Laura Clingan, RYT-200

Laura began practicing yoga in 2015 as a way to relieve stress and add a new form of physical activity to her routine.  She was hooked immediately and it wasn’t long before she sensed that yoga was going to be a transformative power in her life.  She’s been truly amazed by the many benefits that yoga has provided in her life including a more positive self-image, self-compassion, confidence, physical and emotional strength, and an openness to embrace life.  She felt a calling to share the gift of yoga with others and completed her 200-RYT training in 2018 with Kim Lomonoco at The Glowing Body in Knoxville, TN.  She enjoys practicing and teaching power flow, Yin, and gentle yoga.  Always seeking new ways to make yoga accessible to everyone, she is currently pursuing her Yoga For All certification with Dianne Bondy and Amber Karnes.  Her belief is that the physical and mental benefits of yoga are attainable for anyone regardless of physical ability.  She works to meet her students where they are and encourages self-acceptance and compassion.
