Laurie’s calm presence and sense of humour create a space of light heartedness, acceptance, a safe haven from our busy lives. Whether doing an intense, fiery practice, slow flow or yin, students come out of the Laurie’s classes feeling completely cared for and rejuvenated.
Classes are based on the energy she feels at any given time in the room. She adapts the pace and flow of her sequences to the seasons – making them either slower or more energizing depending on the time of the year. Laurie’s love of alignment, appreciation for the uniqueness of each student’s practice and range of motion, and her expertise for assisting make her class a truly complete experience.
Laurie’s first Hatha Teacher training was completed at the renowned Kripalu Centre. That same year she also completed training with David Swenson in the Ashtanga primary series. Laurie has continued training since then with many master teachers, including Advanced Pranayama, Yoga for Depression and Anxiety, Therapeutics among others Todd Norian has been one of her most inspirational teachers to this day. She will always be a student first and foremost, and is passionate in the areas of anatomy, alignment, pranayama and opening to grace.
