Laura Escott

Founder & Master Instructor

Laura has been in the health and fitness industry for over 10 years. Passion for fitness has driven her for as long as she can remember.  She is a Pilates instructor and certified thru the Pilates Method Alliance. In addition to being a Pilates enthusiast Laura fell in love with the BarreAmped® Method and decided to become certified in 2011 under Suzanne Bowen, the creator.  Laura is a Teacher Trainer for the method. You can expect to see trainings of this kind at the studio multiple times per year.  Laura is also a Teacher Trainer and mentor for Pilates students.

Laura will tell you that her journey in fitness and passion has evolved and grown throughout the years.  It is her goal to connect with clients and share her experiences finding a mind body connection thru movement. “I believe that there is a direct link between physicality of movement and emotion. If my clients can access this space then the workouts don’t become about the aesthetics anymore they become about being kind to yourself. That is where the balance and healthful living is achieved.” Laura loves looking for new restaurants that accommodate her plant based diet and sharing wine with her friends and husband. Laura has one son and a Pomeranian fur baby named Avery. She can’t wait to see you in the studio!
