Lauren Crowther is the owner and operator of Studio Technique. Lauren’s extensive background as a dancer takes her back to the age of four. As a competitive dancer, Lauren trained at many prestigious schools and several workshops throughout North America. When Lauren began to incorporate Pilates into her dance training, she realized how it added a completely different level of strengthening and conditioning to her body. Pilates taught her how to integrate her mind with movement. Inspired by the results, Lauren knew she wanted to show others how to connect mind and body on a deeper level. Since 2007, Lauren has been a Fully Certified STOTT PILATES™ Instructor. She is certified on all pieces of equipment from essential right through to the advanced level. She has also completed the Injuries & Special Populations course, which has given her the knowledge to work with clients that suffer from sports injuries, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Back Pain, Arthritis, just to name a few. She enjoys working with clients of every skill level ranging from professional dancers, avid athletes, clients that need post rehabilitation, and pre and post natal women. Lauren’s charismatic and energetic zest for life is contagious amongst her clients. Lauren is honoured to be an Ambassador for Lululemon Burlington at the Mapleview Mall! Lauren’s greatest joy is being a new mama to her beautiful baby girl Ella.
