Laurie is thrilled to be able to say that she is now working for herself as a private yoga teacher! She began her yoga studies in earnest in 2009 and is now making house and office calls to clients throughout the Seattle area. She adores working with type-A, goal-oriented, busy parents and professionals (just like herself) who are hungry for the benefits of a yoga practice but have trouble finding the time to fit it in to their overflowing lives. Please find her at lauriemestres.com.
She joined SVP in 2003 after moving to Seattle. Laurie has a MA in public administration and managed non-profit organizations in her former life. While raising 3 kids and transitioning her career to yoga, SVP has kept her connected to the philanthropic world and to the Seattle community. Her passion is in providing basic needs to those struggling throughout the world.
