Elizabeth Reilly

Laura's business originally opened as Laura Ring Pilates in 2011.  With a growing business, she desired to offer a more spacious studio with a focus on wellness in the community and opened CORE Aspirations Pilates and Fitness Studio in 2014.  Her goal is to offer clients a place to come for injury prevention, injury rehab, strength conditioning, or general fitness for all levels, while keeping the highest quality at affordable prices!
Additionally, the studio has recently become a host site for Power Pilates Certifications.  If you are interested in becoming certified in Pilates, contact Laura for more information.  If you are already a certified instructor and in need of Continuing Education Credits, the studio hosts STOTT PILATES® workshops annually.  These workshops are also open to all who are interested; Fitness Instructors and Pilates enthusiasts alike.  These intensive workshops are taught by experienced STOTT PILATES® Instructor Trainers from Atlanta.  Contact Laura for more information on dates and times of the workshops.
