September Featured Teacher: Laura Haug

At the core of the Yoga Blend experience are our dedicated, passionate teachers. This month, we feature LAURA HAUG!

Hometown: Bonne Terre, Missouri. 

What brought you to Los Angeles? I moved to LA in July 2006 to pursue working in the film industry. The majority of my time in LA has been spent working in Post Production.Laura_Tree

My favorite place in LA is… I love driving through the mountains and along the PCH to get to Zuma Beach. It’s my go-to place. So peaceful and relaxing for me.

Most memorable thing I did in the last 12 months: I quit my job as a Post Production Manager in Nov 2013 to pursue my passion of yoga and living a healthier and less stressful lifestyle. Haven’t regretted the decision since. 🙂

Favorite food: Right now it’s guacamole! I sometimes just eat that as a meal!

My favorite trip ever was: Going to Turks & Caicos! Had such an amazing and relaxing time connecting with nature and the water and learning how to trapeze! What an incredible trip that was. 🙂 

My most memorable vacation was: Going to Hawaii and experiencing the ocean for the first time. We woke up early one morning to drive up to a volcano and was able to see a number of shooting stars and watched the sunrise. Still in awe over what I experienced there. 

If you could go back in time, what would you say to your 20-year-old self? To celebrate every success, as well as to start enjoying my journey. It truly needs to be enjoyed along the way – the good times and the challenging ones.

Childhood ambition: I wanted to be a news anchor. There is a pretty sweet video of me at the age of 3 doing my first newscast. 

I rock out to: I’m always down for some Queen!
