Founder of Pure / Instructor
Susanna has been teaching Pilates since 2003. She originally studied with Stott Pilates in Oxford and completed their full certification in 2007.
Her thirst for learning more led to the discovery of classical Pilates and she has been hooked ever since.
Susanna has spent the last 5 years travelling around the world training with the world’s leading classical Pilates trainers. In 2013 she was accepted to study under Jay Grimes in Vintage Pilates Los Angeles, a first generation master teacher who worked in Joseph and Clara Pilates’s studio over 10 years. She completed their intensive Masters Programme in 2014 and got invited to continue the mentorship programme with Jay until 2016.
Having managed a Pilates studio in Saudi Arabia and worked in several in Dubai, she opened her first own studio PURE in October 2014.
Lauren began her Pilates teacher training with Body Control UK in 2006. After obtaining her qualification, she taught several years in a Pilates studio in North London while simultaneously running her own business as a freelance teacher offering private and group lessons.
After moving to Dubai she continued her teacher training with Pilates Moves (Australia), completing their reformer course. In 2010 Lauren started training with Susanna Foustok and is currently working to master the full classical system.
