It’s kismet that the day I’m releasing the first episode of my podcast is one year to the day from when I graduated my 200-hour yoga teacher training! I knew that my first episode had to be with my YTT teacher and good friend Laura Ahrens; my experience with her and the team she’s assembled for the New School of Yogic Arts (aka NSYA) was truly transformative in my life.
Laura is a yoga teacher in Boston and Brookline, MA. She offers her students a strong, supportive space in which to practice meditative and intentional asana. Not only is she an incredible teacher, she also owns NSYA; leads mentorships and retreats domestically and internationally; and co-owns Miakoda, a sustainable, ethical clothing line with her sister Julia, among many other amazing endeavors.
In this episode we hear:
about Laura’s own personal growth on and off the mat
how she found her voice as a teacher
what it means to have integrity as a yoga teacher and individual
how she uncovered her ever-evolving authentic self
how to balance taking care of one’s self while offering space for others
We had some technical difficulties toward the end and a small part lost, however that means Laura will definitely be back on again soon!
