Laura Ahrens

Laura’s teaching is a union of traditional yogic philosophy and a modern perspective on the practice. Her current work is a melding of all the different truths of moving and living in yoga that she has had the privilege of learning. Her teaching is an approach to practice, rather than style-focused. Laura’s classes and other offerings prioritize attention to breath and commitment to the inner work necessary for personal evolution. Her greatest commitment is to living the practice of yoga in the world, and teaching others to do the same.

 

In her work, physically challenging asana kindles the fire of transformation and focuses strong attention into meditation. Storytelling, metaphorical language, and precisely directed options for alignment teach the tale of becoming more human. Laura loves teaching others to be discerning practitioners who synthesize information for themselves. In that spirit, she co-created The New School of Yogic Arts, a teacher training school for those who want to learn to teach the practice of yoga as a living system that breathes differently in each body.

 

Laura holds a 200-hour certification in hatha vinyasa, 200-hour and advanced certifications in Forrest Yoga taught by Ana Forrest, and completed a year-long mentorship under the guidance of Dr. Heidi Sormaz. She earned a BFA from The University of the Arts, where she honed her use of story and song, both of which have served as instruments of connection and community since ancient times. She is currently studying yoga therapy with Sarahjoy Marsh.

    SOUTH END

     

    Yoga, meditation, and envisioning become even more powerful and pertinent tools for manifestation as the new year approaches.


    This workshop will include an inspiring yoga practice designed to connect us to what's at our core. We will follow this up by creating our own vision boards to distill what matters most so that we may generate and grow the life we most deeply desire. Meditation will seal everything in and strengthen our intentions.


    A vision board is a collection of photographs, clippings, and other images that serve to focus our intentions and request universal influence in living the life most in line with what we want. Corkboards, pins, magazines, and scissors will be provided. If there are any personally meaningful images or items that you would like to add to your board, feel free to bring them.
