Laurie's career has centered around movement. As an accomplished competitive diver and synchronized swimmer, she discovered the buoyant serenity of 3D movement within a fluid and soon after began applying that knowledge to her years as a professional dancer. From dance, Laurie developed an acute awareness of the human body and how it lives, breathes and moves. Yoga became a natural bend in her path. She is certified as a yoga teacher, massage therapist and therapeutic yoga practitioner. Her 45 years of experience working with the human body has given her a large repertoire of techniques and an uncanny intuitive sense of what works for each individual to recover from injury or illness and re-establish well-being.
"...deep breathing, stretching, movements that release muscle tension, relaxed focus on being present in your body, allow the healing mechanisms to turn on."
