Laura is a Stråla Advanced Beginner Guide who began her Stråla home practice in 2008. Laura fell in love with Stråla revolutionary approach to yoga practice focusing on being, moving and healing. She loves living a balanced, happy life and grounding with crystals daily.
Laura began guiding her classes, and then proceeded to obtain in-person training through Stråla. She trained with Tara Stiles, Mike Taylor, and Sam Berlind in New York City, where she began to explore softening and movement. Through continued practice, Laura became more connected & aware, and grew stronger & happier — from the inside out.
As a yoga guide, Laura helps people slowdown, finding ease in movement by focusing on breath & body connection, thereby empowering them to drop their stress, heal, and feel at ease on and off the mat.
From the first moment I stepped onto my mat, I knew I had found the perfect place. Laura’s voice is soothing and she leads us expertly through the moves, as if the half hour each day is a well-rehearsed dance. I enjoy the tranquility of the music she plays and the mix of people who attend on a regular basis. By the time, we relax I have de-stressed and feel positive. It is the best way to end a workday! Thank you so much for offering these yoga sessions.

I started Strala Yoga with Laura. I learned breathing, and how to move with ease. I could see results in my daily activities almost immediately. My balance improved as well as my ability to breathe deep during stressful situations. I look forward to continuing my sessions with Laura and practicing Strala in my daily life.

I have been receiving yoga instruction from Laura Perez; she makes yoga accessible in ways I never thought possible. She is encouraging, patient and gentle and doesn’t push me beyond my capabilities. Because of her approach and demeanor, I find myself doing the pushing, always looking for that opportunity to stretch further, become more centered and find balance.
Not only do I look forward to our weekly sessions, I have found them to be life-changing in many ways: Over the time we have met, I have significantly lowered my blood pressure, lost 30 pounds and have increased my mobility. My primary physician has indicated that, if I keep moving in this direction, I may be able to stop taking medications for prediabetes and high blood pressure all together!
I no longer feel intimidated by yoga and have incorporated it into my daily routine. I can’t thank Laura enough for the gifts she’s shared with me. She makes yoga fun, challenging and accessible!
