Laura has over 20 years of experience in IT enterprise infrastructure. She left the corporate world in 2011 for health-related reasons and used the challenge of chronic illness as an opportunity to shift her focus to her life-long interest in social justice. She teaches meditation and has participated in several of the Yoga and Body Image Coalition’s campaigns, including a spotlight in YBIC and Yoga International's "This is What a Yogi Looks Like" series  and Mantra Yoga + Health's "Every Body is a Yoga Body" feature.   She is passionate about working to make yoga and meditation more accessible and welcoming to everyone.
