Laci loves yoga, all eight limbs. She is dedicated to her practice and believes the only way to improve is to practice every day, regardless of the outcome. As a teacher, her goal is to provide her students with the tools to develop their own practice, so that yoga becomes a part of their daily lives both on and off the mat.
Laci created the yoga program for pregnant and parenting teen girls at Lindsay Summit High School and works with the Sean O'Shea Foundation teaching yoga in schools. In addition, she works with children and young adults to develop personalized home practices for conditions such as ADD/ADHD, anxiety disorders, stress management, self-esteem issues, etc.
She practices under the guidance of her teacher, Liza DiGaetano, and has studied at length with R. Sharath Jois at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore, India. She has studied meditation with Dr. Lorin Roche and yoga for trauma and at-risk individuals with Hala Khouri.
Laci believes everyone can benefit from yoga. Through asana practice we connect to our mind and body, creating positive changes from within, so we can all lead happy, healthy lives. To learn more about Laci, visit www.yogamermaid.com
