body and didn't view it as a hindrance to be overcome or altered. She was always encouraging, patient and helpful. I deeply appreciate having taken this class from her.
-Student, Pilates Reformer I, The Ohio State University
Laura is a thoughtful and thorough Pilates teacher who keeps her energy up even through zoom. She's able to navigate mixed level classes that include pre-professional/professional dancers with older adults.
