Lauren Wright, PMA®-CPT, is the owner and instructor at Imagine. She fell in love with the beautiful island of Guam when visiting in 1999 and moved from the US in 2004. She discovered Pilates shortly thereafter in Honolulu, when she attended a class and realized that she was working muscles she never knew she had! She loved the work and wanted very much to bring it back to the island with her. She continued her studies and received her Body Arts and Sciences International (BASI) Pilates teacher certification in Australia in 2009. In 2010, she continued her education with BASI founder Rael Isacowitz at the headquarters in California. She has also worked extensively with classical and contemporary instructors in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong, London, Seattle, Phoenix, and Melbourne. In 2011, Lauren completed the instructor training for the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods. She is delighted to be the first and only certified GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® teacher on Guam!
Lauren is committed to excellence in her teaching. She is proud to be the first and only Pilates Method Alliance Certified Pilates Teacher on Guam. She continually works to deepen her knowledge of both the Pilates and GYROTONIC® methods. In 2012 she traveled to Mexico to study with Juliu Horvath, the original creator of the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®, and she completed her Pre/Post Natal Pilates Specialist certification with Carolyne Anthony, founder of the Center for Women's Fitness. In 2013 she attended Pilates workshops with Jennifer Kries and she was honored with the opportunity to learn from Pilates Elder Jay Grimes. In 2014 she completed specialized GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® workshops with AMT Juergen Bamberger and AMT Lisa Marie Goodwin-Rice and additional Pilates intensives with Jennifer Kries, Siri Dharma Galliano, and Madeline Black. She is happy and proud to have had a second opportunity to learn from Juliu Horvath as well! In 2015, in addition to attending Pilates workshops with Jillian Hessel and Niedra Gabriel, she also completed Rice Release Technique™ and NeuroKinetic Therapy® training to assist her further in finding and correcting faulty movement patterns. In 2016, she attended the Anatomy Trains Dissection Course with Tom Myers, completed a Pilates workshop with Lori Coleman-Brown, and traveled to Europe in order to learn from Juliu Horvath for a third time. She earned her diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice and followed on by attending GYROTONIC® specialty training for Osteopathy. In 2017, she attended the Anatomy Trains Dissection Course for a second time. She also completed a Pilates workshop with Kathi Ross-Nash, Anatomy in Motion with Gary Ward, and the Primal Movement Chains and RockTape FMT Performance certification with Dr. Perry Nickelston. Lauren is a Licensed Fletcher Towelwork®, Barrework® and Floorwork® Provider and a member of both the Pilates Method Alliance and the Authentic Pilates Union.
