Classical Yoga instruction
Sivananda Yoga is a classical and holistic approach to Hatha Yoga that stretches and tones the whole body. This style of yoga has not been modified or watered down. The teachings have survived intact and are practiced as originally presented in India by Swami Sivananda in 1936.

Swami Sivananda's teachings can be summed up in five words: "Serve, love, give, purify, meditate, realize." This form of yoga provides numerous health benefits and a strong base for a spiritual practice.

There is a great deal of deep relaxation involved, which not only feels great, but helps our bodies heal and integrate the newly acquired strength and flexibility.

This form of yoga is accessible to people of all ages and stages of mobility! If you can breathe, you can practice Classical Yoga!

Om shanti! (peace)

Laurie is a certified yoga instructor, with training in Classical (Sivananda) Yoga from the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center, a student and practitioner of yoga since 1998.

“I feel so fortunate to have had Laurie Bower read and record my memoir. Laurie’s professional work is quite stunning, and it was a joy to work with her.”

- Leona Stucky,  author, The Fog of Faith: Surviving My Impotent God

It was a pleasure working with Laurie on the production of my audible book. She was reliable, extremely professional and was very concerned that she was providing the best quality of work for me. There was a glitch on some of the uploads she submitted for my approval and she immediately got online with customer service to have the matter resolved.
Laurie responded quickly to my questions and concerns and was always pleasant and professional in our conversations and email transactions. I highly recommend her for any projects you want completed by someone with high moral values, quality workmanship, and professionalism.”

- Christine Chin-Sim, author, Nuggets of Wisdom for Reaching Your Highest Potential Leverage4Change Coaching and Consulting

“I, Craig Dirgo, hereby and forthwith declare that Laurie Bower is, in fact, the finest narrator of audio books on planet earth and the surrounding galaxies.”

- Craig Dirgo, author Eli Cutter: Winter and numerous other books including The Sea Hunters, Golden Buddha and others as co-author with Clive Cussler


Laurie Bower's talent and passion for all things voice-related comes from years working as a  professional voiceover specialist, narrator, actress, singer, radio ad and musical image producer and DJ.  Her numerous character voices and vocal styles come from a lifetime of observing and listening to the many characters she has seen and met, along with training and performance in theatre and film. She has performed professionally as an actress, storyteller, singer, musician and poet.

Laurie was born in Atlanta, but moved up to Connecticut at age two, "before I learned how to talk right!". Eventually, she moved to the mountains of Colorado, then later down to the "Land of Enchantment", where she currently resides in her "tiny" homestead.
