More about the instructor, Laura!
Laura is a Yoga Therapist and licensed Physical Therapist Assistant with a caring and approachable demeanor, whose passion is helping people connect with themselves, their bodies, their intuition and their healing and higher potential through the multidimensional tools of yoga.
Along with her therapeutic expertise, she brings over 20 years of yoga teaching experience to her students plus many more years of personal practice and study. Most notably she studied in depth with the late master TKV Desikachar in her Yoga Therapy Training in Chennai, India. She is honored to bring the healing practices learned from him, to her community. Sarah Powers, Scott Blossom, Donna Farhi and Peter Sterios are amongst other strong influences.
Laura offers classes, workshops, private sessions and retreats locally. She offers a wide variety of classes based in breath, subtle body and core awareness. They are meditative and move at a slow pace, allowing time to explore safe alignment, the somatic embodiment of foundational postures, and connection with ones most authentic true self. Having a background in music she has started integrating sound and singing into some specialty classes as well as monthly Song Circles at Bliss Cafe. Her offerings have been reported to lead students into a deeper listening, connecting with their own body wisdom, healing and heart.
When she is not immersed in the yoga and healing worlds, she can be found having adventures with her husband and two young daughters, dancing (always dancing), enjoying a quiet hike somewhere awe inspiring, or singing in her upbeat band Sōleffect.
She is thrilled to be sharing her offerings at Spirit Winds! See more about her and her offerings here:
“I suffer from lower back pain to due to a spinal fusion at L4 L5. My pain, coupled with the fact that I am male and had never done yoga before made me terrified to try it. I heard about Laura’s INTRO FOR BACK CARE class through a friend and reluctantly decided to give it a try. The moment I met Laura her smile and demeanor put me at ease. Her classes are perfect for those of us with injuries as she provides alternative positions for restrictive poses and encourages movement at your own pace. Thank you Laura for helping to build my confidence back!”
“I have participated in several Yoga for Back Care classes with Laura and very much appreciate her unique approach to yoga, having been involved in yoga practice for more than 30 years. Laura has strengthened my awareness of the deep connection between breath and movement, helped me focus on chakra energy for working through back and leg pain, and has a clear understanding of the body and the needs of her students. I love being able to move slowly and thoughtfully in her classes, and allow myself to heal.”
