I am a high school social studies teacher, a hiker of tall mountains, a biker, a happy family member and a below average mini-farmer. 15 years ago, athletic injuries and a degree in eastern philosophy led me to my first yoga teacher training.
When I lead a practice, I intend to sequence poses to deepen and access breath, gradually building heat and strength while softening at the same time... letting go. I share verbal cues hoping to support safe alignment and create space in the body for the strengthening and softening. Savasana is my favorite pose.
"Laura, you are an insanely gifted yoga teacher! What a fabulous class this morning. Beautiful space. Beautiful live music. Beautiful you! Looking forward to weeks to come ...."
"By now, you must know what a great space 118 Elliot is, but did you know that on it turns into a fab yoga studio with free parking and air conditioning? And the class is by donation with the awesome Laura Tabachnick. She is like a velvet hammer---she can challenge the experienced yogis and nurture the beginners with a great Vinyasa flow that will make you feel alive!
Your donation supports local non-profits, so come on out and Yoga Locally. Trifecta!"

"Yoga has always been something I wanted to do on a regular basis, and I have tried several different classes and instructors, but I've never stuck with it until Yoga Locally.
Laura's approach makes yoga accessible to various levels and abilities, her directions are very clear, her voice is calming, her attitude is warm and welcoming.
Laura offers accommodations for most poses, and will come and adjust to make sure you are getting the most out of each stretch. The live music and the mini massages at the end are added bonuses to an already outstanding class!"
