Laura's classes are so powerful to me.  I am coming back from injuries, and stagnet in my body and with her classes, they are tranforming.  Her classes are about getting into your body in a gentle way and creating a deep awareness.

Esther

"Each class with Laura Christensen is a chance to go deeper, to know yourself more fully and to be an integral part of the larger community. The moment you look into her sparkling eyes, you see the depth and feel the authenticity of this radiant being! Laura truly shines like the sun and connects to her students in the most nurturing way. The joy I feel from being in her class makes me appreciate her mastery of yoga and her ability to inspire and share that love. The Careyes Yoga Retreat is high on my wish list!"

Diana

"How does one describe the essence of Laura:  beautiful, bright, shining from the heart, full of grace, joyful, loving, encouraging, inspiring, supportive, dedicated, and a truly consummate teacher and spiritual guide!  I experienced immense joy and fulfillment as a participant in Laura's 2008 Immersion and have met so many lovely friends through the Immersion and through Laura's classes.  I feel honored to be a part of the beautiful kula that surrounds Laura, and it is a privilege to be taught, uplifted, and empowered by a teacher who is so gifted and caring.  We are truly blessed to have you in our midst, Laura.  A thousand pranams to you!"

Amy

"Laura is a truly amazing, a true guru in all aspects.  She has a bright shining smile that lights up the room and makes you feel loved and welcome in her class.  Her themes are honest, heartfelt and beautifully woven throughout the class.  As a physical therapist, I can attest that she has healing hands and a thorough knowledge of therapeutics.  She is sure to keep you safe if you are recovering from injury, and will keep a watchful eye on you while you deepen your practice with her.  I had the pleasure of being a faithful student while she taught in the bay area, and will travel to Sausalito to get little bits of Laura Love!  She has an amazing ability to inspire and motivate you, which is very unique.  I can’t wait until I am able to go on a retreat with her. "

Stefano

"Laura’s resplendent power lies in her ability to invoke and bring to surface one’s own personal sense of higher awareness, coupled with a profound sense of how we are all truly and intimately interconnected with our communities and our universe. She brings to the practice of yoga an exceptional knowledge of how to properly align, strengthen, and open up the physical body, ultimately leading to a powerful expansion of gratitude, compassion, and heart forward generosity. I have had the fortunate opportunity to work with her in classes, in private sessions, and at her one-day Napa retreat. In classes, she works beautifully with the energy fields of the practitioners while simultaneously mentoring individuals to assure proper form and technique; in private sessions, she integrates specific alignment teachings and yoga perspectives with one’s own unique context of personal transformation; in her retreats, Laura brings her students to visually spectacular and therapeutic natural landscapes and therein guides her students toward a new sense of physical and spiritual rejuvenation. In essence, as a professional yoga teacher, Laura is fantastic at using both body and spirit to reveal hidden elixirs, elixirs which, when discovered and consumed, increase in bounty." 

Claire

"Laura is one of the bright, shining gems of the SF Bay Area Yoga community.  Not only does she have a wealth of knowledge about yoga and the human body, but she has an amazing ability to inspire the best in her students.  When you go to a class or retreat with Laura, you don't just get a workout of the body - you also get filled with joy, openness, and inspiration to be the best person you can be and to live your life to the fullest!  I have been blessed with many class hours with Laura, including a private lesson and a luxurious week-long retreat in the most beautiful place in Mexico, all of which I *highly* recommend!!" 

Maggie

"The privilege has been ALL mine studying, practicing and playing with Laura! As a teacher, Laura's ability to illuminate principles of alignment for harmonious integration on the mat is poignant and playful. Her classes inspire and motivate the exploration of limitless potential within mindful boundaries. Laura’s radiance is contagious and a full heart is one common by-product of any time spent with her. From her warmth and approachability as a teacher, to her depth of knowledge in yogic philosophy and asana, Laura opens a door to a whole new practice for each student! Please take any opportunity available to meet her! I would take another Immersion with her in a heartbeat! With much gratitude."

