– 6 a.m. 1 HR Hot Yoga Beyond Bikram
– 4:15 p.m. Yoga Basics/Hatha,Balance, Meditation Malaga Cove (Center for Healthy Living Palos Verdes)
– 6:15 p.m. Prenatal @ Torrance Memorial Medical Center

– 4:30 p.m. 90 min Hot Yoga Beyond Bikram

– 6:15 p.m. 1 HR Hot Yoga Beyond Bikram

– 5:45 p.m. Restorative The Well Manhattan Beach



Laura’s spiritual curiosity, and her desire to lead a balanced life with optimal health, increased joy, and more adventure, led her to earn 600 hours of yoga alliance teaching certifications. She is trained to teach vinyasa, hatha, restorative, yin, therapeutic, hot, prenatal, and meditation. Her certifications are with: Mutki Yoga SchoolTamal Dodge, owner of Yoga Salt, and Tiffany Friedman, founder of Yogamunity, and former, longtime Bikram partner. Additionally, Laura has attended the following retreats to expand her consciousness:  Marianne Williamson‘s 2018 New Years Eve Course in Miracles, Ratna Ling‘s 2018 Introduction to Buddhism, and Mike Dooley‘s (author of Notes from the Universe) immersive week in Peru, and trained as an apprentice with futurist and intuitive author Louse Hauck. She has worked for many years with Torrance Memorial Medical center, introducing yoga and meditation to many who are overcoming injury and illness. Her work with those who are battling cancer has affected Laura the most. She is now a firm believer in the strength of thoughts, the healing power of breath, and the magic of meditation to remove obstacles and manifest dreams.


Why did Laura add so much yoga and yoga teaching to her writing life? Because yoga helps her breathe through anxiety and fear, stay present with her kids, and tap into her creative and intuitive nature. A yoga practice also allows writers to maintain a healthy back and posture (to sit for hours without injury!). Whether you are a writer who juggles raising a family, other work commitments, and finding time to write—or a full-time writer who sits alone in front of a computer for hours every day—Yoga provides a much-needed physical break and social outlet with supportive, mindful people who believe in setting intentions and striving to reach them. Yoga is for everyone, at every age (Beach photo was shot at age 46). It is a powerful tool emotionally, spiritually, and physically to help any artist manifest.


Laura is thrilled to launch B. T. W. Yoga & Writers Retreats.

B. T. W. stands for Breathe. Travel. Write. It’s the perfect combination to open channels, release fear, tap into intuitive creativity, and gain: clarity, inspiration, support, confidence, and enthusiasm for this career path that can often be isolating. Laura hosted her first yoga & writers retreat in Greece, in the summer of 2017 with many of her restorative yoga students and yoga & writer workshop attendees. The next retreat will be held May 23-30 2020 in Tuscany, co-hosted with Literary Agent and author Paula Munier.  A 2020 Maui New Years retreat is being planned! Bess Cozby, author, creator of DIY MFA, and editor with Tor/Forge, a subsidiary of Macmillan, will lead writer workshops. Check back in for more details. Please send a direct message to Laura for rates and information.

Have a blessed day.
