Meditation on the Run is the brainchild of Brian and Laurie Shiers.
It is the first in a series of programs that combine their collective passions, talents and interests.
Brian Shiers has been formally trained in esoteric meditation methods originating in the far and middle-east for over eighteen years, and is one of only fifteen people selected to participate in the first meditation teacher training program at UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center (2011).
Serving as the Personal Training Director for the Toluca Lake Tennis Club & Sports Center since 1995 and as the Athletic Ambassador for lululemon athletica since 2010, Brian has an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and specializes in functional exercise, TRX Suspension Training, Muay Thai kickboxing, and the 5K. He has appeared in Shape, Fitness, Men’s Fitness, and Los Angeles magazines, as well as CBS This Morning, KABC Morning News, E! Daily News, and the Style Channel’s Celebrity Destinations. His clients include William Shatner, Neil Patrick Harris, Lauren Graham, Ellen Degeneres, Blair Underwood, Katherine Heigl, Mariska Hargitay, John Stamos, and Maria Bello.
Laurie Shiers is a writer, entrepreneur and marathon mama. After completing her first marathon in 2008, she was hooked and finished three more within a year. In 2009, a few months after she and Brian adopted their son Bodhi from Thailand, a sleep deprived but determined Laurie ran the Boston Marathon. She followed that up with a PR in napping and spa treatments.
An adventure lover at heart, Laurie’s latest travels have taken her on a more reflective, inward journey. She meets regularly with a Buddhist meditation teacher and is currently enrolled in the Teacher Training program at Rising Lotus Yoga in Sherman Oaks. When not on the mat or on the road, she can be found at her desk penning children’s books inspired by her luminous little boy.
