Located in the heart of downtown Lewisburg, PA, Laurel Limb is a peaceful yoga studio quietly tucked off Market Street. Our wide range of offerings include in-studio, outdoor and online classes for practitioners of all levels. If you are a local, or visiting, this is your place to find tranquility.
Laurene simply means The Laurel Tree or Sweet Bay (Leaf). It is an evergreen, a plant that retains green leaves throughout the year.
I am rooted to my name. While symbolic of a laurel tree, I also feel a connection to other evergreens of Pine and Spruce, and especially their offspring, the pinecone.
When I see an evergreen, I notice their trunk-the foundation, their limbs-the arms, and their exuberant green foliage-the energy.
They appear to me as a Mother of the forest, standing tall and wise, protecting the ground, and nourishing her surroundings, until the ultimate day she will fall.
They are a figure of support. When I view the mountains in the winter, I spot the Mothers peering out among the others, always enduring.
In folklore, evergreens are a symbol of fertility, wisdom and longevity. The pine tree is a symbol of peace.
In the myth, Apollo's Tree, Daphne, a nymph and goddess of wild things was known for her freedom and will to remain unmarried.
In the tale, Cupid's arrow catches Apollo, the God of Light's heart and he lays his eyes upon Daphne, falling in love.
Daphne prayed to her parents Gaea, the Goddess of Earth and Peneus, a river God for help to escape Apollo, and so she was transformed into a laurel tree.
She became a sacred tree, symbolic of transformation, triumph, and victory. Her legs-the trunk, her arms-the branches, her hair-the leaves, a complete transformation into qualities of the woods, she once roamed.
Laurel Limb is inspired by the evergreens, Mother Earth, my roots, the tales of love and my journey of transformation.
As a doula, I act as an evergreen does, nurturing, supporting and empowering a woman through her transformation.
As a yoga teacher, I seek to embody and teach the The Eight Limbs of Yoga (Patanjali). Creating a practical, yet rooted practice in the spiritual teachings of yoga.
As a tree grows new rings, sheds old bark, and deepens its roots. I allow my practice to the same. My work, and Laurel Limb are ever evolving and expanding.
