Laura Goellner OTR/L, RYT, LMT, CLT
Laura is a graduate of Richard Stockton College twice over. First for her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology/Fine Arts and then for her Matsters’s Degree in Occupational Therapy. She is currently working as a licensed Occupational Therapist with the older adult population, in a sub-acute rehabilitation facility. Yoga became a growing passion for her when she entered college. It started as a way to avoid the freshman 15 and later evolved as a way to maintain balance through her hectic schedule. Laura first pursued a teaching certification with Melissa Goldstein in 2005 and later refined her teaching skills through a 200-Hour certification under Laurie Greene. Laura also holds a specialized certification in Yin Yoga and Mat Pilates. Her background as an Occupational Therapist lead to classes based on alignment and safety, while mixing in fun variations and smooth flows. Through her teaching, Laura is continually exploring the variety and adaptability of yoga to make its transformative properties accessible to everyone. When she is not on her mat, Laura can be found camping, hiking backpacking, gardening, Kayaking and relaxing in her 192 sq. foot Tiny House on Wheels.
In November 2013 Laura earned her certification in Thai Yoga Massage. This training has become a wonderful addition the the Partner Yoga Workshop as well as individual sessions.
