Lauren DeHerrera recently relocated to Seattle from Salt Lake City, UT where she received her training as a STOTT PILATES® instructor from Intermountain Pilates Training Center. Dance has always played a significant role in her life; she studied both modern dance and ballet at Ballet West Academy in Salt Lake City and the Joffrey Ballet School in New York City. Her interest in movement led her to explore other practices including Yoga and Pilates. Lauren enjoys helping people with a range of abilities from beginners to athletes as she endeavors to expand her skills and knowledge through continuing studies in injury rehabilitation. Her other passions include Art and Art History, which she studied at the University of Utah where she received her MA in 2014. When not teaching Pilates, Lauren works at a fine art gallery in downtown Seattle. In her free time, you’ll also find her at the dance studio, farmers market, or hiking in the forest with her cat.
