Laura Peskoe, MSW, E-RYT has been practicing yoga since the early 1990′s and teaching since 2001. Diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1999, she understands how pain can impact your life. Drawing on the many schools she has studied, including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Prajna, Forrest and Bikram, Yoga Tune-Up and even Biomechanics, Laura collaborates with Physical Therapists and Orthopedic Surgeons to help clients avoid surgery and become pain-free. She has extensive experience working with clients whose back issues range from congenital to herniated disks, spinal fusions, and back surgeries.
Laura is very supportive in her teaching and takes alignment seriously but she also has a sense of humor and is often playful (possibly mischievous) in her teaching. It helps to laugh when you realize your foot is trying to go WHERE?! Laura’s goal in working with her clients is to help them to be smarter about their bodies, safer in how they use them and stronger than they thought possible!
