Although Lauri has been a yoga practitioner for many years, her passion was truly ignited in 2010 when she embarked on a major life change and yoga helped her find greater health, peace, joy and balance in life. This passion led Lauri to pursue her yoga teaching certificate through Yoga Tree in San Francisco to not only deepen her own practice but learn how to share the amazing gift of yoga with others. She completed her 200 hour certification in summer 2013 and her 500 hour certification in summer 2014. Lauri infuses her classes with love and humor while focusing on the flow of movement with safe, strengthening alignment and connection with breath. She frequently includes music to help set the mood and focus of the class, and she loves to chant.
