“Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self-realization. Yoga means union – the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions.”

Laura is an E-RYT 500 International teacher and featured online yoga teacher for Om Stars, Grokker, Yoga Vibes and My Yoga Works. She is a two-time cover model for Yoga Journal Italy and Singapore, May 2019 cover model for Om Yoga & Lifestyle Magazine, and regular contributor for Yoga Journal USA and Om Yoga & Lifestyle Magazine.
Laura sought out yoga to help combat 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 healing, grounding benefits she received from yoga 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 smart, creative, well-rounded and intelligently sequenced classes. Her classes are invigorating with 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 mentor 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.
In more recent years, Laura has become passionate about educating students and teachers safe alignment and sequencing while still keeping practices fun and creative. She is a strong advocate of teaching and practicing in a way that will last a lifetime.
In addition to her extensive work with Yoga Journal and Om Magazine, Laura has been featured in Mantra Magazine, Origin Magazine and has written for online publications such as Greatist, Refinery 29 and SELF Magazine. She has taught at The Yoga Journal Conference, The Bali Spirit Festival, Yoga Festival Milan, Wanderlust 108, Yoga For Hope and Yoga Rocks the Park and worked as the Yoga Director at the San Francisco Bay Club’s Mind/Body Center. Laura co-led 200-hour teacher trainings with Jason Crandell, and mentors teachers in creating successful public and online teaching careers.
