About Me: The Pilates Fanatic

I have been teaching Pilates for the past 17 years, for most of which I ran my own studio in Cape Town, South Africa. The traveling bug hit me in 2017, however I didn’t want to leave my very loyal clients in the lurch, or give up on my passion for teaching Pilates, thus begun the thought process of moving my studio online. A few months later, Pilates By Lauren was born! I love to film my classes in new locations and bring you snippets of my life from wherever I may be. Sometimes it’s in my living room, sometimes it’s on a beach in Bali! My videos are natural and relaxed as I try to emanate the true-life studio experience as far as possible. My number one focus is to provide superb customer service. I strongly believe that as a fitness professional, any business within the wellness industry should base it’s primary objective on customer care.

“I have a great passion for my profession, and I believe every person can achieve more than they perceive. Wellness is a daily journey and not an end result. Make everyday the day you feel you are worth it.” – Lauren Sale

Qualifications and Experience

I first began Pilates in 2002 and completely rehabilitated my back after having a severe car accident and chronic back injuries. Thanks to Pilates, I now live a pain-free life and strive to help others optimize their health. I am internationally qualified in Personal Training and achieved my National Diploma from The Exercise Teachers Academy, South Africa. I specialize in Pilates, Yoga and Body Sculpt. I continued my education in England in 2006, working with the renowned Body Control Method, London. I then went on to work on the Celebrity Constellation, a luxury five star Cruise Liner – as fitness director – and there studied further in five star guest service, fitness, nutrition and detoxification. In 2012 I completed my theory in Body Intelligence, allowing me to instruct individuals with injuries. In 2014 I completed my certification to instruct prenatal and postnatal pregnancy exercise classes.