Gillian

"YOU ARE THE BEST YOGA TEACHER THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN ! You thank me/us....but what you don't realize is that you have changed the way I look at life and showed me what it is to enjoy every breathing moment to its fullest." 

Leila

"We are so lucky to have Laura right here in Sausalito! She is one of the best teachers out there. I have been studying with her for almost three years and my practice has come a long way in that time.  Laura is one of the most dedicated, passionate and inspirational yoga teachers out there. Perhaps my favorite thing about Laura is that she truly lives the yoga in her own life. She allows the teachings to inspire how she lives. She sees the good and the light in all people and situations, and has an amazing ability to draw the best out of all of her students.  Laura's enthusiasm and high energy level are contagious! No matter how tired or out of sorts I feel going into her class, I always feel more fully myself coming out.  Laura's classes are incredibly challenging, though not in a way that feels hard. I am so engaged throughout the class that I don't have a moment to realize how hard I am working until it is all over. Simply standing in Tadasana works me harder than a whole flow might in other classes. Best of all, Laura creates a real sense of community in her classes. I always feel like I am just playing with my friends, and being supported by  this wonderful teacher."

Gina

"I absolutely loved the retreat in Careyes that you gifted us with.  It was life changing and one of the most amazing experiences of my life.  I had no idea the retreat would be filled with so much joy, fun, deep inner growth, reflection, friendship, beauty and love. Magic happens when we are open to receiving it as you said it would and it certainly happened in Careyes.

 

I am truly a changed women and feel a sense of contentment and peace as I get back into my life here at home.  You've given us so much to reflect on, as well as, tools to help us find the true meaning of happiness and a good life.  I realize how much what we think and feel can impact others and the world around us.

 

You are such an extraordinary women and I truly appreciate all the effort, energy, hard work, knowledge, and spirit you bring to the yoga classes and retreats you work so hard on.  What an amazing present as you continuously inspire, challenge, teach, coach & motivate us to be our true and better selves.  I especially love the themes and words you interweave as we move in and out of our poses.  From the beginning to the end of class you are a beacon of light and love for us all and you help us to be the best versions of ourselves.

 

I had no idea the retreat and Careyes would be anywhere near what it was.  The absolutely delicious, healthy and fresh food that we all got to eat as we deepened our friendship with each other around the fabulous round table, three times a day.   How wonderful to eat, laugh, (laugh some more) & talk looking at the gorgeous sparking ocean, infinity pool, stunning landscape and pristine grounds. 

 

I travel quite often and expect good food & service. This was by far the best ever!  Not only was the staff professional and cordial, but they were so warm and friendly. They went over and above what was expected.

It was such a delight to go back to our beautiful rooms and see our bed turned back with flowers and greens spread across it.  Anything we needed was done for us.  It was incredible how we never had to ask for anything as they always knew what we needed and wanted.

 

Going out on the boat was so much fun.  I loved the show the dolphins put on for us and watching the enormous whales as they came up for a breath.  What a blast and memory to go to the private home and

beach where they catered another mouth watering and fresh lunch on the ocean.  Wow!!  

 

I am so excited and happy to say that I made lifelong friends and I can't wait for us to be together again.  I look forward to us continuing on the journey we all started in Careyes and thank you Laura from the bottom of my heart for all you did for us and continue to do to make this world a better place.

 

I've already spoke to some of my friends and I would love to sign up for next year!"

Lani

"Every class with Laura is more inspiring. With her incredible physical knowledge, keen intuition, and  fierce dedication -  she somehow is able to bring out the very best in every student.  So much gratitude that she has chosen teaching yoga as her gift to us all."

Heather

"Laura is an incredibly skilled, dedicated, and seriously playful yoga teacher.  In my experience, it is rare to encounter a yoga teacher who has the kind of integrated depth of knowledge about asana, philosophy, and anatomy, and who works so hard to impart that knowledge to her students.  Her classes are challenging, affirming, and filled with instruction that will make your body feel better while you are practicing, and off the mat as well.  She is a teacher of the highest order!  If you can, I highly recommend private sessions to translate what works for your particular body, to deal with any therapeutic concerns, and/or to simply deepen and integrate your knowledge of yoga -- they are invaluable."

