Laura Teusink is a former Radio City Rockette and executive managing editor (National Geographic Adventure; Travel + Leisure; Departures) whose love of yoga and mindfulness meditation drew her away from the corporate world and to the world of wellness. She is a 200-hour certified yoga instructor (Sondra Loring, Sadhana Center for Yoga and Meditation) and completed a 200-hour Teaching Mindfulness certificate program (Ethan Nichtern, Shanté Smalls, David Perrin) in October 2018. With so much technology competing for our attention and leaving us frazzled, now more than ever, it’s important to fearlessly stand up for our own self care, both for the benefit of ourselves and those around us.
