Owner, Founder, & Senior Pilates Instructor

Lauren Harris founded the Lake Arrowhead Pilates Studio in August 1999. She has studied the Pilates Method under industry leaders Karen Clippinger and Rael Isacowitz. As a dancer she sought out Pilates for injury rehabilitation and was inspired to pursue her career in the Pilates Method. Harris' rigorous training, extensive certification, continuing education, background in anatomy & physiology combined with more than 25 years experience teaching classical ballet, tap and jazz give her a unique edge as a Pilates instructor.

She certified with the M.S. society 12 years ago to work with people with multiple sclerosis and has experience working with Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, scoliosis, stroke victims, and a variety of orthopedic issues. She maintains a collaborative relationship with Blue Jay Physical therapy, and receives referrals from many doctors, physical therapists and chiropractors both on and off the mountain.

She has a professional relationship with B.A.S.I as an affiliate training studio, which allows students of the BASI training method to do observation and teacher training hours at The Lake Arrowhead Pilates Center.
