Laura’s journey with Yoga started at the age of sixteen as a bonding experience with her sister. Compared to other forms of exercise, she found Yoga to be unique in its effective ability to cultivate both mental and physical wellbeing. While studying Studio Art and Chinese Perspectives of Holistic Health as an undergraduate at SFSU, she completed a 10-month yoga teacher training program at Mind Body Zone, Fremont in 2013. Upon receiving her 200-Hour Hatha Yoga teaching certificate, she was immediately chosen to teach at MBZ and has since taught across the SF Bay Area for over ten different organizations in private studios, corporate organizations, gyms, and wellness centers. In addition to teaching at Rise Bodyworks, Laura also leads a free monthly yoga & meditation program for San Francisco Public Library.
In her classes, you will find opportunities to improve the quality of your breath, learn proper postural alignment, and practice meditation. From her +5 years of experience witnessing the impact of yoga for stress-relief, back-pain-relief, improved range-of-motion, core strength, stamina, flexibility, and more, she advocates yoga as an invaluable investment for disease-prevention and long-term health. Most of all, her motivation comes from all the lives she gets to impact, and the inspiring communities she gets to be part of.
