At Equilibrium we are passionate about movement and our goal is to enable everyone to feel good in their own bodies.
We believe that Pilates is key to foster a deep connection between body and mind. The awareness and focus unique to the Pilates practice lead to an intense and deeply satisfying workout, which will leave you feeling stronger, more flexible and free from pain.
While we embrace the principles Joseph Pilates advocated, closely following his teaching and inspiration, we also keep up to date with the latest findings in the science of movement, in an approach that effectively marries tradition and research.
We have several locations in London: check our contact page to find out more.
Dr Laura Porro
Laura discovered Pilates as a way to improve her posture. She practiced Pilates for several years and her passion for it eventually led her to decide to qualify as a teacher. Laura is interested in how Pilates supports people to feel comfortable and confident in their bodies. In particular, she focuses on how Pilates can help musicians move safely and effectively in asymmetric positions. Laura loves to deepen her understanding of how bodies work and she holds specialist qualifications in bone health and osteoporosis, and pre/postnatal Pilates.
“When I practice Pilates, I am fully absorbed. I feel inside my body and mind in a way that no other activity allows me to experience. I emerge from Pilates practice feeling a deeper sense of connection, which I hope my clients experience as well.”
Sarah has been working as a movement educator for over 15 years. Her background is as Capoeira teacher / practitioner and she first came to Pilates over 10 years ago to help cure recurring back pain. Pilates increasingly became part of her practice and this led her to train as a teacher in 2017. Sarah has a particular interest in how Pilates can support athletic training (especially martial arts and dance) and become part of our every day lives - to help us move better and be free from pain. Sarah holds specialist qualifications in bone health and osteoporosis, and pre/postnatal Pilates.
“I have tried many ways to address my own back problems, yet Pilates was really the only thing that made a long lasting improvement. I love the way Pilates helps us to feel connected to our bodies and more aware of how we are moving. It is empowering to know that we can help ourselves to feel better!”
