Yoga, Meditation & Mindfulness Guide

Find Your Joy

Life is unpredictable. 

Challenges and triumphs, good times and bad. 

Mostly out of our control, no matter how tight our grip. 

We need to find ways to reset and recharge so that we can thrive and prosper despite the uncertainties of life. 

Ignoring these needs can result in chronic stress and exhaustion that depletes our mind and body, leaving us unfulfilled, unhappy and unhealthy. 

Mindful movement and meditation practices can improve mood, help us sleep better, change the way we manage stress and even help the brain function better. We can physically feel better, build resilience and lead a happier life. ​

As a trauma survivor healing from PTSD and anxiety, as well as someone with two decades of healthcare experience as a physician assistant these practices continue to be transformative and nourishing for me. They can benefit you too!

​I’m a Pittsburgh, PA based yoga, meditation & mindfulness teacher available for in-person or online private sessions, group classes, events, speaking engagements and workplace wellness programs. 

Yoga is not just poses or stretching. It is a way of life available to everyone, every body & can be done anywhere!

​Join me and see!

Pause. Breathe. Be.

I had the opportunity to participate in a virtual class with Laura at Approachable Asana and was glad for the chance to get started on my yoga journey.  I am in my mid-60’s with mobility and balance issues with the notion that yoga would be an opportunity to combat that as I get older. 


I travel a good bit and was glad to see the virtual sessions offered and was able to take advantage of them.  The session ideal for me is the Online Gentle Yoga and offers a great introduction to poses and form.  Laura was accommodating to my limitations as a larger woman and very encouraging.

I attended an outdoor yoga class at Boyce Park that Laura was teaching and it was great.


You can tell she is a very dedicated teacher to the practice. She made it relaxing and fun!

This was great!  Enjoyed the balancing and felt the burn.

I did better than I expected with today's practice! Thanks!

What I appreciate most about Laura as a yoga instructor is her careful attention to detail. She makes every session absolutely personal to her client and has flexibility built into her plan should the client’s body disagree with a particular position.


Laura encourages her clients to always listen to their bodies. Further, she provides exceedingly helpful reading material for each personalized session. Yoga with Laura is a true gift to the self.

I really liked the meditation. Such nice ideas. I feel more focused and less hurried.
