Laura Perkins

I have been on a lifelong journey with Yoga, beginning when I was a child, right here in the Bay Area, with a PBS TV show Lilias Yoga and You. After that introduction my Yoga laid dormant, for decades, until the 1990's, when I began taking classes at a local gym. I immediately fell back in love with the feeling of feeling, and practiced regularly for years. In 2007 I decided teaching might be for me. I took my first yoga training that year and then my second in 2016. I am a believer, and I get such a deep sense of gratitude when I am able to share Yoga with others.
 
 

Why yoga?
Yoga transcends my mind into my body, and lets me feel. I love the feeling of energy moving and flowing, with no expectation of outcome.


Who or what inspires you?
Life's ups and downs inspire me to be my best, and show up in the most authentic way possible. To be of service, and to love fully.


Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Dynamic. Friendly. Personal.

 

What is something not a lot of people know about you?
I love to spend time talking to the angels.



Laura Perkins instructs the following:
  • Gentle Flow
  • Gentle Flow is offered in a non-heated room. This blissful practice focuses on moving slowly into basic yoga poses while using the breath as a tool to remain present and mindful. The slow pace of this class allows you to enjoy each pose. Expect lots of stretching and lengthening with a heavy dose of relaxation to wrap up your practice and leave you feeling great. Classes are suitable for beginners as well as advanced students. Non-heated class.

  • Movement & Meditation
  • Awaken to your seat. 
     
    This class will take you on a journey to raise your vibration and discover your bliss. Offering a beautiful balance of doing and just being. You will journey through movement - sometimes self-led, sometimes guided - ending with a meditation that will leave you feeling balanced, connected, whole and awake.

  • Vinyasa Flow - All Levels
  • Dynamic flow-based yoga. Recommended for those having a familiarity with Sun Salutations A and B.

    Power Vinyasa flow is a rigorous, sweaty yoga practice stemming from the ashtanga tradition. Poses are held for shorter periods of time and will link one breath with motion, creating a dynamic and fluid ‘meditation in motion.’ This is a hot, sweaty fun practice often set to fun, fluid, dynamic music. You will leave inspired and ready to shine off the mat!

    Room heated to 85-88 degrees.
