In 2016, Laurie-Anne Lamothe purchased the Yoga Centre of Niagara, becoming its visionary and continued to turn the Centre into an inclusive wellness space. She wasn’t a yoga teacher at the time; however, she was someone with a dream.
Laurie-Anne has lived many lives while working in the United States and Canada, including being a life coach, inspirational speaker, workshop facilitator, Reiki master, and yoga teacher. She also has been on Canadian television, has been a guest writer for many blogs and been featured in magazines. These are all things Laurie-Anne continues to do in her daily life, and uses them to add another unique element into her yoga practice and her classes.
Laurie-Anne is a friend to all, being an avid supporter of the LGBTQIA+ community. As a mother of two children who are part of the BIPOC community, inclusivity is important to her. She uses her experiences from working as an education assistant, in geriatrics, and with neurodivergent people to make the studio a warm and welcoming space.
Laurie-Anne uses the emotional, physical, and spiritual obstacles she’s overcome in her life to create valuable lessons in her classes. She always encourages students to embrace the practice and turn their intentions inwards, encouraging self-love and self-care as well as teaching sacred texts with integrity in the modern day.
Education is very important to Laurie-Anne. She has studied inclusivity, decolonization of yoga, specialized anatomy programs and personal and spiritual development programs. She has studied with Wayne Dyer, Colette Baron-Reid and many more.
Laurie-Anne continues to learn and grow, and never forgets to keep dreaming.
