Laura Ahrens

Laura Ahrens reluctantly tried yoga in 2009, and was surprised by her almost immediate dedication to the practice. She received a 200-hour certification in vinyasa in 2011. Shortly after, she was captivated by the deeply connected and core-centric practice of Forrest Yoga and went on to complete the Foundation and Advanced Teacher Trainings with creator Ana Forrest and year-long mentorship with Dr. Heidi Sormaz. She also holds a BFA from The University of the Arts.


Laura’s current work is a melding together all of the different truths of moving and living through the yogic tradition that she has had the privilege of learning. Her teaching is more of an approach to practice than style-focused. Laura works with attention to an individual's physical and emotional starting points to empower ownership of one's practice.


Passionate about connection, her teaching is fueled by depth of breath, strong connection to core, precision of alignment, and commitment to the internal and somatic work necessary for personal evolution. Laura emphasizes quality of movement, and is adamant about process. She is inspired by intentional transitions and warrior-like, functional movement.


Laura is most interested in teaching others to be discerning practitioners who synthesize information through their own specific circumstances. In that spirit, she co-created The New School of Yogic Arts, a 200-hour yoga teacher training for those who want to teach the practice of yoga as a living system that breathes differently in each body.

Join the trainers, Tatyana, Laura and Goldie (via Skype), for an interactive info session about the Summer Intensive and Fall Weekend Format teacher trainings. We’ll give you the low down and answer any questions you may have. Embarking on this journey can feel like a huge next step in your practice, so we’ll be here to give you all the details about what the average day is like, what material will be covered, and what to expect. The biggest question we get is “Am I ready?” You can bring that question, too. Enroll for the free Info Session and get complementary admission to the 5:45 p.m. vinyasa class beforehand. We can’t wait to see you there!
