Laurie Dean

RYT-500, Level 1 Parayoga Teacher, Ayurveda Health Counselor

I began  practiced yoga in  2000 and found Parayoga in 2003 when I began studying with my teacher Yogarupa Rod Stryker – life changing!  Study with him continues – I am  inspired by his dedication to growth, his reverence for his teachers and the teachings, and his great sense of humor!   Love being a certified Four Desires trainer – 1 of approx. 25 students who have been trained to offer this life-changing work based on Rod’s book The Four Desires. I appreciate all I learned from Sarah and Ty Powers , and the study of  alignment based yoga with Jordan Bloom.Curious and passionate about learning,  I became an Ayurveda Health Counselor in 2015, completing the NAMA certified 650 hr program with Dr Rosy Mann – director of Kripalu’s School of Ayurveda and Kathryn Templeton of Yoga International fame!
