Laura is comprehensively trained in the Pilates method and certified since 2001 and has been teaching Pilates for more than 18 years. Laura teaches the original method developed by Joseph Pilates with an individualized focus to get you back to your optimal health and well-being. lauracotler.com
Her primary focus is working with people with chronic pain and injuries, and scoliosis . Laura works with injured athletes, clients who are pre and post-rehab and referred to her from physicians, physical therapists, or chiropractors, or those who are merely feeling achy and stiff and want to be able to pick up their newspaper in the morning!
Through Pilates, Laura teaches her clients how to develop a balanced body, as flexible as it is strong. This classical approach leads to better posture, a graceful, flowing gait, and a body that moves with ease and in harmony with itself. She enjoys helping her students learn to move their bodies and to do things they never believed possible!
