Class schedule:

Laura first stepped onto a yoga mat in 2007 while studying abroad in Australia. She quickly fell in love with the practice as a compliment to her existing fitness and athletic pursuits. Laura was an eager student of all styles from Astanga to Yin. As the years passed Laura began to notice that, for her, the draw of yoga become more about having that time on the mat to connect oneself and the associated feelings of mental calmness than the pursuit of physical improvements. Today, her personal practice involves equal parts Yin and Yang; mediation accompanied by a strong physical practice. Laura pursued her 200 HR Hatha and Yin Yoga training here at Rama Lotus and has loved becoming a ‘student’ again and studying all things yoga from ancient texts to anatomy.

In Laura’s yoga classes she emphasize a safe practice where every student feels in control of their own experience by giving options for more difficult asanas and encouraging students to listen to their bodies instead of their ego. In order for students to be fully present in their mind and bodies, she ensures that breath and movement are always connected. Her background in functional anatomy allows her to develop creative sequences where students feel equally challenged and present. Laura believes it is important to incorporate aspects of pranayama exercise and guided meditation into each class in order to give students the tools they need to deepen their own practice off the mat.
