Foundations in Anatomy & Body Science Part 2
Muscle Physiology & Function
In the 2nd part of my Online Course through Udemy we will learn about how the Soft Tissues of the body are Structured and how that impacts the way they function. This includes how to stretch a muscle (5 ways) how muscles contract, the job of fascia and how to improve the resilience of these tissues through progressive and varied loading.

Nature Therapy & Lifestyle Medicine
Regaining a natural connection
Our connection to the natural world is vital to our overall health. Laura utilizes nature in her work as an Occupational Therapist as well as a Yoga Therapist through the practice of "Lifestyle Medicine" - making contact with nature part of your daily lifestyle. This may include practicing yoga outside, forest bathing, walking on the beach, camping, meditation by a body of water, earthing or even renting a camper (see below for my vintage style fiberglass trailer rental).
Scamp RV Rental
Nature Therapy + Comfort
As part of Nature Therapy Laura encourages her clients to get outside- if sleeping on the ground is not your thing using a camper is a great option. This offers the best combination of contact with nature while still having access to all the creature comforts like a bed, a bathroom and a fridge! You can rent Laura's 16 foot Scamp Travel Trailer and go on a nature retreat of your own at RVshare.com
Yoga for the Lymphatic System
The Lymphatic System relies on movement and breath to function effectively, making yoga one of the most effective ways of improving Lymphatic flow. This often ignored system is vital to our immune function and recent research has shown it is also a vital part of brain health. Laura has been working as a Certified Lymphedema Therapist since 2016, working with individuals experiencing swelling due to cancer treatment, surgery or hereditary circulatory conditions. Yoga for the lymphatic system is also a great way to support overall health and recovery following athletic events.

Yoga for Parkinson's Disease & Neurological Conditions
Yoga is a system that communicates directly with the nervous system. We use breathing, movement and sensory input to convey a message to the body's control center to facilitate relaxation. Recent research has shown how yoga can be effective in the management of both the motor and non-motor (emotional) symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. Laura Has been working in a specialty outpatient neurological clinic since 2015. She is certified in LSVT BIG for Parkinson's Disease and incorporates her knowledge as an Occupational Therapist into each of her yoga sessions.

Kundalini Yoga for Energy Management
Kundalini yoga is a practice that is extremely effective at helping us to work through difficult emotions, to break up patterns of stagnation and to find a deep inner resource of energy. Kundalini yoga is all about awakening the powerful dormant energy that is already inside each of us, but is often not being utilized. The movement patterns, breath work, chanting and deep meditation techniques of Kundalini yoga can help us to harness our energy like no other form of yoga.

Meditation and Breath work for Anxiety, Depression and Focus
Yoga gives us many techniques for communicating with our nervous system, our body's command center. These techniques can be used to train the mind, redirect our attention, harness our natural energy and foster a state of calm focus. The process of working with an experienced teacher will start with an assessment to determine what your goals are and what techniques will be beneficial to you. Then Laura will teach you the techniques that you can integrate into your daily life that will be the most effective at managing anxiety, alleviating depression and maintaining that sense of focus and connection that we all want to achieve.
