Due to a recent spine surgery, I am on the road to recovery and will return to teaching yoga as soon as my body is ready. Thank you- family, friends, yoga community, and readers- for all the loving messages of support, wishes of health, and smiles you bring.
Healing is an art. It takes time, it takes practice. It takes love.

Born and raised in Oakland, California I have dedicated my life to the service of others from a 30 year career in the hospitality industry, work in higher education, and fundraising. Now, through teaching yoga, I am honored to continue my service to others.
As an adult survivor of child abuse, I initially turned to the yoga studio because it was the only place I felt safe and welcome to arrive just as I was- the same still stands today. Through asana I was able to settle my mind, care for my body, and recuperate the trauma I suffered. Now, through Yoga Teacher Training (200 RYT from Yoga Kula) and the study of meditation, I can wholeheartedly say I have found compassion, equanimity, and purpose- it is my deep desire to share a practice that is accessible for all beings in order to provide a safe space to ease past traumas.
I am honored to practice with you as we continue to grow and learn together. In addition to Yoga4theReason, I also write about life and the pursuit of sober happiness at ForTheReason.blog.
Mom, wife, friend, former marathon runner, health and wellness enthusiast, Yogi: all 100% Laura. My journey is never complete and each step taken provides yet another reason behind my “why”- join me on this path and let’s explore our reasons together…