Amy

"Laura is a teacher with unusual integrity and heart. It is rare in my experience to come upon an instructor with such unwavering mindfulness of the emotional, physical, and spiritual dimensions. In every class with Laura, I feel inspired to stretch beyond previous limits.  She creates an atmosphere of warmth, generosity, and positivity. Laura is also tough! She models what it is like to move through obstacles with strength and grace, and she promotes energy and resilience in her students. Laura has a wonderful sense of humor and a nurturing and loving personality. With all these elements she brings together, to engage in yoga with Laura means to enter into a process of profound transformation."

Jane

"Laura has been my favorite yoga teacher since my first class with her two years ago.  I don't know how she does it, but she always manages to evoke the best effort I can give. And I leave her classes all sparkly and happy. Laura's teaching comes from deep within her, sweet and strong and fun! While I can see that she plans her classes carefully (she never seems to be winging it), Laura is always on the spot, attentive to the needs of each individual, weaving the present moment into her artful lesson plan. "

Ariane

"I have been a student of Laura's for two years now, and had the great privilege and honor of being a part of her 108-hour Yoga Immersion in fall of 2007 and also spent a week on retreat in Careyes, Mexico with her in April of this year.  She is a wonderful, loving, passionate, and inspiring teacher, clear in her instruction and very hands-on, who manages to deliver a personal lesson to each person even in a group class.  I never fail to be delighted and challenged when I practice with her.  She is also so very good at building community, and I so enjoy being part of the kula that she has created - I've made so many lovely friends, thanks to Laura. She's the best!"

Dia

"Laura's skillful understanding and interpretation of yoga asana, philosophy, and pranayama are beautifully interwoven in her teaching. She joyfully shares her knowledge, offering the benefit of her deepening breadth of commitment and dedication to the yoga principles and philosophy." 

Kyle

“Laura's instruction is the foundation of my Asana Practice. She has given me knowledge of Asana that I take with me every where I go, and all I need to do to access it is step onto my yoga mat. I cherish practicing with her because, to me, she is the embodiment of what it means to live Yoga.” 

Dan

"I wanted to write and let you know how much I enjoyed the retreat and what it meant to me. I had no idea really what I was in store for, Careyes being my first vacation of this nature. I assumed it was going to be mostly fun in the sun style with some yoga thrown in for physical benefit. In fact, during the week in Mexico, that is mostly how I felt. While I was there, I was just beginning to become aware that I was changing; my mood was improving and the way I interacted with other people was benefiting. It wasn't until after I got home that it occurred to me that six days of heart opening exercises-physical and spiritual-really changes one's outlook. For me, the whole retreat was a life-affirming, emotionally-uplifting experience, and I am still riding that wave. So, specifically, I wanted to thank you for coming into my life, having your brand of yoga be so immediately accessible, and running a retreat that was so approachable, enjoyable and clandestinely life changing."

Karen

"I am deeply in gratitude for being able to practice yoga with Laura. She is a beautiful, bright and shining and spirited woman with a lot to share with the world. Everything she does is always with a full heart and a positive intention. Even on her "cloudy days" her inner radiance always shines through. I am happy to have found such a wonder-full teacher and to be in Laura's presence is always inspirational and uplifting. Thank you Laura for sharing your light with your world and always remember how deeply you are appreciated and loved by so many. Wishing you much Joy, Love and Happiness in your life always. You are the essence of Shri!"

Anne

The best piece of advice I received before moving to the Bay Area two years ago was to find Laura Christensen and start taking her yoga class immediately.  Practicing yoga with Laura and everything that encompasses has been my rock.  Not only is her level of instruction far beyond wildest expectations, and the kula that surrounds her a network of friends one could only dream of, the care she has for her students is off the charts.  She inspires me every day to be stronger, more dedicated, and live with integrity.  I was fortunate enough to go on retreat to Careyes, Mexico with Laura in November 2010.  It was the most amazing week of my life.  By far the most breathtaking, awe-inspiring, restful and energizing vacation imaginable! November 2012?  I can’t wait!"

