Laura was born and raised in the cornfields of Iowa. She moved to Los Angeles in 2012 after receiving her BFA in Acting from the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. Laura started practicing yoga in 2007 with her parents in Iowa, and continued to practice regularly throughout college. She made the natural progression into teaching after her practice continued to blossom on the west coast.
She received her 200 hr teaching certification from Yogaworks studying with Carolina Goldberg and Jeanne Heileman, and continued on to her 300 hours with Carolina. She is now an E-RYT 500 certified instructor teaching all around Los Angeles. Laura teaches a variety of classes and workshops, as well as yin yoga trainings for teachers and students. She loves creative sequencing, and particularly enjoys teaching the nuances of the subtle body. Her classes strive to promote balance and a true sense of self, while lovingly pushing the practitioner to explore their edges.
Laura's purpose in teaching yoga is to help each person learn, live, and fully encompass their own element; to balance and open, so each person can recognize and begin to live their fullest potential.
