Laura Peterson



Laura took her first yoga class 13 years ago at YogaWorks. She was instantly hooked. Since then Laura has practiced at many studios in New York City but she found Jaya Yoga Center to be her peaceful place to practice. She started her career at Jaya doing work-study when it first opened in Kensington. As a New York City public school teacher Laura has always valued education and finds joy in teaching. She decided to follow in Ramit’s footsteps and got her 200 hour training from Dana Flynn at Laughing Lotus. Laura loves the flow of a vinyasana sequence where you focus on the breath to move through the practice. After having her daughter Lucy and her son Charlie, Laura received training to teach kids yoga from Asana Alphabet and her prenatal yoga training from Mia Borgatta. Jaya is part of Laura’s family. She is honored to practice, work, and teach with so many other amazing people at Jaya.
