Laurel’s first experience with yoga was in 2012. She was amazed at the way it helped her cope with the stress and pressure of life as a college student. 2 years later, she decided to embark on the journey of yoga teacher training through Jennilee Toner’s Hot Warrior Yoga. In 2017 she completed her 500 hour teacher training through Jennilee’s Inner Sanctum teacher program. She has also attended a 100 hour Barkan level 2/3 training. Laurel also holds a certificate in graduate studies in Mindfulness. She is the co-founder of Holistic Youth Project, an organization aiming to empower the youth of the capital region with yoga, mindfulness, and self care practices. She has also completed Lauren Toolin’s Yoga for kids teacher training. Laurel has completed level 1 and 2 in Reiki Healing Touch through The Art of Reiki and is currently working on her personal training certification. Her class is designed to acknowledge the physicality of asana while still focusing on yogic philosophy and self inquiry. Laurel’s aim is always to create a safe space for you to explore and evolve.
