Laura was certified in 2007 in Beginning Hatha Yoga at the Shambhava School of Yoga at the ashram on the Big Island of Hawai'i. She has been an avid and enthusiastic practitioner of all forms of yoga, and has been blessed to study and mentor at close range with some of the best yoga teachers in the world today including; John Friend, Sianna Sherman, Janet Stone and Shiva Rea among others. She journeyed deep into Classical Tantric philosophy, and the study of the sanskrit language with the Mattamayura Institute through her primary philosophy teacher Christopher 'Hareesh' Wallis, whose mission is to educate yoga students in the West about Yoga as a complete spiritual path. Shakti now actively fuses the world of Classical Tantra, mythology and asana with other forms of somatic movement, and cyclic earth wisdom. 

Laura's yoga classes offer creative, ceremonial and self-informed sequences that focus in on the pulse of erotic creativity expanding from the belly of the earth, through the belly of the practitioner. She skillfully weaves insightful anecdotes of Tantric philosophy and indigenous wisdom that profoundly applies to our present day world.
