Laura Holmes has been teaching yoga since 2013 and is a member of Yoga Alliance. She completed her teacher training at Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga in San Diego, CA and she is also certified in Silver Age Yoga, for the older adult. Prior to Laura’s yoga certification, she was also a Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, Weight Management Coach and a regional trainer for Silver Sneakers. Laura Holmes has instructed yoga to inter-city kids, to the Braille Institute for the blind, and to seniors in a chair.
Laura enjoys teaching yoga, fusion mixtures while combining the fundamentals of Hatha Yoga with occasional flows, emphasizing strength, balance and cognitive sequences too. But, don’t let this alarm you, because all of the above can be modified for each and every individual. Laura is currently teaching a combined class, for students 50 years and over, with half of the students on the mat and half in the chair. This class is currently at capacity, with a waiting list to join.
Since 2011, Laura has worked with the older population doing social work and admissions for a skilled nursing facility. It is this experience that drives her passion to teach to the older adult- to stay strong and avoid those falls.
Laura is still very curious and loves to explore in her yoga, and she hopes you will welcome this curiosity and exploration with her!
