Tiina / Lauretta

Trent Rhode

Tiina has been teaching yoga for 12 years and offers classes in Peterborough Ontario and Nosara Costa Rica. Tiina is the founder of Amrita Living Yoga 200 hr training, and Peterborough Living Yoga. She has been involved in other professional yoga trainings, such as assistant director of Let Your Yoga Dance Teacher Training in Nosara Costa Rica, and faculty for teacher trainings at Kripalu Centre for Yoga and Health and Nosara Yoga Institute. She offers creative, flowing, prayerful, and prana infused yoga and yoga dancing that tunes us into our divine nature. With emphasis on the deeper practices of yoga, her classes inspire a connection to the wisdom of prana (life force) with a lightness and praising of life itself.

Laura was born and raised in Peterborough, and after an education in Ecosystem Management at Fleming College, she moved back to town to study Natural Resource Sciences at Trent University. It was there that she began practicing yoga regularly, and she quickly noticed all of the mental and emotional benefits of her consistent practice.  Yoga became something much more spiritual for her, as she delved deeper into teachings of the 8 Limbs and the Chakras.  She completed her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Amrita Living Yoga, graduating in December of 2014. Laura feels that yoga is something that can unite people from all walks of life.
