Laura is originally from Cherry Hill, New Jersey. At the young age of 3, she was put into gymnastics classes and immediately a spark for fitness was ignited. By the age of 14, she was commuting into Philadelphia to train in modern dance and ballet where she performed alongside a professional company. Laura graduated cum laude from The Boston Conservatory at Berklee where she received a BFA in Contemporary Dance Performance with an emphasis in Pedagogy. In addition to dance, Laura also has a passion for Circus Arts and trained handbalancing pre-professionally in Boston.
After graduating in 2015, Laura moved to Los Angeles in hopes of discovering where her true path led (and also for the lovely weather of course!) Yoga has always been a part of her life whether it’s been manifested through cross training, mental detoxification, or the need to bring movement to her body that day. From the moment she walked through the doors of Hot 8 Yoga, she knew that she had found her new home. Laura completed her Yoga Barre certification in 2016 under the guidance of Nancy Norby, Deanna Ainsworth, and mentor, Briana DeFalco. She is so thankful to have found a place that resonates so deeply with her personal beliefs.
Through her classes, Laura aims to enlighten, encourage, and connect with each one of her students. She uses her deep passion for music to create playlists that drive the class forward and stimulate her students to persevere. By the end of class, Laura hopes to have instilled within her students a newfound respect for his or her body and just how far you can push yourself. We all hold so much more power than we are aware of.
