I had the pleasure of working with Laura in a mentorship capacity. Putting my 20 years of teaching experience to use in mentoring is one of my passions. I took Laura under my wing and we worked closely together for almost a year.
Her highly professional standards stood out immediately. She was drawn to my way of teaching because of my focus on anatomy, alignment and body mechanics. Laura's confidence grew and she made a point of connecting with students, is warm in her interactions and quickly gains students' trust. Laura is a committed yoga practitioner, which is the first sign of a good yoga instructor. Through her extended practice Laura has the capacity for challenging asana work but is able to scale it to meet the ability of all students. She has continued to deepen her studies in pranayama and philosophy. Laura’s passion for yoga is deep and anyone who practices with her will be touched with the same spark.
I am truly honoured to have had a small part in Laura's development and I wouldn't hesitate to take her classes - for fun and challenge.
Laura has a natural ability to make anyone feel confident in his or her yoga practice. I was able to follow the class easily and with confidence. I did not realize I was capable of being in certain positions so comfortably- the class flowed just so effortlessly, and I could tell my body was really working. I left feeling energized with my mind relaxed with mental clarity. Laura truly has a gift in her yoga practice and is able to transfer her great energy to the ones who are willing to take it in. Thank you.
Laura's classes have a nice flow where I'm physically challenged and at the same time she encourages a deep sense of awareness that comes from within
I have only taken yoga for about two years now so I'm rather new to the yoga world. In my past I used to be a dancer and I took many years of dance instruction, in a wide variety of dance and teacher styles. It's not easy to find an instructor who can plan their classes with the right balance of challenge and fun. Or who gives the perfect cues to help your brain transform the idea into a physical movement or pose. So when I met Laura, I knew right away she was an amazing instructor. Her teaching, her flows, her observations and adjustments are simply outstanding. Laura has helped me improve my yoga technique immensely, taking my oh-no-plank-to the floor into to an enjoyable chatturanga. With Laura I have learned to do a head stand, improving my balance poses and my hip alignment. It's a pleasure to have her as a teacher.
Laura is an outstanding Yoga instructor, who gives meticulous instructions and modifications in order to get into Yoga poses correctly. She also provides very precise adjustments, which enabled me to feel the proper alignment of my body in the poses. In addition, she created a series of specific themed classes which centered around the 7 distinct chakras, which helped me to unleash some stuck and blocked energy in various parts of my body. Laura has an energetic and vital personality, that always inspired me to be more present, and to give my very best effort towards my Yoga practice, no matter how stressed out, or tired I was feeling. I would highly recommend her classes to anyone who is seeking on being challenged, as well as going deeper within.
I’ve been attending Laura’s yoga classes very regularly over the last two years. She obviously has a deep commitment to yoga and takes her practice very seriously. Laura is a gifted teacher who leads and presents in a way that is always helpful and nurturing to students of all levels

I love Laura and her classes. She is one of the most confident teachers who knows what’s she is doing. Her adjustment touch is my favorite. I never felt as safe As her adjustment. It is very accurate and she always comes help me when I need it. She is also a super cheering person outside studio too, making my day super bright when I see her
Laura is one of the best yoga teachers in the city! She creates a warm and welcoming environment for all of her students, while sharing her knowledge of anatomy to help her students learn how to get the most out of their yoga practice and avoid injury. Expect a fun and dynamic class! Can’t wait for the next one :)
I have gone to different yoga classes across Toronto with my Passport to Prana card, and out of all of them Laura’s classes have always challenged me in a good way. She makes sure to keep an eye out on everyone to help them with their form, and the way she has improved mine in certain poses, has been a big takeaway for any time I’ve practiced on my own. She also has a very soothing voice, and good choice of music to go with the flow!
Laura has a natural ability as a yoga teacher. She brings a depth and a warm sincerity to her classes: as a nurse, she has full knowledge of anatomy; as a passionate yoga teacher, she is aware of the body’s energy and spiritual levels and the potential that lies within. Her instructions are clear, oriented towards the various levels, and complimented by her calm, compassionate voice. Anyone who attends Laura’s classes will come away feeling rejuvenated in both body and spirit, and grateful for the gifts that yoga practice brings to their lives.
Laura is a caring and challenging instructor who has improved my yoga practice a great deal. She has helped me push beyond my preconceived limitations and refine my asanas. She is open and enthusiastic and her classes are creative, tough, and fun!
Laura is an amazing and passionate teacher, whose dedication to yoga goes beyond simple fitness to a place growth physically, mentally, and spirituality. Her enthusiasm has made me truly love yoga as a life long passion.
I had not done yoga for years and felt the need to try it out again. I went to Laura’s class to stretch and hopefully gain back my flexibility. It was a little intimidating getting myself to the class but once I was in there working with Laura, I felt comfortable, relaxed and encouraged to come back sooner. I was back the next week!!
Laura is a truly unique yoga teacher. She is deeply passionate and genuine about yoga and she truly cares about her students. She understands the power of yoga, is devoted to the practice, and is generous with her knowledge. She regularly works to deepen her knowledge and expand her skills. I always feel more connected to my body and breath after Laura’s classes. There are few in the yoga community I would hold in as a high a regard as Laura.
Laura establishes a warm and welcoming environment in her classes. She is a thoughtful and knowledgable instructor with a holistic approach to yoga. Laura's cues are clear and demonstrations are most helpful. She gives individual attention. I look forward to her classes and learn something new each time.
Laura has been one of the best instructors I've come across in the past year and half. Her classes are always a good challenge and learning experience. Her focus and passion for doing yoga well is a true rarity. Not to be missed!
