About Us

Natural Pilates’ founder, Laura Wilson, immigrated to the US from her native Romania in 2002, with only $100 in her pocket. By 2005, she was a successful masseuse and a Stott-certified Pilates Instructor with an elite, private studio, located in the heart of Beverly Hills, California.  In 2007, she had become so busy that she hired an additional instructor and began teaching group classes, creating her own signature style that combines the traditional Pilates repertoire with concepts inspired by personal training and other fitness modalities. Natural Pilates now has three locations in the Los Angeles area, teaching training and continuing education programs, and Natural Pilates TV — an online portal with subscribers all over the world. 

Programs

The inspiration for and basis of Natural Pilates Mat Teacher Training Program is the human body. From the perspective of anatomy, muscular function and joint motion, we teach our students the Pilates Mat repertoire and how it can be adapted to clients’ individual bodies, needs and goals. Our Mat Training includes 120 total hours of lecture, self-study and practice-teaching. It begins with a 40-hour in-person course combining lecture and supervised practice-teaching, which provides students with the solid foundation necessary to understand the simple motions that occur at each joint, as well as the extensive choreography designed by Joseph Pilates. Each exercise is presented with modifications and variations that teach students how to regress and progress Pilates’ original choreography to design tailored programs. Students also learn when and how to incorporate Pilates props —  the Magic Circle, Stability Ball, Flex Band and ankle/free weights — to add assistance or difficulty to an exercise.

Through the lens of anatomy and an understanding of the “physics of Pilates” — line of force, resistance profiles, gravity, friction and compression — Natural Pilates Reformer Teacher Training Program teaches its students to understand more than the classical choreography.  Our Reformer Program includes 300 total hours of lecture, self-study and  practice-teaching.  Our goal is to train students to understand the “why?” behind the repertoire. Students learn the traditional beginner, intermediate, and advanced choreography created by Joseph Pilates, as well as how to break down these exercises, looking at joint motion, muscular participation, and the internal and external forces working in each series. We believe that learning the repertoire in this way helps our students become better instructors who can easily adapt exercises to meet the specific needs and goals of their future clientele.  We also explore effective verbal and hands-on cueing techniques and programming for private sessions, group classes and special populations.
