There are so many resources out there!  These are just a few (certainly not all).  If you utilize any of these practitioner’s services, please do let them know that Laura Marie referred you!

iREST – a non-profit 501 ( c ) (3) under the direction of Richard C Miller, PhD (my teacher).  On their website you can find an iREST teacher near you, read the most recent documented studies about iREST, find books and CDs on the subject.  My favorite iREST CD is “iREST at Ease” which you can also get on

Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health StockBridge, MA – the largest in the US.  You can go as student and take classes in just about everything yoga and meditation related (and more) or just go for R&R…or take professional level trainings.  Keep an eye on my website if you’d like to join me sometime for a group retreat.  Groups (5 or more people) receive 20% off accommodations.   You can also use this site to find a teacher near you.

International Association of Yoga Therapists – Find a teacher near you or look into their enormous catalog of yoga related studies.

Himalayan Institute Honesdale, PA – another wonderful yoga retreat center with in house natural pharmacy which also has an online presence for purchasing book and products.  Check out their publication, Yoga International for great articles and studies about yoga as well as their online yoga classes that you can access for a small subscription fee.

Tara Brach – Having studied with her a number of times, I can highly recommend Tara and her personal and easily accessible style of teaching meditation.  Her books “Radical Acceptance” and “True Refuge” have been long time staples on my shelf.  I even had to get a 2nd copy of Radical Acceptance because the first one became so well-loved-used.  Can’t get to a Tara Brach class?  She offers all her dharma talks and meditations online for free!  What an amazing resource.

Gary Kraftsow -    excellent VIDEOS "viniyoga therapy for upper back neck and shoulders".  "viniyoga therapy for low back".

 A Path with Heart by Jack Kornfield – another long time favorite

Beginning Mindfulness – by Andrew Weiss (my meditation teacher/a real master).  Makes mindfulness practice simple, practical and accessible.  Andrew also teaches in Raleigh, NC if you’re there try to get to sit with him in person.

the iREST Program for Healing PTSD – Richard C. Miller, PhD (another master/also my teacher)

Do you Believe Everything you Think? By Lisa Layman Tiernan  (also studied with Andrew Weiss)

The Four Desires by Rod Stryker

Mudras for Healing and Transformation by Joseph and Lillian LePage (also my teachers) This is a comprehensive resource; however I do find that these practice is enhanced by taking the training with the LePages or working with a teacher familiar with the practice.

The Injury Free Yoga Practice by Steven Weiss, MS, DC, RYT

Relax and Renew by Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., PT – the original restorative yoga book

Everything by BKS Iyengar (Light on Yoga; Light on Pranayam, etc)
