Sraddha (pronounced SHRA-da) has been a practitioner of the contemplative arts since 2002. A yoga therapist for over seven years, Laura is founder of Georgetown Yoga Therapy, where she teaches yoga and mindfulness to individuals. She received her masters from Harvard Divinity School in Hindu/Buddhist Studies and Contemplative Health in 2009, and completed the professional training practicum in Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 2004. She received her yoga teacher training from Flow Yoga Center. Sraddha’s teaching is deeply informed by the teachings of Adyashanti and Tara Brach.
As part of Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme), Sraddha conducted mindfulness programs with students and faculty at Georgetown Day School, the Holton-Arms School, Whitman High School, Walter Johnson High School, Sandy Springs Friends School, and Bishop MacNamara High School. She currently teaches for MINDS (www.mindsincorporated.org), a local nonprofit dedicated to weaving mindfulness into schools through offering teachers, parents, and teens the opportunity to learn the practice. Sraddha taught mindfulness as part of a semester-long mindfulness pilot program at Whitman High School in 2014.
