Laurie began college as a marketing major but changed her mind when she felt marketing was really just making people think they wanted something they didn’t need. She switched majors many times– from English to Religion to Liberal Arts to Exercise Science, until she began designing her own major at UMASS. In that time she also earned her Associates and Certificate in Massage Therapy, trained with Power Pilates and Stott Pilates, and became a birth doula. 

While she enjoyed her many hats, she found the one that fit perfectly when she became co-owner of The Pilates Studio and finally learnt that marketing didn’t have to make her feel “icky”!

Laurie’s class is always enjoyable. She is an extremely skilled instructor whose classes are the perfect combination of fun and sweat. I leave her class feeling relaxed, refreshed, and strong!

After 20 years of yoga I decided I needed core strengthening. I was apprehensive because childhood onset scoliosis caused me to be overly protective of my upper body.  And then I heard about Katrina. She has made such a difference in my life. The extent of her knowledge and teaching skill is incredibly impressive. Katrina, Laurie and every one on the staff have created such a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere at the studio.  I’ve been going there over three years now, private classes, then small groups and now that I know my exercises I’m doing independent sessions. I absolutely love the Pilates Studio!
