Laurel Yoga Studio logo

Welcome to the Laurel Yoga Studio, where classes are rooted in traditional yoga practice and informed by modern neuromotor understanding. We offer a holistic self-awareness approach to yoga which includes physical, mental and spiritual cultivation. Due to the Covid Pandemic, classes have been moved online. We still offer individual bodywork and private Feldenkrais® sessions under certain conditions. LYS is the home of the Fluid Strength Yoga Practice™.

All Classes Available on Zoom

Fall is a transitional season which can make us vulnerable to illness. With the current health, social and political challenges that are adding additional stress and tension to lives, there is an even greater need to take good care of ourselves. All of the classes at the Laurel Yoga Studio are restorative in nature and each of the three teachers has her unique way of strengthening the immune system and deepening a sense of well-being. All of the classes at the Laurel Yoga Studio are for this time available only online through Zoom. If you have not been doing classes through Zoom you will be pleasantly surprised at how effective they are. In addition, you have the ease of doing them in your own home. Contact a teacher directly for details.

WORTH PONDERING

To become a true human, one must become conscious of listening and hearing the voice of the Great Mystery speaking through everything, through the sound of a tree, or a bird flying overhead, or the wind in the room, or someone breathing, or someone talking, or a moment of silence.

— Joseph Rael

Negativity is not so much a force that has to be destroyed as a distracted state of mind that must be brought to rest.

— David Frawley

Non-violence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our very being.

— Mahatma Gandhi

Let there be a season when holiness is heard, and the splendor of living is revealed. Stunned to stillness by beauty we remember who we are and why we are here.

We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious.

— Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras

To fall in love means to accept falling, i.e., to experience the reaction to falling. To love properly is equivalent to falling properly, that is, without anxiety and fear. 

— Moshe Feldenkrais

Ironically, what you most resist about yourself is exactly what you need to relax into and embrace...for those traits posses the greatest amount of consciousness that is ready to be transmuted. 

— Charles Ridley

 

The heart suffers when it cannot see and touch beauty, but beauty is not shy. It is synonymous with existence.
