Laura has been teaching children in many different capacities for the past twenty years. As a preschool classroom teacher, she was looking for a better way to help children learn to manage their bodies and emotions. That is when she found YogaKids and fell in love with the idea of teaching to the whole child. She took the Level 1 training and began to use some of the techniques in classroom and was amazed at how the children responded. After the birth of her second child Laura was able to leave the classroom and she currently is a yoga specialist in a variety of preschools and offers classes to pre-teens and teens in local yoga studios. YogaKids provided her with a way to successfully balance the life of a working mother. Laura continues to love learning and has received her 200 hour adult yoga certificate through Divine Play Yoga. She also has a Ring One Teacher certificate from Circus Yoga and a Stretch What Matters level 1 certificate where she learned about bringing yoga to children with special needs. Children have so much to teach us if we just take the time to stop and listen. As a mother of two girls, Laura is often learning ways to incorporate balance, playfulness and of course the bravery to try new things into her lifestyle.
