Finance by day, Pilates by night! Ryan has always had a passion for fitness and has tried most, if not all, of New York’s specialty gyms and workouts, but nothing ever really stuck. Then his husband introduced him to Nofar Method which, according to Ryan, “transforms your body into a piece of art”. His classes are full-body workouts, but he likes to focus on arms and core the most. “Gotta kill that core!” is a motto he lives by.
Lauren brings her background in Yoga and career in personal training to the concentrated and meticulous movements of the Nofar Method. After having her first experience with Pilates she has been strongly committed to the practice, and has incorporated the modality into her personal workout routine multiple times per week. Lauren believes there is nothing quite like the results that you can achieve on the Reformer and Cadillac and she is delighted to be able to share the Nofar Method with others. Lauren has helped clients reach their goals of putting on muscle, losing weight, getting stronger, and improving posture and lifestyle.
