Laura was born and raised in Houston. She moved to Austin in 2007 to study Sociology and Psychology at The University of Texas at Austin. She has always been interested in the human condition, what makes people unique and how people connect with each other. During college she worked as a nanny during the school year and a camp counselor in the summer. There she taught water skiing, swim, kayaking and sailing. This is when her love of teaching kids was ignited. Laura went to her first yoga class her senior year of college when her roommate asked her to tag along. After college, she spent year in Italy traveling and working as an Au Pair. When she moved back to Houston, Laura had a variety of jobs, but none that she could see herself doing long term. One constant in her life was her yoga practice as it kept her grounded. When Laura became an Aunt she went to Wisconsin to help her brother and sister-in-law for several weeks. This is when Laura realized she wanted to go back to working with kids and families. During a postpartum doula training her instructor mentioned yoga teaching as a complimentary skill set to have to help pregnant and new moms and it totally clicked! Around this same time, Laura saw a Facebook post by her former high school classmate Abby about an opening at The Little Yoga House for the weekend desk position, so she fell into the world of kids yoga and it was the best fall of her life! It was not long before Laura decided she wanted to also be trained in kids yoga too! She completed her 30 TT at The Little Yoga House in June 2017. She began teaching in September 2017. She also completed her Prenatal and Postnatal TT at Yoga Yoga during the Fall of 2017. In summer 2018 Laura will be traveling to Rishikesh India (the birthplace of yoga) to complete her 200 hour Teacher Training in Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga. In addition to yoga Laura loves being on the water, spending time with her dogs, going on adventures big and small, and crossing places off her travel bucket list! She has actually been to all 50 states! Laura’s favorite yoga pose is Warrior II or Virabhadrasana II.
