Group & Individual Sessions
Laurie strongly believes that Yoga can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age, size, or other limitations. Yoga is a workout for the whole body, inside and out. It stretches and strengthens the mind just as much as it does the muscles and internal organs. It cleanses and restores as well as renews the body and the spirit, preparing you to live a full, balanced and mindful life of joy and celebration.
If you have never tried Yoga, then these sessions are for you. If you have been practicing for years and wish to deepen your practice, let’s get together. My vast experience in many styles of Yoga, pranayama (breathing), and meditation will suit your needs. I create a relaxed, un-intimidating environment for you to play, explore, and advance your greatest gift: yourself.
So many studios, so little time! For an update on my weekly public class schedule throughout the city, hop on my email list by contacting me.
Laurie aka Lady teaches Meditation at the beautiful Unplug Meditation Studio in Santa Monica. Her schedule is here.
She uses visualization, storytelling, japa (mantra), pranayama (breathing), chakra (energy) and tactile or kinesthetic (touch) meditation. Meditation and breathing is the basis of all of her teachings and any way she can keep you in a space of focused concentration so you can leave room to contemplate, resonate and radiate your highest purpose and passion from a place of clarity - she’ll bring it on and bang the gong.
Mat Pilates is a great way to get to the CORE of things. Strengthening from the inside out, you’ll feel longer and leaner in one session. Training sessions add strength and cardio to keep the heart healthy and the body fit. Programs include everything from nutritional guidance and weight loss to training for your first race and healing from injuries.
Take your coffee or lunch break with some invigorating and strengthening Yoga postures and breathing techniques to release stress. Half-hour to full hour sessions are available at your office for one executive or the whole team. Contact me for more details.
Many of my clients have little time to spend with their best pal or even their spouse. Time for Two is a great way to get together with your best friend to stretch, strengthen, and reconnect. Ask about my picnic special.
Eating disorders and addiction are a disconnection between mind and body, a coping mechanism to help control anxiety and depression, and provide an escape from pain and other negative feelings. Fortunately, resources such as counselors, nutritionists, and the integration of yoga can help reconnect the mind and body by turning down the noise of the outside world and turning up the volume of one’s inner needs.
In a yoga class we learn to shut out the distractions of the mind and look inward. It is the practice of letting go of negative thoughts attached to our daily challenges so we can rebuild our relationship with ourselves. Challenging practitioners to stay in the present moment, yoga can help students flow through the pain associated with their disorder/addiction so they may work through it.

Find your individuality and define your deepest wishes, goals, and dreams. We begin with deep breathing and seated stretches to get focused. We decorate our visualization journals with pictures we can draw or collect from magazines. We create spirit statements that we can look to whenever we need inspiration or motivation. Each girl will leave with her own personal visualization journal and spirit statement to use daily to record her progress toward her goals.

Long day on the set? I'll bring bliss to your busy production or on location. Private and group instruction available.
Kitchadi is a savory staple dish in the Indian culture. I am a big believer in Ayurveda, "the science of life", as a great tandem to living and being yoga.
Ayurveda provides an integrated approach to preventing and treating illness through lifestyle interventions and natural therapies. Kitchadi is just one of the recommendations. It is a sattvic or tri-balanced food for all body types, tastes and nutrients providing the perfect combination of fat, protein and carbohydrates. It is 100% vegetarian, natural and wholesome and provides a great base for your favorite vegetables and other dishes. It's delish!
