Laura C.

Laura Abbott Coan is a certified Yoga Therapist who loves the healing art of yoga to support REAL life. Laura received her training from Gary Kraftsow, American Viniyoga. She worked in a collaborative counseling practice for 7 years where she gained experience in collaborating with licensed professional counselors using yoga and talk therapy to support mental health, as well as creating curriculum for psychotherapeutic yoga trainings. She believes this combination is a powerful way to create transformation. REAL life can be hard and Yoga can help build resiliency, nourish and support you no matter where you are.

She is passionate about teaching yoga as a lifestyle not an exercise regime. Her mentorship program helps students of yoga connect more deeply to the foundation, philosophy, and practices that make things happen! There is definitely a little magic that happens personally and as a teacher when you study with her!

Creating sacred space during retreats is one of Laura’s gifts. She has found retreats to be an integral part of her own journey that clears her head and connects her to her own true nature where wisdom, love and joy reside. There’s just something so special about being surrounded by community and using that pulsation to dig deep and arrive on the other side!

She believes in justice for all and dedicates time and action to understanding systemic racism within herself and in her community. She holds a white accountability group to keep herself and others learning and unlearning. She uses the tools of yoga to soothe the discomfort that inevitably arises and needs to be addressed to truly heal and move forward together.
