About Laura

Laura started practicing Pilates over 8 years ago to manage her back and neck pain associated with scoliosis as well as a working at a desk full time. After realising that Pilates could be used as a preventative measure to manage pain, as well as noticing other benefits such as stress relief, increased muscle strength and better movement, she was hooked!

“It’s such a privilege to be able to bring my passion for Pilates to other people to help them live more optimally. I love that Pilates has no limits on age and ability - everyone has their own reason for coming to class and it’s so wonderful to be able to come together through movement.”

Outside of work, Laura enjoys travelling, getting out in nature, drinking coffee and a good crime TV series!

With Laura’s loving nature and aim to get you moving to your best, her classes are filled with fun but challenging exercises to get you moving and smiling at the same time.

About Victoria

Victoria was born, raised and worked in Mexico City. She has a communication bachelor degree. In Mexico she worked as a public relations consultant and journalist for 10 years before coming to Australia. After raising a family and work experience in various fields including corporate and event management, Victoria developed shoulder and hip chronic pain which left her unable to continue Latin Dance, the sport she loved most. Out of this experience she learned that if we do not not feel physycally strong, it depletes our mental fitness too. So with the support of a team of physios in Melbourne, Victoria discovered Pilates and an approach to wellness for reclaiming her best self. This personal odyssey inspired her to train and work towards gaining her certification as a mat work and reformer Pilates instructor in 2019.

Having traveled extensively in Mexico, the USA and Europe Victoria has trained in various Pilates studios which have given her further knowledge and a great repertoire of mat and reformer Pilates exercises that she enjoys sharing with her clients in Melbourne.

Victoria likes to challenge her clients and strongly believes that consistency, dedication and patience is key for achieving positive results. Victoria loves to create dynamic, fun with a high intensity reformer workouts for her clients.
