From group classes to private instruction, Aria's Pilates program combines classic methodologies with new age Reformer machine instruction

A long-time student of Pilates, Shapiro's approach focuses on teaching the principles of Pilates to enable students of all levels to experience physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Her creative approach emphasizes breath and control to build strength and increase flexibility. Currently, Aria Athletic Club offers two types of Vail Pilates instruction. The Pilates Mat is a series of challenging, well balanced movements performed on floor mats. Additionally, Vail's largest athletic club offers Pilates Group Equipment, which uses a specialized Reformer machine and classic Pilates methodology to help participants develop muscular control, grace, strength, and flexibility. With Shapiro now on board, Aria Athletic Club will now also be able to offer private Pilates instruction by appointment.

"We are excited to have Lara on board managing our growing Pilates program in Vail," said Craney. "Her passion for Pilates combined with her desire to help promote personal health and wellness will positively elevate our participant's experience. She is a talented instructor and we are excited to have her on board."
