“I loved the physical exploration of equanimity and recognizing it as strength and power- not passive. [This was a] space to get out of my head and to let my body, gut and heart speak.”
“This was a quiet space to practice self-care, compassion and mindfulness during my busy, draining week. I struggle with allowing myself to feel sad, especially as regards to my history. The mindfulness and lovingkindness are helpful to that end, and I can be with it better.”
“This series helped me discover places in myself that I am not feeding.”
“[I have] more joy, more confidence doing yoga with others and less fear of being vulnerable and disabled in a yoga setting.”
“Thank you Laura. I was around completely different walks of life and learned how to chill out and be open to being present with total new new.”
“I felt like taking the series a 2nd time was super helpful for getting the tools I learned in class to ‘stick.’ I find myself noticing my reactions to other people more often and then remembering that I have the opportunity to practice lovingkindness.”
“[I gained] a better, fuller ability to be in the present with my body.”
