Align and Flow Yoga


This class is taught by:

Laura Bunting

Laura’s love of yoga began as a teenager in 1998 and has flourished under the guidance of many renowned teachers within a variety of yogic disciplines including Anusara, Kundalini, Forrest, Iyengar, and Restorative.
 
In 2010 Laura began her journey as a yoga teacher and realized her life’s work and passion, which is to serve and guide others in the evolution of body, mind, and spirit. She is a lifelong learner dedicated to perpetually gathering seeds of inspiration to share with her students and enliven her classes. She weaves clear alignment instruction, embodied anatomy, the spiritual aspects of yoga, and thought provoking themes to create classes that inspire and challenge.
 
She is devoted to supporting all levels of students, both on and off the yoga mat, and to sharing the healing practices of yoga.

Amy Ludwigson

Hooked since the very first time she came to the mat, Amy can’t imagine her life without yoga. Her practice has been a great complement to her active lifestyle, relieving aches and pains after a day of playing outdoors and has given her the physical and mental strength to progress further in all her endeavors. Most importantly, it has taught her to trust her intuition and live a life more true to her heart.

Amy teaches vinyasa and restorative yoga. In her vinyasa classes, she guides students through a challenging series of postures, connecting the breath with every movement, while encouraging self-acceptance, and providing students the opportunity to make new discoveries by stepping outside of their comfort zone. Her therapeutic restorative classes include passive, prop supported poses, meditation, relaxing music, and a bit of Thai yoga massage to gently open up the body and calm the mind, relieving both physical and emotional stress.

Amy graduated from George Mason with a BA in psychology, received her 200 hour teacher certification & restorative training through Qi Yoga, and kids yoga training through Yoga for Young Warriors. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance and is currently pursuing her Thai Yoga Massage certification.

Amy seeks to carry the awareness and gratitude she’s found through her yoga practice into all her experiences. She loves early morning sunrises, the mountains, and especially loves spending time with her wonderful family and friends. Her favorite activities include skiing, hiking, cycling, reading, listening to music, watching the faces of her kids light up on a ball field, and cuddling with her dog Daisy.

 

Lori Carrier

Lori joins the The Cycling Yogi after recently relocating from St. Andrews, Scotland. Although she is certified to teach the Ashtanga Primary Series, Pranayama (breath control), Meditation, and Sat-Kriyas (purification), Lori’s class style blends the intense physical asanas of Ashtanga, with pranayama and the more esoteric aspects of yoga to create an “immoveable union” of mind, body, and spirit.
 
Her insatiable thirst for scientific and philosophical elements of yoga has led to multiple trips across India for yoga study. A yogini at heart, she is inspired by legendary yogis like Sri Sri Ravi Shankakar, T.K.V. Desikachar (son of T. Krishnamacharya), Sri Neem Karoli Baba Maharaj-ji, and Indra Devi (to name a few), and strives to live her life by Mahatma Gandhi's quote of 'being the change you wish to see in the world…’” She happily calls Golden, Colorado home and is excited to join The Cycling Yogi family.

Erica Porter

Growing up in Colorado, Erica has always loved getting out into the outdoors. In 2006 she started cycling after spending years playing team sports trying to find a new sport she would love. She started into yoga after finding that she was having back and shoulder problems from cycling. Learning that by combining a yoga practice with her cycling she was able to strengthen as well as improve her posture and balance on a bike. 6 years ago after a bad bike accident on her bike she decided to go beyond traditional physical therapy and immerse herself in yoga trainings in Costa Rica. Through her time there she was able to regain her strength and functionality.
 
Her journey through 4 yoga trainings (Interdisciplinary yoga, Children’y yoga, Restorative yoga and Innerquest) taught her the use of modifications and new postures to not only regain her functionality but also grow her practice and help others. She has enjoyed the challenge of working with people with injuries and disabilities as well as high school sports teams to help them minimize their risks of injury through improved strength and flexibility.
 
She loves biking, hiking and other adventures when she’s not in the studio!

Deepen your practice by establishing the foundation of alignment while opening to the radiance and joy of flow.

Poses are held longer, allowing us to truly embody each pose and simultaneously open the body, mind and spirit. We flow with breath and awareness while encouraging ourselves to go beyond personal boundaries. Through the stability of alignment we build the intuition to become wise and safe practicing yogis. We also cultivate the ease and the flowing grace of movement.

Open to your own inner grace and radiance.
