My name is Laurie and I am a young certified vinyasa yoga instructor teaching prenatal, post-natal, fertility and kids yoga. I have a deep love
of the mind and body benefits of yoga, and cherish its simultaneous calming and stimulating properties. I am also passionate about wellness, conscious living and holistic health. I enjoy contributing to the health
and happiness of those who take my classes, and am continuously striving to allow my students the experience of deep relaxation, patience, strength, flexibility and overall well-being.
As a yoga teacher, my intention is to give something and share in every class I teach. I want to nurture and support my community by providing
a safe and special place where we can all open our hearts, strengthen
our bodies and refresh our mind so we can move through life with love and light. Off the mat I try to live as consciously as possible reminding myself to be aware of my thoughts and actions as much as possible throughout the day.
