with those on their healing journey. She practices as an integrative psychotherapist, incorporating

exercise, breath-work, mantra and meditation. The result is an expanded sense of joy, a flow in the natural rhythm of life and
a remembrance of what innate wisdom feels like. Laurel brings joy, acceptance and a calm energy to the yoga space.
