A ballerina since she was 3 years old, Laura loved the movement, grace and beauty of ballet. While complementing her ballet training with Pilates, Laura discovered the same principals that she grew to love in ballet also applied to Pilates. She instantly fell in love with Pilates, practicing both on the mat and on the reformer. Laura earned her Mat Pilates certification when she was just 17 years old, and never stopped teaching Pilates. Years later, Laura is as much in love with Pilates as she was when she introduced the "Mat" and the "Hundred" to students for the first time. Laura started as one of the first instructors at Upside Motion, and recently moved back to Singapore from San Diego, and thrilled to be back to rekindle with the Upside Motion community. Laura is a Power Pilates certified instructor, and continues her training and education to further enhance her expertise.
