LauraLynn Jansen, MHEd., CPCC, E-RYT began practicing yoga almost three decades ago as part of her healing regime to cope with a cancer diagnosis. Surviving cancer gave her a thirst to live life to its fullest leading her to obtain a master's degree in Integrative Health Education. After a fifteen-year period of personal immersion into Yoga she attained a teaching certification while traveling in India. Her aim for any one who practices with her is a discovery of empowerment and fun. She has offered Yoga to diverse student populations from cancer patients to at-risk youth and military members to individuals recovering from injuries. Over the last decade she has turned her focus of study to mindfulness, breath attention, proper core engagement, alignment, and a practical life-supporting philosophy. LauraLynn teaches in the Denver VA system.
