Laurel is a yoga gypsy who loves exploring land and sea. She has always had the travel bug, but only fell in love with yoga 11 years ago. After completing her Master’s Degree in Business, while working full-time, she knew she needed a shift mentally and physically. At that point, she stepped into a yoga class and onto her mat; yoga changed her life forever. Within a year, she completed her 200 hour training and then within another she left her job to pursue a career in yoga. Shortly after, she completed an additional 300 hours of training, a Pilates Mat training, and a Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga Training.
Her passion to always learn more led her to working with Sadie Nardini. She spent hours soaking up anatomy knowledge from Sadie as well as learning the business of yoga. She had the honor of traveling the world with Sadie as her lovely sidekick for more than two years.
Her teaching style encourages you to move with attention to alignment and core stability while maintaining a fluid breath cycle. Laurel's approach allows you to progress to the next level of your practice, while using your core to find balance, stability and openness. Each yoga class is a reflection of everyday life; challenges in class will require you to maintain the integrity of your core, your true being.
Laurel’s heart is rooted in her hometown of Bethlehem, PA, with her husband, Josh, and chi-weenie/sidekick, Zeek. Her love for travel and adventure keeps her teaching yoga, paddle boarding, hiking, running, tasting healthy vegan food and sipping wine and cocktails all over the globe. She loves helping others seek the beauty within and the beauty throughout the world. Join her locally, globally or online.

DESCRIBE YOUR UNIQUE VALUE ADD AS A TEACHER. WHAT ABOUT YOUR STYLE MAKES YOU STAND OUT?
I keep things light. Life can be way too serious and our days are often way too stressful to not laugh and smile. When we smile and laugh, positive energy flows within and without. I hope my students gain strength, but also a sense of lightness after my class.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR INTENTION IN BEING A PART OF THE LOCAL COLLECTIVE OF GATHERYOGA?
I hope to help others gain strength, length and lightness throughout my classes. I also help to expand my reach and also provide my local students with more opportunities to practice with me.
