LAURA JOHANNA YOGA
BREATH, MOVEMENT, & INNER EXPLORATIONS
MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
I recognize that as a thin, white, able-bodied cisgender woman, I've benefited from immense privileges in traditional yoga asana classes, and much of my work as a yoga educator now centers around breaking down the real and perceived barriers others encounter when trying to build a safe connection to their body and movement practices.
My classes combine elements of deep inner and outer exploration with the modern-day application of ancient yogic teachings. I aim to create a space where all students, even those brand new to the practice or with physical challenges, feel grounded, supported, empowered, and tapped into their own internal wisdom.
I seek to hold a welcoming space for all practitioners regardless of race, class, gender, sexuality, body type, and age.
These practices have gifted me with a sense of constant wonder and awe at this life and its intelligent evolution. I'm grateful to all of my many teachers and indebted to these South Asian practices for lighting my way for many years.
