About Laughing Lotus Yoga of Anchorage
Laughing Lotus Yoga of Anchorage’s founders, Kim and Svia, have shaped their studio around the mantra “freedom in practice”—the idea that clients should interpret yoga to best suit their own needs. In this mantra's spirit, the 11-yogi staff instructs classes in diverse modalities, such as stress-relieving Hatha, mind-and-body-balancing Kundalini, and Vinyasa flow, a mashup of styles. To further personalize lessons, instructors can tailor asanas and stretches to injured clients in private sessions, to expecting mothers in prenatal classes, or to children stressed from memorizing all the rules of freeze tag in yoga for kids aged 3–5 and 6–10.
An on-site healing team pampers physiques with traditional massages, Thai bodywork, and Rolfing. The studio’s boutique stockpiles yoga gear from brands such as form-fitting lululemon and festively tie-dyed Shining Shakti.
