Meet Lawrence

Lawrence Muñoz is yoga and qigong practitioner, teacher, earth lover, outdoor enthusiast, father and husband.  As an RYT 500 yoga teacher, he passionately offers his learnings and wisdom to everyone, from curious beginner to consistent yogi explorer, to experience the wellness, healing and transformative benefits of breath, movement and awareness.  Lawrence found yoga after one of his cycling student’s encouraged him to try it as a way to help manage ongoing chronic pain resulting from a lower back injury.  An endurance athlete since youth, Lawrence was drawn into the practice and his inner being through a yogic experience which united his soul, breath and body with everything else around him. He became a life-long student and soon felt called to share the learnings of his practice with others. He completed his 200 and 300 hour Yoga Alliance Certification through Jennifer Prugh’s Joy of Yoga Teacher Training as well as Holden Qigong’s 200 Hour Teacher Training program.  Teaching at local yoga studios, fitness centers, corporate/small businesses, Senior Living Communities, Community Shelters and one on one, Lawrence inspires movement and stillness both physically and energetically. He continues to come to his mat daily as student for meditation, ashtanga, yin and qigong practice.
