Laura is the founder and lead teacher at SAMA Studio, Armidale, NSW. Laura was first introduced to yoga around 10 years of age, when she observed her childhood friend, Rosie, practicing yoga whilst on holiday together. It wasn’t until 2007 however that Laura became a regular student of yoga. She discovered her main teacher, Kate Pell, around this time and describes Kate’s classes like visiting home – full of heart, support and love. Around this time, Laura also developed a strong interest in Buddhist philosophy and meditation practices. In 2009, Laura began training with Kate to become a certified teacher and has been teaching yoga full time since 2013.
Laura holds over 1000 hours of formal yoga teacher training and has additional qualifications in pregnancy, postnatal, kids, partner and community yoga. She has studied intensively with Kate Pell, Noah Maze, Donna Farhi, Simon-Borg Olivier and Sue Scott in Australia and returns to India to continue studies with her teachers there, Rajiv and Swati Chanchani. Laura’s motivation to share her experience of yoga and the gifts the practice brings are in service to cultivating and strengthening a greater sense of Kula – (Community of Heart).
