One of my favorite finds in St. Paul! Yoke is a diverse and supportive community of teachers and members. They do an incredible job of making everyone feel welcome, comfortable, and safe. They have a variety of classes and fun little challenges that pop up a few times a year. I am so happy I joined!
Born and raised in the Twin Cities, Laree fell in love with vinyasa-inspired movement and fitness. Always in a constant state of motion, Laree was initially drawn to higher-intensity sculpt classes, which also led her Lauren! In 2010, her husband's job relocated her to Decorah, IA and the gorgeous small town had a lot to offer, but was missing one crucial piece.
After religiously traveling from Iowa to Minnesota to attend Lauren's classes, she jumped at the opportunity to be guided under her through a sculpt and a 200-hour vinyasa teacher training to bring this style of yoga to Decorah. Forever a student of the practice, Laree has studied under Michelle C. Johnson, Jason Crandell, Jes Rosenberg and Tiffany Cruishank.
Laree's classes are dynamic, energetic and methodical. Seven years, three kids, one studio and brief pandemic hiatus later, Laree is stepping back into the teaching world to promote that yoga isn't just practiced on the mat, but it's a great place to start.
