ART ~ YOGA ~ OFF THE MAT
Be Fierce ~ Be Free ~ Be YOU
Based on realism my paintings are an expressionistic view of my life. My experiences as a Yoga instructor as well as my personal Yoga practice have allowed my work to deepen & become more exploratory. Sensuous experiences, conflicts and choices with which I am confronted and the desire to create my own experience and world are addressed in my paintings. While my paintings are all based on observations of nature, the work reflects varying degrees of subjectiveness. There is a continuous process of discovery as the piece develops. I begin with a very basic concept of what I want to convey and then viscerally respond- with color and gesture-to what happens as the painting matures. The work- as a whole- is about getting beyond all of the barriers that stand between me and finding truth. As the facades dissolve, I can explore what lies deeper. The layers- protection, judgment, doubt, censorship, etc- are peeling away as I expose and enter into the core of who I truly am. My work is a part of the chronicle of my life
- my search for: my Self... my Soul... Spirit.
Yoga Training & Style
Yoga Alliance certified Yoga instructor since 2004, Lauri has been practicing Yoga since 1999. A former record holding high school and collegiate diver, Lauri has not only been studying relaxation & meditation for over 35 years, she has been mastering the use of these techniques herself- as an athlete and in her daily life as well.
Lauri is grateful for the opportunity to deepen her own practice & to enhance her teaching by studying with Internationally renowned Yoga Masters: Erich Schiffmann, Sadie Nardini, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, & Duncan Wong, as well as Dr. Nagendra & Dr. Sridar (both from the SVYASA school of Yoga in India). She is particularly thankful for guidance given to her by Anne DiDomenico, Dr. Veena Gandhi & especially "Bluefeather"- Marcus Evans- who first introduced her to the infinite possibility of the mind, body and spirit.
Lauri loves to mix it up in her practice and what she teaches. Although her main focus is on Core Stregth Vinyasa Yoga (CSVY), she enjoys learning and sharing techniques from a variety of disciplines. Movements and meditations from various Yoga influences, Qigong, Kung Fu, Music, & Sound Healing or even some HIIT training could show up at any time in her classes.
Ultimately her goal is to assist her students in being the most amazing versions of themselves that they can be.
