  • Who We Are

    The MACCenter is a community-oriented non-profit organization that is proud to serve the Manson area. Opening its doors in January of 2013 the MACCenter has proven to be the perfect solution to rehabilitate a portion of the vacated elementary school and “create” a much needed community health and fitness center.

    Within two short months the MACCenter became the hub of the community boasting over 200 active memberships. The MACC Board and Staff look forward to providing adults, youths and families with a welcoming place to enhance their recreation, personal well-being and fitness activities.

    Yoga Instructor

    Laura Horan
    I began my yoga journey in 2010 as a yoga student. I’ve always been interested in health and wellness, and I’ve exercised all my adult life. But when I found yoga, I was hooked. I began teaching in 2014. I enjoy sharing the mind-body-breath benefits of yoga, and I truly believe yoga is for everyone. I promote yoga as a stand alone health and wellness practice or as a supplement, making any health and exercise program even better. I have certifications in Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga from National Exercise Trainers Association as well as further study in Gentle Yoga and Meditation. In 2018, I received my 200 Hour RYT license specializing in Vinyasa, and am registered with the National Yoga Alliance. Off the mat, I work for the Manson Northwest Webster as Communications Director and am also active in Horan Farms, our family farming operation. I enjoy being active, spending time with my family, and finding random places to drop into a yoga posture. My husband, Joe and I, have 2 daughters and six grandchildren.
