Laurie Donelson

Starting my yoga journey 19 years ago was a way to bring more balance into my life. As a wife and mother of 2 boys, busy raising a family with all the activities and stresses that go along with parenting, I found yoga. Initially it was a way to relieve my chronic back pain and strengthen my body to avoid further injuries caused by high impact activities. Through yoga, I found that it also helped me calm my mind and increase my mental acuity.

After experiencing such positive personal results, I decided to share my experience with others. My training began in August 2012, with the Live Love Teach Yoga instructor training, in which, I completed my 200-hour certification. In 2015 I continued training and received my 500-hour yoga instructor certificate through Free Life People and The Yoga Project School of Yoga. In September of 2017 I was privileged to travel to Thailand and assist with a Yoga Instructor certification training with the Yoga Project School of Yoga. I enjoy attending continuing education training and seminars, and feel that constant learning improves my own practice, as well as helps my clients achieve their best yoga practice.
