Laurie Trigilio began a regular practice of yoga in 1998 to help heal injuries but soon discovered yoga provided greater balance in her life in many ways. She experienced increased physical and mental well-being, the bliss of inner peace, and the awakening of a dormant spirituality. Her desire is to touch other’s lives the way her life has been touched, to inspire them and to nurture them to deepen their yoga practice. Her teaching encourages mindfulness, safe alignment, and healing movement and breath. She has been teaching yoga and facilitating women’s retreats since 2004. She is 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified, with an additional 300 hour certification in Healing Emphasis Yoga through Inner Vision and a 45 hour certification to teach Yoga for Cancer (Y4C). In addition to teaching various levels and types of classes, she teaches healing emphasis focused classes and yoga for cancer patients and survivors.
