Classes, Retreats & Events

Join Laura on a sacred journey into oneself for deep healing and reconnecting with one self. Laura specializes in Sound Healing with The Crystal Bowls, Yoga: Raja and Restorative, Meditation, Expressive Dance and Reiki – and a blend of these together. After a session in Yoga and/or Sound Healing, participants feel more relaxed, centered and one’s thoughts are in a quieter place. It is a journey within, to bring calm and peace to your daily life. Laura offers both private and group classes. She can design classes specifically for all levels.

Laura is currently traveling around the country with her husband and dog in a motor home. See a few photos at About. On the Road, most events – sometimes scheduled and sometimes just spontaneous – will be posted on facebook: “Crystal Bowls On The Road

Sound Healing with Crystal Bowls

Sound healing is a wonderful way to reduce stress and deepen one’s ability to relax into a place of silence. The Crystal Bowls shown here are from Crystal Tones and are made of 99.9% quartz crystal with a tonal quality that resonates with all the chakras to help restore balance and harmony within oneself. As one deepens into the enchanting sounds and vibrations from the bowls…healing can begin.

If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches ever part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiological functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.

Yoga: Raja and Restorative

Laura has trained for over 25 years extensively in Raja Yoga which means “Royal Path” which incudes all of the various forms of Yoga and specifically relates to ‘Yoga of the Mind’. She has trained with Swami Veda Bharati, Walt Baptiste, Michele Hebert, Dr. Mehrad Nazari and many other master teachers. While teaching Yoga, she incorporates healing affirmations, mantras, gratitude, and loving messages along with balancing the chakras, and guided healing meditations. Laura’s skillful mastery in Yoga allows her to provide wonderful Yoga classes for all levels of participants.

So wonderful to meet you both — and thank you, Laura, for your beautiful, generous gift of sound healing in class tonight! It really was an exquisite experience — so special for the students and for me.
Many thanks and much love, Paige
Instructor at Asheville Yoga Center

Meditation and Guided Visualization

Meditation is an ancient practice that can help one achieve a peaceful state of being, greater mental clarity, and mindfulness. It is becoming increasing recognized by medical professionals as a wonderful path for reducing stress, anxiety, blood pressure, and creating a feeling of connectedness and peace.

Guided imagery is a gentle but powerful technique that focuses and directs the imagination. It can be just as simple as an athlete’s 10-second reverie, just before leaping off the diving board, imagining how a perfect dive feels when slicing through the water. Or it can be as complex as imagining the busy, focused buzz of thousands of loyal immune cells, scooting out of the thymus gland on a search and destroy mission to wipe out unsuspecting cancer cells.

Reiki

Reiki is a gentle and effective Japanese “spiritually-guided life force energy technique,” that reduces stress and helps promotes deep relaxation. It actually enhances ones’ natural ability to heal. It is said, that Reiki has its’ own form of intelligence and wisdom. When an experienced practitioner activates this energy, it follows a path leading from the hands to the “unbalanced” part in the body charging this area with positive energy.
