Healing with the Archetypes
Laura was introduced to both yoga and tarot when she 18 and has always considered the two to be very complementary. This workshop is entirely her creation and seamlessly blends her 15 years of experience reading, studying and teaching others about Tarot cards and her 15 years of yoga.
To truly understand the archetypes of the tarot (a very comprehensive western framework for understanding the human condition and how it relates to the cosmos and creator), you need to do more than just memorize meanings, or capture the knowledge in your head. Presenting the archetypes viscerally is Laura’s approach – where you will embody the mythology and imagery with your whole being.
In the west, our lost spiritual roots have us turn to eastern spirituality to fill void in our own spiritual realm. Laura shows you that it is still possible to rediscover a modern western spiritual heritage by blending yoga and tarot.
This workshop is not to be missed.
All levels, lots of asana, and if you know Laura, lots of talking too.
Laura grew up in the UK and moved to the United States in 1990, but returns to the UK frequently to visit family. Her universal approach to yoga is the result of her extensive travels extensively throughout Europe, the Middle East and the Americas. Laura started her yoga practice via a
kundalini yoga class in San Antonio, Texas when she was 18. She went on to complete the 200hr RYT training through the Living Yoga Program, working in the philosophies of Yoga Nidra, Restorative Flow, Qi Qong, Iyengar, Ashtanga and Raja yoga, Zen meditation, Hindu temple
services and studies in Hinduism, Pranayama and chakra studies. Most recently, Laura has taken workshops in Pralaya Yoga with Robert Boustani, Kriya yoga, Iyengar and Anusara yoga, Yin Yoga, Thai Massage, partner yoga, Scaravelli yoga, anatomy and the yoga of myofacial release, Restorative Flow yoga, and classes in Erich Schiffman’s signature style, along with a wonderful dose of Angela Farmer and Victor Van Kooten, Elise Browning Miller, Ana Forrest and Desiree Rumbaugh, all of which influence her eclectic approach to yoga.
In her teaching, Laura brings a blend of many different yoga styles, philosophies and practices. She honors everybody’s individual abilities and how those abilities and preferences can change day to day, even hour to hour, allowing students to do a very individualized practice. Laura strives to show students that their bodies can do amazing things for them when they listen to their bodies, emotions and breath/spirit, and by doing this they are making room for incredible transformations to occur; not only in themselves but in the people and beings they interact with.
