Meet a Westsider:
Laura Hymers Treglia

Profession/Occupation... Feldenkrais practitioner and dancer. I first learned about Feldenkrais as a dancer in New York City and found the work extremely beneficial in my recovery from a neck and shoulder injury. It is a method of learning that can improve quality of life by experiencing greater awareness of how you move.

What I like most about the Westside is... being walking distance from Old Colorado City, while just a hop, skip and jump from the mountains.

If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be... to have local authorities take action on condemned homes that were used as meth labs.

A good movie I’ve seen recently is... not so recent, but I loved “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” A great story of love and it’s wonderful to see dance in a film.

I'd like to discover... how to dance forever.

If I could meet someone famous, I’d like to meet... I’d rather get together with friends that live thousands of miles away.

The next time I travel, I’m going to... have my hands full with all the gear that goes with a 5-month-old baby!

My favorite childhood memory is... camping and boating with my family in the beautiful Thousand Islands region of New York along the St. Lawrence River.

My favorite summer pastime is... eating peaches from the Farmers Market.

Something good I’ve read is.. All my reading is parenting books at the moment. One of these is “The Attachment Parenting Book,” by Dr. William and Martha Sears – a great reminder that as a parent you are building a relationship and trust is an invaluable ingredient.

My pet peeve is... The type of rudeness that is my pet peeve is when people don't care in the least how their actions impact others. For example, a person throwing trash out the car window. That person is only thinking about himself.

If I didn’t have to work for a year I would... continue to work at being mom and attend advanced Feldenkrais trainings around the world.
