Lauri came to yoga in 2001 and immediately connected with the magic of yoga: linking breath with movement not only transforms the body, but the mind and spirit. Coming from a dance, fitness and music background Lauri’s teaching style marries all three while keeping a keen eye on alignment so that her students learn and feel for themselves when the mind, body and soul are aligned, we find connectedness to ourselves and to others that transcends the corners of the mat or the walls of a studio. Lauri completed her 200-hr. House of Shanti teacher training and is certified through Yoga Alliance.
This class was developed as a combination of our hot vinyasa classes and niyama hot yoga. The postures are sequenced to build slowly, open the body in a safe manner, and strengthen body and mind from head to toe. This class set to uplifting tunes, combines flowing sequences and static holds. Suitable for all level students, but modifications are provided for both the newer student and the advanced practitioner. The added heat and humidity in the room promote deep stretching and enhanced mental focus. Classes are heated between 92 and 95 degrees.
