Born in Switzerland, raised in Connecticut, and grateful to call NYC home, Laura was introduced to the healing effects of mind-body practice during an intensive yoga retreat in Brazil during a transitional time in her life. Upon returning, she was inspired to teach and completed a diversity of yoga teacher trainings.
Like many who come to The Class by Taryn Toomey, she loved what she did, teaching yoga, but felt like something was missing, something deeper. As she found her way through each freeing movement and sequence in The Class, she was transported; everything finally clicked.
Laura’s grounded spirit coupled with a Master in Social Work and years of experience in supporting and counseling women in managing stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, and body image allow her to create a safe and supportive space for students to feel what they need to feel, to move in the ways they need to move, and to find freedom in expressing themselves with their bodies, with their voices, and completely without judgement. Her classes create unique openings for each student to trust the strength and wisdom of their own hearts and intuition.
Engaging, thoughtful, and nurturing, Laura shapes a galvanizing atmosphere where each student can deeply connect within, and without, to do the vulnerable work they are guided to do. She is honored to have an extraordinary purpose in this inspiring, rare community.
