Yoga is not for the flexible. It’s for the willing
2019 Class Schedule
Gentle Evening Flow
This class is held at a slower pace, suitable for beginners and all levels, in a supportive environment. Especially beneficial for those looking to improve flexibility and release tension.
Breathing techniques and meditation are also integrated.
Yoga for Community
This is my new project – Yoga for Community at the Public Library. These classes are free and the intention is to offer yoga to those who might not afford to go to classes. Because yoga is for everybody.
Yin Yoga Classes
Yin yoga is a slower paced class with long-held passive poses doing wonders for joint health, flexibility, circulation, and mental focus. The passive floor poses mainly work the lower part of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. The practice is challenging without using force or muscular strength. Yin is a wonderful complement to any Yang practice, workout, or running program.
One to one yoga classes
One to one teaching is the optimal way to adapt yoga to the individual student.
The first class will start with a discussion, to allow me to get to know you and to understand your aims, needs and abilities. Your practice will be designed to help you reach a goal.
Laura is a fantastic teacher with great attention to breath, flow and correct alignment. I really enjoyed her fabulous class and feel refreshed and free in my body afterwards. I would definitely recommend! Thanks again Laura
I usually go to the gym so when I saw Laura's event I said I'll give Yoga a try. I love it, I really think that a combination of Gym and Yoga would be beneficial to everybody
Laura's classes are an oasis of tranquility in a busy week. Laura demonstrates a deep knowledge of yoga and leads each session in a calm and thoughtful manner that always challenges the body while relaxing the mind. The guided meditation at the end of each session helps me achieve a level of deep relaxation that is hard to reproduce elsewhere. I leave each class feeling very relaxed, well stretched and looking forward to the next session. I highly recommend Laura's yoga classes as a form of exercise and to relieve some of the stresses of everyday life.
“Yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in. And this is the point of spiritual practice; to make us teachable; to open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are.” — Rolf Gates
3 Reasons To Practice Yoga At A Studio (Instead Of With A Laptop)
Doing yoga at home in front of a screen might be convenient, but in my opinion, it’s far less effective and could potentially lead to injury.
By coming together in the sacred space of the studio, we connect and support each other, even in the most difficult of postures. In Buddhism, the sangha, or community, is one of the three treasures that practitioners look toward for guidance and take refuge in during difficult times.
A good yoga teacher is not simply following a script, he/she is continually scanning the room and examining every body shape to see where students are lacking. The verbal instructions are then customized exactly to what the room — and each body in the room — actually needs.
It is extremely easy to get distracted at home. Yes, you unroll your mat, you start your practice and then you find yourself distracted by your phone, your kids, etc.
By removing the distractions of home and joining others in a dedicated space, your personal practice gets strengthened as well.
