Laura was born in Switzerland, raised in Connecticut, and is grateful to call NYC home. She was introduced to the healing effects of a mind-body practice during an intensive yoga retreat in Brazil during a transitional time in her life. Upon returning she decided that she wanted to teach and completed various yoga teacher trainings. She loved teaching yoga but still felt like something was missing. When she found her way into The Class By Taryn Toomey, everything finally clicked.
Laura’s grounded spirit, coupled with a Masters in Social Work and years of clinical experience in supporting and counseling women in managing stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and body image concerns allows her to create a safe and supportive space for her students. She guides them to gain deeper self-awareness and to connect to the amazing wealth of information and strength stored within oneself. Her classes are engaging, thoughtful and nurturing. Laura is honored to be part of this incredible, inspiring, and beautiful community.
Outside of teaching The Class, Laura works at a private practice providing holistic and mindfulness-based psychotherapy, teaches yoga privately, and leads yoga for cancer classes at CancerCare.
