After being diagnosed at age 12 with an "S" curve, Lauri did not have her first experience with yoga until she was in high school in Iceland in 1975. Over the next 3 decades she experimented with all types of dance, yoga and exercise to control her scoliosis pain. Not until 2000 when she found a chiropractor/yoga instructor who helped her develop a personalized yoga practice, did she realize you could use yoga to change your scoliosis and create a new idea about yourself. Inspired by this concept, Lauri went on to receive her 200 hr interdisciplinary yoga teacher certification and then continued to seek out therapeutic practices in different yoga disciplines. In December of 2005, Lauri completed her "Yoga for Scoliosis" training with Elise Miller. Since then she has been working with students privately and in therapeutic yoga classes to share this knowledge.
"This practice has had such a profound effect on my life I hope to share it with as many people as possible."
Lauri is registered with the Yoga Alliance as a 500 level Interdisciplinary teacher. She is a level 2 Reiki Practitioner, Pranassage Practitioner, Henna and studio artist and a member of the International Yoga Therapist Association. She works primarily in Southern Maryland but offers classes, workshops and private sessions throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
