Laura has been studying and practicing yoga for over 50 years. She began with Sivananda Yoga in 1967. She moved to Louisville in 1990 and began taking classes with Maja Trigg (1927-2016), founder of Yoga East. In April, 1994 Maja retired from teaching and moved to North Carolina. Laura began driving to Columbus, Ohio to take workshops with Ashtanga teachers David and Doug Swenson, Tim Miller and Larry Schultz. In 1999 Laura traveled to Mysore, India and spent three months studying with Pattabhi Jois and studied with him every year until he passed away in May, 2009. Laura has cultivated long-term relationships with master teachers from the Iyengar, Anusara, Ashtanga and Sivananda traditions: Francois Raoult, Ramanand Patel, John Friend, Douglas Keller, David Swenson, Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldmann, David Garrigues, Robert Moses, and other teachers who have inspired our students.
Laura Spaulding is currently not instructing any classes.
