Laura - @lightloveyogini
Originally from Atlanta, GA, USA, Laura has been living in New Zealand for the past year and a half. She enjoys living a sustainable life, being connected to nature and the self. With Laura's flow, you can expect a safe sequence, emphasizing the importance of the spine, while working towards calming the fluctuations of the mind. She is very passionate about meditation, whole-food eating, and yoga.
Her journey with yoga began in 2012, it quickly grew into a strong passion. She taught weekly yoga classes and led group meditations at her former office job, before realising that teaching was something she was serious about doing. She completed her 200 hour yoga teaching training in Bali, Indonesia earlier this year and is eager to help you come into your own practice.
Born and raised in Auckland, I started my dance journey at 4 years old and haven’t stopped ever since. I’ve given almost every type of dance a try, from ballet to hip hop to capoeira, rhythmic gymnastics, ballroom dancing and even highland dancing (from Scotland with the kilts and all) but I had always loved contemporary dance the most as it let me express my own unique movement style. Then in 2013 while living in Nelson, I found pole at Pole Artistry and absolutely fell in love with the sport. I’ve had a vision ever since of fusing my contemporary dance style with pole to create something completely uniquely Me and can’t wait to share it with all the students at Onyx and help them find their own dance style.
