Laurie has a Masters of Kinesiology with special emphasis in both Geriatric Exercise Physiology and Orthopedic Corrective Exercise. In her research Laurie specialized in sarcopenia, bone mass density, and the ability to assess suboptimal movement patterns from the platform of biomechanics. Laurie has developed an approach thatintegrates principles of functional movement, anatomy, biomechanics, balance, and stability into classical asana instruction.
Laurie’s approach was keenly sumarized by one of her longtime student
One of Laurie’s long-time students says, Laurie’s approach to yoga combines ancient teachings with contemporary science in a way that makes asana practice meaningful in the modern world. With sensitivity and a good sense of humor she blends her deep and growing knowledge of the mechanics of the human body with the traditions of hatha yoga to provide practices that extend beyond the yoga studio into daily life.
Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.
