I'm Laura, a Long Island based E-RYT 200 Yoga Instructor & Artist. My hope is that as I share my story it speaks to you as though we've met in person. This is how I share my heart and this is how I share Yoga.

As I look back, more than 10 years ago, at my first experience with Yoga & Meditation I can only describe it today as an act of Grace. From a young age I suffered with depression & anxiety. I had no clue what Yoga was but I loved to dance and spend time in nature. in my late teens I started doing pilates and tried running. I realize after many years that this is how I tried to regulate my thinking and emotions yet I was always left with a longing for so much more, a sense of uneasiness and disconnection.

This is all too common. Many of us live day to day feeling separate from ourselves, our own bodies, lives and communities. Yoga, meaning "Union" is a practice that provides movement with depth that not only got me into my body but into my heart and soul as well. What I received and continue to receive are practices that nourish and support me in connecting to and transforming myself and my life.

I believe we all have the ability to overcome adversity, to move beyond survival and embrace a life where we can thrive. Since 2014 I've been teaching privately in home and have taught in yoga studios, by donation in parks, with corporate wellness programs and in a sober home for formerly incarcerated women. I have the honor of working with United We Om, a local non-profit providing Yoga & Meditation to underserved communities and as an Advisor to the Board for their Addiction Recovery Programs and as a Karma Yogi in Residence. Over the years I've found that no matter your background, level of experience or the setting you practice in, a yoga & meditation practice support a reduction in stress, help to improve mental and emotional clarity & focus and provides an overall greater sense of joy, wellbeing, empowerment & hope. 

With an additional training and 100 hours of certification in Alignment Therapeutics, 100+ hours of Yoga and Addiction Recovery certification and Trauma Informed Yoga certification it is an honor to offer these practices to support you on your journey. I look forward to working with you on your path of well-being.
