“This year has opened up more opportunities to learn online and I have worked with Laura Hausler in Seattle to learn more about Scoliosis. Some things I have worked with her on are for myself and also taking her training for my clients. I have felt how the placement of my feet, small awarenesses in a certain area, and breathing have made a world of difference! I highly recommend Laura and I thoroughly enjoyed this learning process. Her cues are the best and she can make the easiest movement feel like a full-body exercise! “

Workshop Attendee Reflection

“Last weekend I had the honor and pleasure of meeting Laura Hausler at ARA Pilates and Movement in Indian Wells, CA.  I was told that Laura would be an amazing and informative speaker and that she specializes in Pilates clients that have Scoliosis.  I had recently acquired two clients, one with a new diagnosis and one who has lived with Scoliosis for 40 plus years.  I was excited to see what I could do/learn to better help these clients. Within five minutes of meeting Laura, I was so thrilled that I decided to attend this workshop.  Her energy, positive spirit, and charisma is just fabulous.  Add all that to the fact that she is a wealth of information and knowledge.  The workshop lasted five hours.  None of us even wanted a break, we just wanted to keep learning. Some of the highlights of the workshop were walking in and receiving a manual that allowed us to take notes and follow along with the course.  The manual included great tips on everything from how to properly interview a client with Scoliosis, how to properly position a client while standing, seated, side-lying, prone and supine, and the best part was the list of exercises that work best to include in a session on all the different apparatus used in Pilates.  It was the perfect amount of discussion and hands on exercises and movement. Laura creates an atmosphere that allows you to ask questions, videotape when appropriate, and impart knowledge on you in a way that leaves you wanting more.  The most terrific thing so far, when I got back to my studio my client allowed me to work with her and send information to Laura to ask for further assistance for working with my specific client. Literally, within minutes of receiving my email, Laura responded and helped me to create a session specific to my client’s needs.  In my opinion, Laura is a great example of a consummate professional. Thank you, Laura! I look forward to learning more from you in the future. “
