Laura Misek

Laura Misek loves to move and has been inspiring people to lead active
lives since 1995 as a Certified Group Fitness Instructor and Personal
Trainer. In 2002, she added the  STOTT PILATES® Certification to her repertoire. Pilates has become her favourite tool in the development of
body awareness.

With years of experience working with people of all ages, and walks of life, she is able to tailor sessions to meet her client’s particular needs. Understanding that we are all unique, her goal is to help her clients become aware of their own sensations and movement patterns so they can gain more control over their bodies to move and feel better.

Laura is diversified. She enjoys training a professional athlete to improve their performance just as much as helping those who are suffering from arthritis, osteoporosis or back injuries, to experience a better quality of life. A series of workshops taught by a podiatrist inspired Laura to incorporate standing Pilates into her programs to emphasize the importance of our feet and their impact on our bodies. Through studying and following the most recent research on the vital role fascia plays in our bodies, she is excited to share new ways to feel and relate to our bodies. Laura continues to
keep us moving.
