I first discovered Pilates after having my third son in four and a half years. I was discouraged that I was never going to get back in shape, let alone ever feel that I had a single muscle in my core! Pilates changed all of that for me. It has changed my body, my mind, and my entire regard to health and fitness. I had finally discovered a form of exercise that I loved and was excited to do every day if I could. In a short amount of time of personally practicing Pilates I knew I wanted to train and become certified to teach and help others so they too could learn and experience the benefits of doing Pilates. I have had the pleasure of working with people of all ages, healthy, injured, recovering, and born with lifetime limitations. The gratification it has given me to help so many people in various ways by teaching and training them in Pilates is enormous. It truly is an art and one that is so easy to fall in love with. Laura completed her 500 hour training with Troy McCarty, who personally trained under original students of Joe Pilates. Her training is through Balanced Body University and she has been teaching for over 10 years in the Chagrin Falls area.
