As a recovering over-achiever, workaholic and previous dancer,  Laura sought out yoga to help combat the serious health problems her body was experiencing as a result of a decade of major stress and insomnia. She gravitated toward yoga because it reminded her of the similar meditative movement she found when she use to dance. The main difference she discovered between yoga and dance was that yoga encouraged her to respect her body rather than push her body beyond it’s limits. The healing, grounding benefits she received from yoga, in conjunction with how the practice enabled to her connect with her authentic core, was so profound that she decided to change the course of her work life to help others find the same relief and peace she had found through a fluid, meditative vinyasa practice.
 
Laura teaches creative and intelligently sequenced classes. Her classes are invigorating, well-rounded, and have a smooth, rhythmic flow. She is adept at catering to different levels and abilities, ensuring that all of her students feel welcome and at ease. Her extensive studies under Jason Crandell and Shiva Rea taught her smart sequencing and the benefit of fluidity, both of which forged her intuitive, spontaneous and eclectic instruction style.
