Laurie Hyland Robertson, MS, C-IAYT,
Guest Editor, Yoga Therapy Today
We are most pleased to announce Laurie Hyland Robertson, MS, C-IAYT, as our new Guest Editor for Yoga Therapy Today for the next two issues!
Laurie began her professional life in publishing, with editorial roles ranging from copy work to developmental editing and senior management for publications including peer-reviewed journals, graduate-level texts in healthcare and law, and the medical business magazine Physicians Practice. In 2007 she opened a holistic clinic and a yoga studio with her husband Tom, who is a doctor of chiropractic and yoga teacher.
Laurie's first experiences with yoga, in 2001, were fast-paced vinyasa classes that ultimately helped to channel excess pitta, and she now enjoys a balanced daily practice that draws on multiple traditions. She was a member of the first class in the Master of Science in Yoga Therapy program at Maryland University of Integrative Health, where she is now adjunct faculty. She is also a trained pilates instructor and has eRYT200 and RYT500 designations. Laurie practices yoga therapy with individuals and small groups, emphasizing yoga's potential to heal the pervasive effects of stress.
She is thrilled to draw on her diverse experience and perspectives for her role as guest editor for Yoga Therapy Today.
