About The Workshop

It’s said that negative emotions like to live in places in our bodies that get the least amount of release; a place where they can hide and won’t be disturbed and the hips seems to be a favourite spot. This workshop will explore ways of opening the hips with a series of Pilates, yoga and Franklin influenced stretches, mobilising and strengthening sequences. This workshop will be particularly beneficial to those who run, cycle or anyone who leads fairly linear life, especially those who sit for any length of time. Lauren's approach to the Pilates repertoire is fluid and encourages creativity. This workshop hopefully will inspire you with new ideas and approaches, as well as inspire new questions about how we practice and teach Pilates.

Workshop Review

I have been attending Lauren’s Pilates classes on a regular basis for several years. Lauren is an excellent teacher of Pilates. Her knowledge of the subject and its methodology is second to none. Her teaching is dynamic, always well focused to the abilities and needs of the class and the individuals within it. There is a pace to her teaching, which is carefully judged. Her demonstrations and explanations are clear and well integrated into the structure of the lessons. Lauren’s classes attract a wide age range; all speak highly of the benefits they gain in fitness, posture and general well-being. I cannot recommend Lauren’s Pilates work highly enough.
