A firm believer that yoga will meet you where ever you are at, Laura first discovered yoga as a physical exercise in her 20's, however it wasn't until she reached her 30's, when yoga returned to her life, that it's spiritual practice started to take center stage. As her practice developed Laura became more and more aware of the subtle changes in energy within the body that yoga created, working to unravel deeper layers of self, connecting with her inner teacher and releasing her own limiting beliefs through a consistent committed practice.
Influenced greatly by her teachers Meghan Currie, Erin Kelly and Steph Gongora, Laura’s practice is fluid, playful, strong and graceful. Connecting with the breath and losing the ego in the movement, in order to connect with a higher aspect of self is always the intention in the practice. A moving meditation, riding the breath of consciousness and allowing the practice to touch deeper levels.
Having studied anatomy extensively Laura is passionate about creating functional active mobility that benefits the practitioner for movement in everyday life. Working with fascia lines and creating the lotion that comes with motion to enable you to lead your best most active life.
Laura strives to share the joys of the physical and spiritual practice of yoga, to help people find peace and balance in their lives. Her teaching style is to use visual, oral and physical adjustments in order to ensure you have the best alignment and a safe, well balanced practice.
