LauraLee had an intuitive interest in yoga at a young age and in 7th grade began taking every opportunity she could to attend yoga classes. In college, she saw so many connections between her studies in Neuroscience and Traditional Chinese Medicine and the benefits of a yoga and meditation practice, and continued to become interested in pursuing this as a foundation of physical, mental, and spiritual health. After graduating from Rhodes College in 2015, LL started a job with lululemon athletica. Her company’s emphasis on personal development, manifesting vision and goals, and involvement in the yoga community helped LauraLee on her path to yoga teacher training, personal empowerment, and living her practice & passion.
She started her first Yoga Teacher Training focusing on the traditions of Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga in January of 2017, and immediately began taking teaching opportunities around Memphis. She loves studying and integrating different styles of yoga and meditation into her practice to continue to strengthen her connection to her intuitive self. She is now an E-RYT 200 | RYT 500 and began the transformative Delta Groove Yoga Kundalini Yoga Training in August of 2019. Through LauraLee’s passionate work and love for the Memphis Yoga Community she found her home and soul family, and in 2019 she became Olivia’s business partner and Co-Owner of Delta Groove Yoga. She is ecstatic for the energy, inspiration, and vision they share for their Delta Groove Yoga family and the Memphis community to continue to be amplified through their partnership as they practice, grow, and evolve together.
