Lori Sakai

Lori discovered Pilate after living with chronic back pain since the age of 14. In Pilates she found a set of exercises that turned out to be so much more than "just exercises". She found that Pilates unlocked her mind and her muscles, an finally, she could move! Now it feels as though any movement task she embarks on is possible.

Lori left her career in Finance, and completed the Pilates Institute of Southern CA Teacher Training Program in 2011. She attended the Heritage Training, a masters program, based on the work of Kathleen Stanford Grant and taught by Cara Reeser. She now shares all the "secrets" of Pilates with her clients. "I ask them to find their center, and not just physically but mentally as well". Lori enjoys helping them to experience the mind, body and the spirit working as one. She also enjoys taking continuing education so her practice can evolve with the times.
