You are about to understand for yourself why so many beginners walk out of yoga class peaceful and full of light! No Experience Necessary…..Just a Beginner’s Mind and Heart!  We suggest you look through some of the testimonials our students have submitted

Our Yoga programs are for every body. Grounded by Yoga shares a Yoga/Meditation is for healing internally and/or externally. It is non-competitive; thereby everyone practices at his or her own pace.  Your guides are particularly aware of the individual needs and abilities of each student. Yoga & Meditation are a process, not a goal. You will be in a compassionate environment filled with support and other students that are beginner’s too!  We are practicing to wake up to our own beauty and capacities and also to the beauty around us.

All we need to do is to come back to our breathing and body in the present moment and then we are wide awake to experience what is happening inside us and around us.

Our intention in the Beginner Yoga & Yoga/Meditation Series is to develop a lifelong living and love of yoga/meditation. It’s never ever too late.

SYVC Sivananda Yoga Yoga Siromani and Yoga Acharya (advanced course)

My Story

Laurah completed her teachers training in 1997 (California) and advanced teachers training in 2000 (South India) in the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres and continued her training in that school for more than two decades. Since that time, she has taught yoga in yoga centers and ashrams throughout North America and South India. From 1999 to 2003, she taught yoga practice and theory to dance majors and non-majors at the University of California, Los Angeles, in the Department of World Arts and Cultures. From 2003 to 2005, she taught yoga and creative movement to children at a preschool and downtown dance academy in New York City. In the intervening summers, she was director of a children’s yoga camp in California. Later, she shared her time between Syracuse, NY and Kerala and Tamil Nadu, South India, where she conducted years of language study and research in anthropology, while continuing to practice and teach yoga.

Introduced to yoga after years of study of dance (including the classical Indian dance, Bharata Natyam, as well as ballet, tap, and modern dance), Laurah brings a depth of anatomical knowledge to her practice. She also completed courses in Swedish and Ayurvedic massage. Laurah offers a simple practice, grounded in her training in Sivananda’s system of 12 basic asanas, with a focus on breath and longer held postures. She has taught a wide range of bodies – from athletes and dancers, to people with physical limitations or concerns, including obesity, old age, and prenatal yoga. Yoga is for everybody!

In addition to her yoga background, Laurah holds a PhD in cultural anthropology, with a specialty in South India. She teaches at Utica University in the areas of health anthropology, gender, globalization, and food and culture. Fluent in Tamil and Malayalam languages, she has spent many years living and working in South India. Her 2022 book, Transnational Yoga at Work: Spiritual Tourism and its Blind Spots is an ethnographic study of workers in the international Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres in India.
