I’m Laura Gordon, MSW, E-RYT, a Yogi, Healthy Movement Educator, and former Social Worker. I’ve been practicing yoga for 20+ years and teaching yoga since 2001. After studying with some of the country’s master yoga teachers, I found that no one style of yoga worked for every student.
As a former Social Worker, I value the individual needs of clients. In many yoga classes, the student is expected to adapt to the class. I disagree with that. No two bodies are alike and they all have different needs.
I’ve spent the better part of my 40-something years researching the body and how to best promote good health and overall wellbeing. I now use that knowledge to help my clients. My studies of wellness, biomechanics, corrective exercises, and myofascial self-massage add a completely unique dimension to my teachings, allowing me to teach a deconstructed yoga class that will teach you more about your body in one session than months or years of a traditional yoga class.
I call myself an Anatomy Geek and I’ve been referred to as a Body Wiz by my clients. Other yogis, personal trainers, physical therapists, and even orthopedic surgeons refer clients to me because of my understanding of the body and ability to work with issues, large and small.
I don’t just lead clients through poses in a yoga class. I explains the hows and whys of asana and movement. I teach you to better understand your body through yoga, biomechanics, massage therapy balls, and self-care.
It’s your body – think of me as your owner’s manual.
My goal in working with clients is to help you learn how to move better, feel better, & live better! That’s what we all want, isn’t it?
That sounds great, Laura! Can I work with you? Where do I start?
I want to receive free videos and blogs
