Seeking to find balance in body and mind, Laurie became a student of Iyengar yoga in 2001. She has come to know that lessons learned on the mat strongly relate to our personal life challenges and assist us in reaching our greatest potential. Laurie has studied with the Iyengars in Pune, India in 2009 and 2014, and with Geeta Iyengar in Penticton in 2008. She has attended numerous workshops with senior national and international teachers and currently holds her Introductory Level II certification. Laurie continues to be inspired by the depth, intelligence, and transformative nature of the practice and is deeply grateful to the Iyengar family, most notably, Mr. Iyengar (Guruji), who has spread the light of yoga into so many hearts worldwide.
