"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss something."
Who is Laurie Jordan?
Her classes are a refreshing departure from the idea that yoga must be very serious and almost no fun at all. On the contrary, her classes combine her playful sense of humor and laid back approach with years (and years) of experience as both a yoga teacher and yoga student. Add to that mix, an awesome music soundtrack–and Laurie’s classes feel like a 75 minute celebration.
Laurie is the author of Yawning Yoga and a pioneer of kids yoga in Westchester and Fairfield Counties. She created the areas first ever Kids Yoga Teacher Training and continues to offer it in studios throughout New York's back yard.
She has been featured in the Chicago Tribune, Well and Good NYC, Mind-Body-Green, Yoga Journal, Working Mother, Greenwich and Westport Magazines and she shared her expertise as a contributing writer for Elephant Journal.
She is certified to teach yoga to folks of all ages and abilities and has a Masters in Social Work from Columbia University School of Social Work. The combination of yoga and social work has given Laurie a unique expertise that provides insight and special solutions to each of her students.
But experience aside, what sets her apart is her ability to relate and connect with students in a way that makes them feel safe, comfortable, completely at ease—and eager to return to their mats again and again!!
