Laura was introduced to yoga in 2001 after her mother passed away from breast cancer. She found solace in the practice and a way to stay grounded both physically and emotionally. However, it wasn’t until Laura moved to Texas in 2014 that she truly deepened her practice. Amongst a community of yogi warriors, she learned how to exist in the present moment, fully experiencing the connection that happens between mind, body and soul while on the mat. She became a passionate advocate for the practice, encouraging everyone she knew to come and experience the place where everything from the past and future quiets, and a person is able to exist in the NOW. Laura currently owns and operates Luminous Yoga Studio in Burnet, Texas and is grateful to be able to share this passion with her community.
Laura earned her 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certification training under Brad Offutt, a well-practiced and respected Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga© instructor, and has plans to complete her 500-hour certification in Bali in April of 2019. A passionate leader, Laura emboldens others to discover their own true potential through the practice of asana, self-inquiry, and meditation. She believes and honors the mindset that yoga is for EVERYbody and will lead you in a session offering magical, feel-good assists to help you discover unrealized strengths. Her focus is not the attainment of a perfect physical pose, but rather the practice of opening ones heart to the beauty of the journey, a practice that can be found in each day both on and off the mat. At her core, Laura is passionate about awakening people to the infinite possibility that already resides within them while motivating them to dispose of thoughts and behaviors that no longer serve them. In her teaching and presence, it is her sincere intention to be a clear, open channel of love, energy, and opportunity.
