Profile and Credentials        

Lauri Bruce says her first experience with yoga was a book called Yoga for Seniors that belonged to her Grandfather. She and her brother and her cousins competed to see who could do the hardest poses. But it wasn't until 1976, while her family was stationed in Keflavik, Iceland, that she first tried a yoga class . Lauri tried yoga many times over the next 2 decades. It wasn't until 1998 when she began studying with a friend, who had recently finished her teacher training, that the true lessons of yoga began to stick. At first Lauri took yoga classes with the idea of releaving back pain and reducing stress but found the principles of yoga appealed to her and were a compelling reason to stick with it. In 2000 she moved to Connecticut and met a chiropractor who was also a yoga instructor. It was the first time Lauri tried using yoga to specifically address the pain and curvature of her scoliosis. In 2003 Lauri finished her 200 hr level teacher training course.

Since finding the Yoga for Scoliosis practice and working diligently, Lauri has been able to reduced the appearance and severity of her curves. Lauri was so inspired by this practice that in 2005 she recieved her certification to be a Yoga for Scoliosis Trainer with Elise Miller. In 2006 she completed her 500 hr Interdisciplinary Teacher Training with Don and Amba Stapleton the founders and directors of Nosara Yoga.

Now Lauri teaches primarily in Southern Maryland but sees clients and teaches scoliosis workshops throughout the Washington metro area. When she isn't teaching Lauri is usually painting in her studio on the Potomac River.

Lauri feels blessed to have had the opportunity to study with so many inspiring teachers and to learn so much more from the students she sees each week.

Class Descriptions

Gentle Yoga A more therapeutic approach to yoga. Slower movements and the use of props to adapt poses for easier access. Some floor work is required. If you are unable to be on your hands and knees the chair yoga class might be a better option.

Yoga Basics for Beginners This class will help introduce you to the principle concepts of yoga and begin to explore the basic poses, meditation and breath work.

Level 1 This class will help you refine, practice and explore basic poses while working to build a home practice. The emphasis will be on alignment, flexibility and strength building. Appropriate for students who have completed the basics class.

Yoga for All Levels Formerly Yoga for Equestrians, this class will be shared between Gina Guffey and another instructor. Alternating weekly, they will focus on alignment, flexibility, strength. This class is recommended for students looking to supplement other exercise programs such as riding, cycling, running, weight lifting.

Mixed Level This is a flow-based class. We will work toward arm balances, inversions, and a deeper understanding of a well rounded yoga practice.

Gentle Chair Yoga Based on the principle of a traditional yoga practice, in this class we will use a chair to support us in our poses. This class is appropriate for people with MS, arthritis, knee and hip replacements, spinal issues, osteoporosis or recovering from surgery or illness.
