Entrepreneur Laura Detert grows Open Studio Pilates

Laura Detert, 48, opened Open Studio Pilates on St. James Street in northern downtown last month, accomplishing something she’d been dreaming about for years.

Detert has lived in Columbia for the last 17 years and worked a few jobs, most recently as a paralegal, but a shoulder injury sustained during a bike ride set her on the path to her current career. While rehabilitating, Detert discovered the healing powers of 20th century fitness guru Joseph Pilate’s exercise routines and was soon teaching classes of her own on the side.

So far the returns, and the location, have exceeded her expectations.
