Biography

Laura graduated from Keele University in July 2017 and on graduating started work as a band 5 physiotherapist in the NHS her first rotation being MSK outpatients, which she has found extremely enjoyable. During her time at university Laura completed a Level 3 diploma in sports massage which has provided additional skills to help tailor treatments to the individual.

After graduating Laura followed her interest in Pilates and is currently completing the APPI Pilates instructor training. During this course it has provided an alternative and innovative view on how to train and strengthen muscles to minimise injury risk and increase health and wellbeing, which she is hoping to bring to her treatment methods.

Alongside Pilates Laura enjoys long distance running completing the London marathon last year and is currently training for her next one. She also enjoys skiing and maintaining an active lifestyle.

Laura's Clinical Pilates classes have been of huge benefit to me in a short period of time. I have suffered 2 challenging spinal injuries which Laura has taken the time to understand and her attention to detail and focus on specific exercises to aid my rehabilitation, has been excellent. Each week, the lessons are varied, keeping motivation levels high and challenging enough for me to improve. I have attended pilates classes for many years but her precision and support makes me feel positive I can improve my fitness.

The clinical Pilates class with Laura on a Monday is by far the best class I have attended. There are only a small amount of attendees which means Laura can check everyone's positioning during each exercise to ensure they are correct. I would love to go more than once a week if Laura ran more classes 🙂
