Laura Uma East (she/her), is an innovative holistic yoga therapist and certified personal trainer. Uma’s first love was activated when she discovered raja yoga as a teenager via sacred books. Since 2003 she has been teaching yoga and received her C-IAYT in 2013. She thrives in teaching diverse populations and creatively designing yoga therapy programs. With a wide breadth of experience serving in community health programs, in local hospitals, working with insurance companies, medical spas, wellness and physical therapy studios, public libraries, government agencies, urban and rural communities, non-profits, and in free community clinics. She pioneered the transition for online teaching at her local hospitals via zoom to keep her students safe.

Her strength is in working with women dealing with various medical conditions.   She has worked with those suffering from neck and back pain, scoliosis, spinal stenosis and osteoporosis, balance and strength challenges, depression, anxiety, heart disease, and cancers.  Her Integral Yoga training includes Cardiac Yoga®, Neuroscience, Yoga and Mindfulness, Yoga for Arthritis, and Intermediate Teacher Training.  Her education outside of Integral Yoga includes over 15 other certifications ranging from Pelvic Floor Health Coach to P90X.

“The most rewarding part of being a yoga therapist is the opportunity to serve and share the unlimited gifts that yoga has to offer. When not teaching, you can find me reading inspiring books, practicing bhakti on my harmonium, playing with my grandson and in the garden, tending flowers and medicinal herbs and veg, saving seeds for my beloved sangha and greater community.”
