About Aproma

Established in 2001, APROMA STUDIOS is a fully equipped STOTT PILATES® studio offering group classes and private lessons. We also provide Licensed Massage Therapy, Organic Facials, Reiki w/ Aromatherapy and Holistic Nutritional Counseling.

What is PILATES?

Pilates is a mind-body exercise emphasizing core engagement and deep breathing. Benefits include core strength, joint and back pain relief, improved posture and long/lean muscle development. STOTT PILATES® is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates. Co-founders Moira and Lindsay G. Merrithew, along with a team of physical therapists, sports medicine and fitness professionals, have spent more than a decade refining the STOTT PILATES® method of exercise and equipment. This resulted in the inclusion of modern principles of exercise science and spinal rehabilitation, making it one of the safest and effective methods available. This clear and detailed approach forms the basis for STOTT PILATES® training and certification programs. It's used by rehab and prenatal clients, athletes, celebrities and everyone in between.

Why Aproma Studios?

Qualified instructors, high-end Pilates/TRX equipment offered nowhere else in the area, totally unique, safe and effective combination classes, small class size of 3-6 students.

Lori Bio Pic
  • Lori sought Ashtanga Yoga from Lou Gaccione in 2003 after nearly three decades of competing in long-distance running and Ironman Triathlons. Forced to give up running due to chronic knee injuries, she soon discovered that Ashtanga Yoga not only provided her with the challenging workout she craved, but did so in a safe and low impact way. Now a regular Ashtanga Yoga practitioner, Lori was able to heal her knee joints while maintaining a high level of physical fitness. It also brought relief from back pain and emotional stress, while increasing mental focus. She credits Ashtanga for bringing her clarity, structure, calmness and balance. Now with her competitive athletic career long over, Ashtanga enables her to handle the wear and tear that daily life brings. In 2006, Lori Cote received a Yoga Teaching Certificate from David Swenson. In 2009 she attended a Primary Adjustment Clinic with Nancy Gilgoff at Bristol Yoga in Vermont. She had the great privilege of participating in led classes with Pattabhi Jois and Saraswathi in NYC. In 2014 she attended a Led Primary Series clsss , lecture and pranayama with Sharath Jois on his U.S. tour. Lori has attended many additional workshops with Nancy Gilgoff and David Swenson though out the years, as well as workshop participation with Ashtanga teachers Manju Jois, Lino Miele, Christine Hoar and Kino Macgregor among others. Lori continues her daily Ashtanga Yoga practice at Ashtanga Yoga Rhode Island. Lori Cote is a Physical Therapist Assistant, Licensed Massage Therapist and STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor. She is the owner of Aproma Studios in Mystic, Ct and Westerly, RI. She teaches and subs at Ashtanga Yoga Rhode Island.
