Lauren Valentine

Lauren Valentine started Pilates while achieving her BFA at the Ohio State University. Incorporating Pilates in her training added longevity to her dance career and ultimately her daily life. While dancing in New York City, she attended Jeanette Palmer’s mat class and was introduced to Linda Farrell and the LindaFit certification in 2006. Lauren soon developed a passion to teach and help others reach their full potential. Continuing her Pilates education, Lauren received certification for the apparatus through the Pilates Academy International and became a certifying member of their staff at Pilates on Fifth. While living in NYC, Lauren used her Linda Fit mat certification to teach in numerous gyms, Pilates studios and apartment buildings. Currently, Lauren lives in Los Angeles and continues to teach both privates and group classes at Align and Define in Toluca Lake.

I’m continually flattered by students ( and Pilates instructors alike) commenting on my knowledge, understanding and ability to communicate the mat work- I owe that to a truly gracious and incredibly knowledgeable Pilate mat GODDESS named Linda Farrell!
