I have taken pilates for many years. My injury of a bulging disc in my lower spine has been extremely difficult to overcome, inhibiting my daily activities and living in constant, excruciating pain for almost 6 years. Pilates always made me feel more aware of my body positioning. With Laurel's help, I am learning how to be pain free on a daily basis. In just 5 short months, I am able to get through my days with renewed energy and NO pain, thanks to Laurel's knowledgeable and skilled guidance.
