About my teaching style:

I love to teach – Whether it is students who are looking to deepen their practice or students looking to become yoga teachers. There is nothing I would rather do.

In my group classes the most important thing to me is safety. The sequences build gradually from easier to harder postures utilizing the muscle groups needed for the ‘peak’ postures. This allows the body to gradually warm up and become familiar with the movements needed to achieve the edge of your posture safely.

With the focus being on specific posture alignments not only is it an intellectual learning experience, but ‘muscle memory’ kicks in and your body learns how to move into that place easily because it is familiar.

All of my trainings utilize the different ways people learn – visual – auditory – kinesthetic – so no matter what type of learner you are, you will absorb the material presented in the best way for you.

In the 200-Hour Training you will learn a very specific way to sequence. There is a format you will learn to follow which gives you the ability to create well -rounded themed-based classes that seem like you have been teaching for years even as a brand new teacher.

The 300-Hour Program builds onto this format making room for even more creativity and polishing and/or developing your unique voice and teaching style.

How I explain this is the 200 hour training gives you the skeleton and the 300 hour training gives you the different outfits to dress up the skeleton. But it all begins with a solid foundation.

Yoga is a life long journey with so much to uncover about the practice and ourselves. Enjoy the journey and see all the treasures you discover along the way!

“I took part in the Long Island Yoga School’s 200 hour teacher training in 2010. Before registering, I met with Laurie Ahlemann to discuss the training and I knew immediately this was the perfect match for me. Laurie is amazing and  simply radiates positive and joyful energy. LIYS provides a very intense program that pushes you outside your comfort zone and helps you dive inward to discover things about your ‘True Self’ that you may not have known. This is a highly spiritual training that will really make you think about how you live your life and what kind of energy you want to present to the world. You will leave as not only a well prepared yoga teacher, but also a more enlightened soul, with a better and deeper understanding of yourself. Overall. you will walk away changed…for the better.  – Joanna D. -2010
