Laura Baynes PhysioPilates
Welcome. Laura is a Chartered Physiotherapist & Certified Pilates Instructor living and working in Norfolk. She has been practising physiotherapy since 2005 and teaching Pilates since 2007. Laura began her career in Cambridge, before heading to New Zealand and Australia to work. Born and bred in Norwich, Laura felt drawn back from the southern hemisphere to her home county where she now resides with her husband and daughter.
Laura enjoys running, swimming, climbing, hiking, surfing and skiing. She has found very beneficial carryover from Pilates to these activities, as well as in the management of her scoliosis (spinal curvature) in day to day life and in her return to fitness following the birth of her daughter in 2019.
Pilates is an effective & enjoyable form of exercise to help optimise your posture, tone and suppleness, as well as rehabilitate or manage any injuries or condition.
It is named after Joseph Pilates, who developed this body conditioning exercise for ‘…the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind and the ability to perform life’s daily activities with zest and ease’. (Joseph Pilates)
The focus is on alignment, control, flow and the use of your inner core (or, as Joseph Pilates called it, your “powerhouse”) to support your skeletal frame thereby facilitating perfect posture and ease of movement.
Laura teaches classes of 10 max. The classes are varied and progressive; they include the use of small equipment such as resistance bands & foam rollers, and regular technique checks. Laura screens all attendees so that she can tailor participation to suit each individual and their goals. She always wears her ‘physio hat’ when teaching to ensure attendees exercise safely and effectively.
Laura is currently running her classes via Zoom. She is not taking on any new clients at present, however please get in touch to be placed on the waiting list ready for when classes return to being run normally or simply to find out if it is for you and worth waiting for.
