Benefits of CORE Training

  • Small classes at SAN ROQUE PILATES allow for an intimate and non-intimidating setting. Instructors pay close attention to form and alignment, ensuring each session is safe and effective.
  • Our team of barre instructors have multiple fitness certifications, years of teaching experience, and are motivating and supportive.
  • Barre classes are fun, dynamic, and engaging. Choreographed to the latest, upbeat music, you’ll feel uplifted and energized.
  • Using body weight and light weights, get full-body toning for long and lean muscles. We work multiple muscle groups at once, targeting both major and supporting muscle groups.
  • Build muscle and burn calories at the same time, getting more rapid results, while losing weight and inches. The lean muscle mass you’ll build will help increase your metabolism and burn more calories throughout the rest of your day.
  • Classes are cardiovascular, good for your heart, and stress-busting.
  • Barre is high intensity, yet low impact. It’s easy on the joints, and helps prevent future joint wear, while increasing flexibility, range of motion, and endurance.
  • With small classes and attentive instructors, we can modify each class, making it suitable for almost anyone. Our barre is effective for beginners as well as seasoned barre pros. You won’t get bored with San Roque Pilates barre, helping you always stay challenged and motivated.
  • Our barre classes emphasize balanced training that targets all areas of the body, including the arms and shoulders, back and hips, abs and legs, and of course, the booty.
  • By working with good form and correct alignment in mind, you can improve posture and reduce common aches and pains.
  • Barre is a great cross-training modality for other sports and activities, like running or cycling. Barre incorporates exercises with full range of motion, and trains the body evenly, unlike other sports which are linear in motion and injury prone.

Laura Haston

Pilates & Barre Instructor

Laura began her career in health and fitness when she became a Jazzercise instructor 30 years ago while pursuing a PhD in environmental science at UCSB. Maintaining a regular exercise routine enabled her to manage the stress of academia. She taught Jazzercise regularly for 16 years in Santa Barbara and Carpinteria while working as a professor at Cal State Northridge and later as an Assistant Dean at UCSB. Also, during this time Laura because interested in yoga and Pilates and became a regular practitioner of both and pursued her first Pilates certification through IM=X Pilates. After 20+ years in academia, Laura decided to take the bold step and retire from the university so that she could pursue fully what had always been her primary passion—helping individuals maintain active lifestyles and enjoy dignified longevity through mindful fitness and movement. Laura pursued certifications in Bikram Yoga, Hatha/Flow Yoga from Santa Barbara Yoga Center and Stott Pilates and has taught at a number of studios in Santa Barbara. She is a certified Stott Pilates mat and reformer trainer. She has also completed Stott Pilates trainings in Stability Chair, Barrels, and Injuries and Special Populations as well as a number of specialty workshops. Laura is devoted to continuing her education and training. Most recently, she took Stott’s foundation courses and numerous workshop for ZEN•GA™, a synergistic blend of mind-body modalities. In addition, Laura participated in Booty Barre training and is excited to offer these fun, high-energy dance-inspired classes which weave together her past experience in dance fitness and her more recent passions of Pilates and yoga. Laura is committed to making her classes and sessions with clients a mind-body experience so that students can learn long-term, effective movement patterns that nourish and/or heal their body while simultaneously focusing their mind to bring a greater sense of calm and self awareness.
