Laura Mejia

Pilates Instructor

Laura completed her degree in physiotherapy at University CES in Colombia. She is a professional in the field of health with sound knowledge of the human body, including the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. She is also interested in alternative therapies because she studied a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine. She believes in the connection between mind and body and how this helps us to recover from our injuries.

Laura worked as a Pilates instructor in her own country and she was training for Body Balance Colombia. She thinks through Pilates people can become aware of their bodies and healing themselves. Controlling their muscles and movements allows people to better exercise and move in a way to benefit their body.

When she came to New Zealand she fell in love with the country and decided to study for a Diploma in Business Healthcare Management NZ. She likes to do exercise outside such as running. She practices yoga and pilates as a hobby and in her free time she loves to read books related to these two practices.
