Laureano grew up playing rugby and then continued with different sports throughout his life. He never had a serious injury until he almost simultaneously ruptured both his achilles tendons. Surprisingly this complete disaster – forcing a lifelong athlete into a long recovery – eventually turned into a blessing. Laureano found yoga and a new flexibility and ease that he never thought possible. An avid traveler, Laureano curiously explored many different styles of yoga for the following five years, until he was introduced to Skanda Yoga® in 2012. Guided by founders Lina Vallejo and Ken von Roenn III he graduated from the Skanda Yoga® 200 hour teacher training in 2014. Laureano’s classes are open for all levels of yoga practitioners.
