Laurel began exploring yoga while in college.  After years of ballet and modern dance, she was introduced to yoga and meditation through an Experiential Anatomy class.  She found a sense of body and a sense of calm that was much needed during college.  She’s been returning to her mat ever since.

Laurel is finishing up her 200 hr RYT through Svasta Yoga School in Houston, TX at Sama Yoga.  From the beginning, she has been focused on alignment and embodied exploration.  Yoga is only as helpful as it is able assist you off your mat. Laurel’s classes encourage you to be mindful of your experience on the mat to help bring awareness to the subconscious tendencies we all have in our bodies.

Laurel serves as the social media manager for Sama Yoga and can often be found working in the studio with a matcha latte.
