Happy Hour, Happy Place, Happy Life…

My Pilates experience started in 2012 when my daughter’s dance teacher suggested Pilates as a way for her to get a stronger core to help in her technique.  I was suffering from a lower back disc herniation and had some steroid injections that were just not helping at all.  I decided my core could probably stand to be strengthened too.  Laura was so welcoming and was able to teach to both of us based on our individual flexibility and abilities while allowing us to both gain the strength we needed.  My daughter was able to do her moves with confidence and grace and I was pain free for the first time in years.  I became addicted.  I started taking two to three classes a week.  It was not enough!!

Laura saw that I was absorbing the work of Joseph Pilates and learning how it can improve our lives in so many ways and she asked me to consider becoming an instructor.  At first I was not sure I could do it.  I have three very active teenage children and a full time career but in the end decided that I love the social aspect of Pilates so much and it was time to do something not only for myself for now, but for my future as well, and to help others reap the benefits that only Pilates can offer.

I have enjoyed my experience learning each of the classic exercises in depth and sharing that knowledge with others.  I love seeing the look of satisfaction on a client’s face when they can do an exercise that they could not previously do.  Pilates is so much about movement in our everyday lives it helps us to maintain a healthy life style at any stage.

Studio L2 Pilates Training Center is my happy place.  Whether I am in class myself, practicing some of my exercises with the other instructors, or teaching a class or private lesson I love being at this studio.  I want to share that with others.  Find your Happy Hour and join me at Studio L2 Pilates Training Center.
