Laura Burkhart is a 500 E-RYT San Francisco-based international teacher and featured online teacher on Grokker, myYogaWorks, and Yoga Vibes. Laura sought out yoga to help combat serious health problems due to a decade of major stress and insomnia. Yoga reminded her of the similar movement mediation she found when she use to dance, but unlike dance, yoga encouraged her to respect her body rather than push her body beyond its limits. Laura’s creative, well-rounded classes are smartly sequenced with a smooth, rhythmic flow. She is a two-time cover model and regular contributor for Yoga Journal and has presented at festivals such as the Yoga Journal Conference, The Bali Spirit Festival, Yoga Festival Italy, and Wanderlust 108. Laura mentors teachers in creating solid public and online teacher careers, and co-leads 200-hour teacher trainings with Jason Crandell.
