About Laurie Pyne
I’m not a natural-born athlete!
In terms of sportiness I was scared of everything.
I wrote myself off when I was about 9 and couldn’t climb up those thick, smelly gym ropes.
As I obviously couldn’t be a gymnast or a ballerina (never took ballet lessons), I decided that the recorder rocked, and so seamlessly transitioned into becoming a musician instead.
“Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power.”
– Lao Tzu
I spent years teaching Music and dance, running choirs and coaching upset young people, but I needed more mojo.
Rock climbing, MTB, running, riding, mountaineering, teaching yoga, pole fitness, coasteering or kayaking; the irresistible challenge.
Whatever I did demanded total presence, unearthing my inner game, and staying connected to my feelings – as well as falling off almost everything!
As every activity brought its own set of minor injuries, I learnt a ton about bodies from the amazing and talented osteopaths and physios I visited along the way.
Seemed like every time I hurt myself, someone in one of my classes did something similar. Thus we shared the journey of cause, effect and how best to heal.
This was key to understanding how my body worked.
I fell in love with everything Pilates offered – it was so hard that I decided to teach it, and trained with some excellent tutors from the inspirational Stott Pilates team.
After 35 years my Pilates classes are now an interactive mix of insight, observation, creative instructions, tons of laughter and 2-way feedback.
Clients care about each other’s progress, and actively pursue measurable change in their bodies and minds.
Performance coaching is the culmination of all my skills.
Motivated by the need to upgrade some unskilful habits I’d absorbed as a terrified kid, I learnt how to see and how to change.
