Owner, Power Pilates Certified
Laura has been a fitness enthusiast since childhood. Running and aerobics classes were her favorite activities until she discovered Pilates. Immediately hooked, Laura worked out religiously with her teacher, Melissa Truitt, at her studio in New Jersey.
As her kids got older, she realized she needed to follow her own dreams — sharing the genius of the Pilates mindful movement and owning her own business! Laura is certified through Power Pilates in New York City, and is eager to inspire others to achieve their fitness goals through Pilates.
Pilates Technique Certification -- Classical Pilates
Margie completed her Pilates certification in 1998 from the Pilates Technique Certification in Los Angeles, CA. A long-time fitness buff, Pilates introduced her to not only an entirely new method of movement, but made her feel like she truly had something to offer people who came to her to learn Pilates - helping them learn about their body, helping them out of pain and how to use Pilates in their daily life. She has worked with athletes, the elderly, clients with hip or other joint replacements and the average 'Joe's and Josephine's'. Her favorite thing about Pilates is that it works for every body. Over the past 12 years, Margie has competed in triathlons from sprint to Ironman distances and credits Pilates for keeping her injury-free and fully mobile.
Romana's Pilates Certified
Lillie is a life-long learner and wellness enthusiast. She discovered Pilates as a way to help her relieve pain and discomfort in her neck, shoulders and back. Realizing that her body was not responding to her old ways of training and seeing that her body was not aging the way she wanted it to, she decided to try Pilates. The results were incredible and beyond what she expected. Increased flexibility and much-needed back and core strength through a committed Pilates practice took back years of pain and degeneration. She felt like she was turning back time. As a result, Lillie decided to become certified as an instructor to help others reap the benefits of Pilates. She decided to commit herself to a year-long apprenticeship under Holly Leun, Regional Director of Romana’s Pilates in Atlanta. She has completed over 700 hours of written and practical study at the Romana’s Pilates Certification Center and got certified under Holly Leun, Marjorie Oron and Juanita Lopez. Lillie lives in Milton with her supportive husband, two amazing daughters and loveable rescues Bear (collie mix) and Rizzo (crazy cat).
