When sports nutritionist and Coastal Body Studio Director Lauren Dauscher was training for the St. Jude Marathon in Memphis, she sought a workout that not only conditioned the entire body, but also focused on preventing injury. What she discovered was an enduring passion for Pilates training. Lauren began her studies with Penelope Wyer Barrow, who was taught by the master eye of Joseph Pilates’s protégé Romana Kryzanowska, and Lauren has since gone on to learn from countless luminaries of the Pilates universe. Her resulting program helps student build strength, control, and flexibility, a trio of physical abilities ideal for those competing in sports, seeking rehabilitation, or lifting their couch to look for a misplaced gift receipt.
Lauren’s studio blends mat training with work performed on the reformer, barrels, and the wunda chair. She complements workouts with one-on-one nutritional counseling, which includes coaching, meal planning, and dietary support.
