Lauren first found Pilates mat classes at the age of 15 in an attempt to overcome dancing injuries. She was hooked. Not only could she feel the changes in her body, she found herself more centred and ready for the challenges of performance, study and final year exams.
Lauren left Melbourne after gaining a place in drama school, returning briefly before being accepted into a post-graduate program at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, London. Throughout her actor training Pilates continued to ground and centre her during her physical and vocal training. Upon Lauren’s return to Australia, her acting work and body was continually informed by the Pilates Method. It wasn’t until she was diagnosed with a hip injury that she discovered the true magic of Pilates.
The practice of Pilates as her rehab helped her regain her range of movement and reduced her pain symptoms and it was then she decided to take her interest further. Lauren then went on the study her Diploma of Professional Pilates Instruction (10537NAT) at National Pilates Training and loved every minute of it. From there she gained employment at Aligned for Life Pilates and hasn’t looked back since.
