She has been an indoor cycling instructor for the past 6 1/2 years and was thrilled to expand her teaching and movement knowledge in 2019 at Core by completing the Teacher Training.

Laura has aspired to be an athlete at every stage of her life. After a recurring running injury set her back in 2010, a friend recommended barre classes, and soon after she became a group fitness junkie. A few years later she dislocated her shoulder in a rollerblading accident and in the years that followed attended physical therapy to treat both shoulders. After rehabilitating from shoulder surgery she joined a Pilates studio near her apartment in Chicago and immediately began to notice her body recover faster and stronger. What Laura admires most about Pilates is it is a safe, challenging, and healing workout for the mind and body. She is an apprentice teacher and is expected to complete her 500-hour certification at the end of 2021.

She instantly became passionate about Pilates & knew that she wanted to gain more knowledge about the practice. She completed Pilates Teacher Training with in 2021 and is finishing up her teaching hours.
Pilates & Yoga
Sara originally pursued a 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2017 as a way to deepen her own practice, but she fell in love with teaching and, in 2018, went on to complete a 300-hour teacher training that focused on using therapeutic yoga practices to work with clients one-on-one. Over the years, she practiced mat pilates off and on, but really fell in love with it in 2015 before the birth of her 3rd child. With more consistent practice, she immediately noticed improvements in her core strength and posture. Committed to being a lifelong learner, Sara decided to pursue further training with Jenna Goode and Megan McCusker through CCB’s Teacher Training. She loves helping her clients feel better in body, mind, and spirit. She believes that the mental aspect of fitness is just as important as the physical and always keeps her classes upbeat and positive.
