Hatha Wellness Yoga
Come as you are
leave feeling better.
I established Hatha Wellness Yoga to help you bring wellness into your life. I want you to feel strong, confident, and peaceful, on and off the yoga mat.
I’ve been teaching, coaching, and facilitating wellness as a professional for over 25 years. Now I share yoga as a tool to help people optimize their wellbeing.
Taking care of my body through movement is a lifelong value and I live a very physically active lifestyle. Through regular yoga practice, I experience benefits to my body: weight control, better muscle tone, and improved flexibility. At more subtle levels, yoga offers me the experience of balance between doing and being, activity and stillness, creating a peaceful inner space.
As a seasoned instructor and an older adult, I understand your need to have more than just a workout - it's also important to enjoy the experience, have fun and laugh, meet like-minded people, and be completely confident your teacher is experienced, certified, and competent.
Hatha Wellness Yoga specializes in yoga for beginners. You may be new to yoga, or ready to try it again after a long break. Perhaps you are looking for a smaller sized class to get the individualized attention you need to be safe and comfortable in a yoga class. You might be someone who enjoys being in a class where you know everyone's name and feel a sense of community. Maybe you want to be able to walk or bike to your yoga class through a lovely neighbourhood. You could be looking for a teacher with the training and skill to modify a yoga practice to your particular needs.

Here's what some of my students have to say about my classes:
"Laura makes every yoga class a wonderful experience. She is passionate about teaching and comes well prepared for each class. Laura guides us to be aware of our body's limits, of our breathing and is attentive to every detail to align each yoga pose for optimum benefit and balance. I appreciate that she 'takes the time to explain' by walking us through how to position our legs and feet, hips, shoulders. She believes that everyone benefits from yoga and often refers to her 'bag of tricks' to modify or adapt positions to suit each person's needs. Every yoga session with Laura is therapeutic, relaxing and fun. A good mental and physical experience. "J.Poulin, teacher (retired)
"I love Laura's depth of knowledge and enthusiasm for yoga which motivates me to make my yoga class despite a hectic schedule. Laura also modifies poses to meet my needs and is a wonderful guide on my yoga journey. "
Pat Tymchatyn, Faculty, SIAST
"A most enjoyable and effective yoga class. Always feel much better after attending a class." Jan Spark
"I look forward to Laura’s yoga classes 3 times a week. It has really helped me relax as well as working my core strength. The positive energy I have experienced in her classes has been invaluable!" Bonnie Schwenk, retired from Saskatoon Health Region.
