Laura

Laura has been practicing yoga for over 18 years and teaching for 15+ years. She initially found her practice via the restaurant business: burnt out, exhausted and losing it, she sought out yoga as a way to help manage her stress. Through her practice she found a way to cope and ultimately a way to dive more deeply into possibility and create meaning in this crazy world.
 

Laura Tulumbas is a Certified Holistic Health Counselor and Lifestyle Coach, AADP, a Certified Yoga Teacher E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance and a Reiki Master. She is previously a Certified Anusara Teacher, certified to teach at Virayoga in NYC in 2002 and is presently teaching a form of aligned flow hatha yoga that has evolved from this knowledge along with Rajanaka Tantra, Ayurveda, anatomy, breath, and the subtle body.

 

Her teachers include but are not limited to Dr. Douglas Brooks, Paul Muller-Ortega, Vaidya (Dr.) Naina Marballi, Cate Stillman, Brenda Villa, Dana Covello, Sharon Rudy, Amy Ippoliti, Elena Brower, Naime Jezzeny, Sianna Sherman, and John Friend. Her greatest teaching resource has been her own exploration of the body and what it has to offer.

 

in her office in the Wellness Center at DYC, Laura offers one-on-one nutritional counseling as well as and lifestyle counseling. Having seen and experienced the benefits of combining a yoga practice with daily routines and prescriptive eating according to her constitution she delights in educating others about the benefits of this path. She believes when we choose to fully step into our experience of being present and mindful we can make choices that will optimize our health, create vitality and offer us a life that we love.

 

Laura is a Reiki Master and offers one-on-one healing appointments using Reiki, a Japanese energy healing modality and crystals to unblock prana and move energy to unleash our greatest potential.

 

Laura is in awe of the elegance and intelligence of the body and she remains curious about how to tap into the potency and the abundance it has to offer. Laura is grateful to all of her teachers especially her two boys who serve as her best teachers, challenging her, loving her, and keeping it real. She is grateful to have a daily practice that serves as a way to refine her experience on a daily basis.



Laura instructs the following:
  • Mindfulness Meditation
  • Classes will explore the ability to practice mindfulness throughout our daily lives based on central themes. During each session, we will use breathing, sensory experiences, visualization, intention, or mindful movement techniques. At the end of the class, you will have the opportunity to ask questions, talk about your experiences, and discuss physiological and psychological outcomes. Mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress, improve attention, cope with difficult situations, and increase feelings of compassion.

    All levels welcome; previous background is not needed to begin.
