Here’s what some of Laura’s clients have to say:
"I fell in love with the Pilates reformer at Laura’s studio. The workouts are dynamic, flowing, sweaty, and fun. Laura’s studio has been a big part of my life through some major milestones. In the last few years I have attended regular classes in preparation for my wedding and throughout my pregnancy,
Laura Cotler got me toned for my wedding (not to mention fitting into my wedding dress). After my round of private sessions with Laura, I felt strong, and my posture and Pilates form improved dramatically. I felt good and healthy. The reformer allowed me to stay in shape, keep moving, and fight morning sickness. Attending classes also provided a community where I met several other supportive moms.
To add to it all, I originally came to Laura years ago with a bad knee...more
"A few years ago my Neurosurgeon suggested that before opting for surgery I should first try doing Pilates to alleviate my severe back pain and although skeptical at first I have become a true convert. Laura's studio was the most highly recommended of the available studios and I can see why.
Laura Cotler is a Gem. The sessions are carefully planned to maximize the benefit with minimal discomfort and her encouragement and support are exceeded only by her patience. The improvements in mobility and strength began to relieve my day-to-day discomfort almost immediately and within a few months I found myself feeling normal again.

"In my mid-30s I began to experience unrelenting episodes of low back pain due to lumbar muscle spasm. Even sitting in a car was excruciating. I tried chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, pain reliever drugs, heat/cold therapy, topical creams and a TENS unit.

It didn’t take long, however, for my back pain to worsen, plus I developed additional pain in my joints because I have a connective tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) that makes me overly flexible and prone to injury.

"When I retired several years ago, one of my goals was to find an exercise program I would stick with. I cannot remember how many gyms or fitness programs I have joined in my lifetime only to drop out after a few months. But when I discovered Laura Cotler, I knew this was the program for me.
I love the atmosphere Laura has created in her studio. It is light and airy and always clean, with windows that allow a view of the treetops. Laura is professional and warm, and she brings a great sense of humor to her classes. She always manages to ground me when I’m having an “off” day.
Laura brings new ideas and techniques from her ongoing professional training to our classes, which keeps them interesting and challenging. I also enjoy the variety of equipment available.
