Laurie LeCompte, RYT 500, E-RYT 200
Laurie started yoga as cross-training and injury prevention for running. She found that yoga not only allowed her to run faster and longer, but also kept her joints and muscles healthy. After several years of practice in various styles of yoga, Laurie completed her 200 hour training in Ashtanga Vinyasa at Infinite Yoga in San Diego, California. Laurie also completed 300 hours in advanced yoga studies at the Asheville Yoga Center. She also has specialized training in pre- and post-natal yoga, restorative yoga, yoga for seniors, and therapeutic elements of yoga. In addition to her yoga practice, Laurie runs and lifts weights. She also has a Master of Arts in German Studies and teaches German at Bellarmine University.
Laurie is the owner and founder of Yoga Baum, a studio in Louisville, KY offering studio classes, private lessons, workshops and 200-Hour Yoga Alliance approved yoga teacher trainings.
Laurie believes that yoga is for everyone. However, everyone's needs are different. Laurie finds a style or practice that fits your health and fitness needs and helps you to maintain a sustainable practice. A "sustainable" practice is realistic, beneficial, and life-long. Laurie believes it is her job to build you up, make you stronger, and create an environment in which you can succeed and a practice through which you can achieve long-term health and wellness.
