Our studio is a resource for physical, mental, and emotional well-being. We seek to nurture self knowledge, transformation, dedication, and love through the practices of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness.
We serve as an inclusive, supportive, and transformative space to come together to practice. We seek to nurture a sense of belonging and shared accountability. Whether you come to yoga for the physical, mental, or spiritual benefits, we offer a wide variety of class options, workshops, and events, while being dedicated to honoring the roots of the yogic traditions.
Laura Erickson is the founder and owner of Mountain Kula Yoga. After a 20 year career in apparel design, her love of yoga, and connection to the Be Well community led her to acquire the yoga space at Be Well Studios and launch Mountain Kula Yoga. Laura was first introduced to yoga in 2005 while working at Eastern Mountain Sports Base Camp in Peterborough, NH. It was there that she learned the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga from former employee and co-worker, Robert Moses. Taking classes at Be Well Studios, she continued to deepen her Ashtanga practice with Dana Deschenes and was inspired to pursue teacher training, seeking not only the physical, but the mental and emotional benefits of a yogic lifestyle. She has studied Ayurveda with Cate Stillman, Heart Centered Leadership and Facilitation via the Spiritual Psychology curriculum of the University of Santa Monica, and most recently received her 300hr RYT from Ashley Turners Yoga.Psyche.Soul teacher training, focused on yoga psychology, yoga for mental health, social justice, and trauma-informed yoga.
Laura is most looking forward to welcoming and connecting with old and new friends as we return to practice in our new studio, and is humbled to play a small part in spreading the healing and transformational effects of yoga to the larger community. When not in the studio or on her mat, Laura can be found enjoying time outside with her husband and two sons, mountain biking in the summer and skiing in the winter, and occasionally attempting a headstand on a SUP.
