Owner and Director
Originally from Pennsylvania, Laura received her Pilates certification in all apparatus from The PhysicalMind Institute in 1998. Mentored by the nationally renowned Jillian Hessel of The Well-Tempered Workout, she expanded her expertise in the rehabilitative effects of Pilates by teaching under a physical therapist. She went on to work for various teachers in the Los Angeles area, beginning to develop her own unique teaching style.
Laura has melded classic Pilates exercises with hands-on cueing and assisted stretching to create a workout that is engaging and enjoyable, that stretches and sculpts with every movement. Muscles become strong, lean and flexible, while posture, coordination, energy and stamina dramatically improve. Most importantly, this work connects your body to your breath to your mind, helping to create a clear sense of center.
Laura's clientele includes celebrities as well as writers, directors, doctors and executives. Laura opened Pilates by the Park to create a studio with exceptional teachers working on state-of-the-art equipment in a beautiful, warm environment. Laura currently resides in Valley Village with her husband and 6-year-old daughter.
