"Laura is committed to the idea that despite our aches and concerns, we can live a full and joyful life.”

A former dancer, Southern methodist University Graduate and die hard lover of movement and problem solving, Laura is obsessed with learning how the body works and moves as a connected system. She loves that the head bone is connected to the foot bone (no, not a typo - the head bone really IS connected to the foot bone - ask her all about it).
Laura's lifelong journey with scoliosis propelled her into a deeper relationship with her body and a fervent perusal of understanding how the body works. She was motivated by her own desire to continue living fully as she ages, despite her physical limitations. Now, she helps her clients do the same. Movement is life!
Laura began her career in Pilates with a certification from Romana's Pilates in 2013. From there, she taught in Pilates studios all over New York City and eventually landed at Pilates on 66. The educational, knowledge-thirsty environment at Pilates on 66 lead her to even more continuing education, first with a certification in Feet-ness, a fitness method that brings attention to your feet as a vital missing link in your total body workout.
Laura is currently on her way to a certification in ELDOA™, a method that makes space in your spine to ease pain and improve optimal functioning of the body. This method puts the power back into the hands of the mover with the guiding philosophy: " you are your own best (physical) therapist". Laura is presently an ELDOA™ student practitioner.
With these combined learnings and a thirst for more, Laura is set on providing her clients with tools that will empower them to make the changes in their bodies that they are looking for to keep moving in a life they love.
Laura is a nerd.
Seriously. She's invested her whole self into learning about the body so you can benefit from her years of interdisciplinary knowledge. And the great news? She's a nerd for life, constantly learning the latest from the most intelligent and innovative minds working in the mind-body space.

It’s just like they told us in kindergarten - we are each unique, as are our bodies. We each come from a unique background physically, professionally, mentally and emotionally - therefore, each of our bodies has its own story to tell. I don’t believe in “one size fits all” for the body, which is why I work so closely with my clients to observe how they move, understand their lifestyle, and facilitate movement that will support them in aligning and strengthening their bodies so they can live fully embodied. I offer various commitment levels so there’s something for everybody. The work we do together is:
No, this is not the kind of work you can mindlessly do while watching TV. This work requires us to be fully present in the body to really feel and understand what’s happening and what it needs to feel its best. I'm here to be your guide into your physical self so that you can move through life joyfully.
