with Laura Guarnera
This course aims to restore the body’s natural strength, undo bad posture, encourage dynamic alignment and increase flexibility and strength. Inspiral Flow Pilates allows the body to unwind, and to find a deeper connection between physical and emotional being through the use of breath.
Inspiral Pilates Flow Course will develop a comprehensive knowledge of the progressive Pilates matwork with plenty of variation and modifications. Inspiral Flow Pilates repertoire is vast and concentrates on functionality, rejuvenation and healing. It has the clarity and mindfulness of Pilates at its core, the self-perception of Feldenkrais, the rich visualisation and poetry of Franklin method, the spirituality of yoga and the joy of dance.
Classes are filled with rich imagery and evocative questions that draw you into your own physicality, and provides space to reflect on life.
Inspiral Flow Pilates works with clarity, inquiry and efficiency, integrating movement into a flowing whole body experience. Applying Pilates principles on the mat and in relation to objects, and using the resistance of walls, the support of benches, and the rolling massage quality of foam rollers, the results can be striking: defeating body habits and undoing unnecessary tension to move in an easy, multi-dimensional way.
Although movement, breath, space are a key features of my classes, students of all levels are welcome to join.
Because the embodiment is the key, not the shape, the unicity of your body is fundamental.

Choreographer, performer, teacher and video director Laura Guarnera trained at the Laban Centre, London in 1989.
She is a qualified Garuda apparatus and Mat teacher, studying directly with the inspiring teacher and friend James D’Silva, developer of the Garuda Method. She is a versatile and knowledgeable teacher with over 30 years of experience in movement, and a diverse background in Dance, Pilates, Gyrotonic, Yoga, Franklin method, Body Mind Centering and Contact Improvisation.
Her companies Trinacria Teatro Danza and Compagnia Guarnera Guy have won many awards, including the “International Choreographic Award” Groninghen , The Netherlands and “Leaders for London Millennium Award”, UK.
Laura has been Head of the Contemporary Dance Department at Performers Colleges since 1997 and since 2012 has been working as a freelance artist.
Laura’s love for movement brought her to approach Pilates and Yoga with an artistic visualization of movement, space-ground orientation and exploration of the relationship between movement and experimental anatomy.
She travelled to India, and in Rajasthan gained a Diploma in Yoga and Meditation at the Saraswati Academy. Recently she opened a new venue in Goa with Sandeep Meheta, named Club Meditation Yoga Retreats.
Laura is also a Pilates Foundation UK Teacher/member, and her interest in modern Pilates has led her to study with teachers such as James De Silva, Anouska Bourne, Susanne Lahusen, and Gary Carter. Her interest in ideokinesis has also led her to study with Eric Franklin, the former member of the Franklin Method, to expand her visual approach to functional bodies.
She teaches group yoga, Pilates and fusion classes in London and also teaches one to one, private sessions and remedial work.
