Thinking Outside The Mat…
Laurie has been practicing yoga for almost twenty years and teaching/training for well over a decade. She has worked with special populations including seniors, pre/post natal mommies, at-risk youth, and eating disordered/addiction recovery individuals, as well as top athletes from the Los Angeles Lakers and Oscar-winning actors.
Yoga and Fitness are Laurie’s passion, and it is her quest to make yoga and fitness accessible to all people, regardless of physical or schedule limitations. She loves to study, question, reflect, and share as much as she can, be it how to lose 20 pounds, or the proper way to train for your first 5K or Ultramarathon. She is continually learning from her students and grateful to be of service.
Laurie leads teacher trainings and mentorships in studios across the country, and internationally at the Yoga Alliance Approved 200 & 500-Hour Level in Hatha Vinyasa Flow through the Sphota Yoga School.
She is the founder of F.E.D. (Fight Eating Disorders), a 501c3 humanitarian non-profit organization offering assistance for those suffering from eating disorders who are unable to afford medical support. A portion of all teacher trainings go toward the support of F.E.D.
Laurie is also the creator and writer of the comic strip, Lady Yoga, Superhero, featured monthly in LA Yoga Magazine, Miami Yoga Magazine and MyYogaScene.com. She is the author of the soon to be published, ‘Superhero Yoga, Above And Beyond The Mat’, teaching people how to tap into their inner superhero every day.
