A former competitive swimmer, Laura discovered yoga in her twenties and developed a practice that she kept up through moves across the country, from Chicago to Oregon and now to Laguna Niguel, where she, her husband, and son have lived for almost ten years.
Intrigued by Pilates’ combination of strength training and stretching using the Reformer, Laura tried a Pilates class and was immediately hooked. Impressed by the strength and flexibility of longtime students, she was inspired to make Pilates a bigger part of her own workout routine. When a respected instructor suggested she become a teacher herself, Laura jumped at the opportunity to learn how to teach from instructors she admired at Pure Pilates and went through the Pure Pilates Certification Program in 2018.
Laura is also a writer and owns and operates a jewelry business specializing in literature-inspired jewelry.
