Meet Laurie

a teacher, a mom, a yoga instructor

For over 25 years, I have offered service to children as an elementary, reading recovery, Spanish teacher, literacy instructor, and mother of three sons. I earned my children’s yoga certification in April 2019.

Marrying my passion for literacy yoga training, I created Book Yoga to foster in children a love of reading through specialized classes that combine traditional yoga poses with storylines of children’s books. Together, we will explore balance, flexibility, strength and relaxation through literary experiences.

I have practiced yoga for 7+ years, earned my 200 Hour Yoga certification through UpDog Yoga Studio in Rochester, and I am a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance. Even though I started out teaching children, I was inspired to share the transformative power of yoga with adults as well. Today, I offer both BOOKyoga classes for little ones, and SOULyoga classes for teens/adults. No matter your age or experience, I look forward to helping you on your yoga journey.
