Laura Head Shot
Hey there! I'm thrilled you're here.

I'm Laura Caufield-Lewis.

My journey into yoga wasn't a straight line—I started out in the world of professional dance, immersing myself in musical theater, film, and television. But as much as I adored that world, I found myself drawn to the business and legal side of the entertainment industry.

It was amidst the whirlwind of the film business that I discovered yoga back in 1998. Stress was a constant companion in those fast-paced days, and yoga became my sanctuary, my oasis of calm. That initial spark of curiosity blossomed into a deep passion, leading me to pursue certification in yoga studies from YogaWorks in Santa Monica, California.

But my journey didn't stop there. I delved into various modalities of the healing arts, exploring meditation, breathwork (pranayama), Ayurveda, and Pilates. In 2023?, I became a certified Pilates instructor with Club Pilates in Santa Barbara.

Drawing on over 25 years of dedicated practice, I founded Sacred Garden—a grassroots organization in Santa Barbara. For me, it's about more than just physical fitness and the journey is ongoing—a lifelong pursuit of learning, exploration, and giving back.
 

It's my calling to share what I've learned, to inspire others to take action, and to be stewards for positive change. Through small acts of service, we can make a world of difference.

My mission? To help you become the best version of yourself. Whether you're stepping onto the mat for the first time or you're a seasoned pro, I'll meet you where you are and together, we'll build a practice that supports you living your best life—both on and off the mat.

I'm honored to share my knowledge and passion with you. You can find me (link) teaching group classes at Club Pilates Santa Barbara and Goleta locations, offering community classes, and leading wellness retreats. Let's embark on this journey together—toward wellness, growth, and making a difference in the world.
