Lauren earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Sociology from University of California, Irvine. She played three years of NCAA Division-1 Volleyball for the Anteaters, ZOT ZOT! Lauren began her journey with Pilates in 2012. Injuries from being a student athlete left her with muscle imbalances as well as shoulder injuries amongst other tendinopathies from the wear and tear of an impact sport. She quickly learned that through the Pilates practices and philosophies she didn’t need to live in pain. She embraced Joseph Pilates’ philosophy “that a man (or woman) is as young as his (or her) spinal column.” Lauren is certified through Body Art and Science International (BASI) Pilates and has her PMA (Pilates Method Alliance) accreditation. She is passionate about helping facilitate a better quality of life for her clients as well as continuing her education in Pilates philosophies. Lauren is a firm believer that Pilates is a beneficial life long journey for everyone regardless of their age or physical abilities.