Birgitta

"Laura teaches from her heart.  She openly and willingly shares her deep knowledge of yoga with each and every student.  Laura allows everyone to shine."

Brian

"Laura is the consummate student AND teacher and her dedication to her personal practice, education, and journey benefits us all who learn from her and basque in her bright light. Don't be fooled by the soothing calmness that opens each of her classes; she'll get you working soon enough and guide you to the edges you didn't know you even had, all in a very safe, fun and expert manner.  All levels of yoga practicioners, from the first timer to the enlightened, will benefit from her wisdom, her exacting knowledge of body mechanics and her heart centered energy.  You'll leave her class lighter and happier, guaranteed."

Esther

"Infinite Gratitude to Laura, a truly gifted teacher, whose generous spirit and light radiates to each student through her lustrous eyes, warm smile, and deep understanding of yoga. Through her joyful and genuine teaching, she empowers us to find the beauty and strength within ourselves, so that we may inspire and reflect that in others. my practice has gotten stronger since studying with Laura. She is highly skilled, not only in the art of yoga but in therapeutics as well~a real gem!" 

Lauretta

"Bringing it? Oh, Laura has brought it!! The best part about Laura is that she has the beautiful balance between the muscular and organic- she gets you to play your edge and you enjoy it.  Wherever Laura goes, a community follows because that is what she inspires.  She takes the time to learn about each of her students and finds celebration and enjoyment from each of their uniqueness- you feel like the best version of yourself in her class.  She just rocks!"

Marci

"What I got most out of Laura's teachings in a word, is connection; the profound connection between body and soul/heart within.  From Laura I have learned that Yoga practice is not just about what you do with your body but about who you are in life and what that body allows you to contribute back to others.  The connectedness between us and within us.  Thank you, Laura!"

Robin

"I admire Laura for her incredibly positive and grateful attitude, her attention to detail, and her putting her full strength, effort and gracefulness into everything she does.  I have learned so much from her about living life by practicing yoga with her!"

Michael

"The immersion rocked me.  It was so well organized and the method as taught through Laura was so clear and illuminating.  The immersion brought such integration to my practice and life.  The philosophy and asana are so meaningfully woven in this method that I discovered my experience in the world and on the mat to be richly informing each other. Thank you." 

Ariane

"Thank you for this amazing experience, Laura.  It has given me so much in so many more ways than I could have expected.  I am profoundly changed, revealed, shiny and bright."

 

Wendy

"Laura is an incredibly skilled and inspiring Yoga instructor.  She not only has a amazing wealth of knowledge regarding the body and alignment principles, but also possesses an in depth understanding of yoga philosophy and spirituality.  She exudes warmth and enthusiasm and is truly inspirational!  I highly recommend taking an immersion with Laura."

Nancy

"Laura Christensen is 5 stars, "as good as it gets".  Her aim is to know your name, to work with you and see your progress.  Her classes are your PT, your anti depressant, your community and your upliftment that you take home.  Her knowledge is incredible, she assessed and solved my tight hip flexor/lower back problem which I had been struggling with for 3 years and in less then 30 seconds I had my solution and freedom from that pain.  I feel very lucky to have a teacher at her caliber right here in Marin.   She is someone who means what she says and says what she means, she walks the talk. "

Joyce

"Laura did an amazing job planning and executing this retreat.  Some of you already know how dedicated she is to yoga, but having spent 2 weeks with her in Careyes and seeing how she prepared daily and was continually wanting to provide each of us with a meaningful and enjoyable experience both in the studio and at our villas was inspiring, - I understood that her deepest dedication is to her students.  I know I’m one among many that hold Laura in their heart and in high regard.  She has a gift for giving much attention to the science and technique of Yoga, opening her heart to all and honoring community and all the meanwhile, wishing she could do more.  In my estimation, Laura embodies the 3 A’s like nobody’s business."

Nancy

"Laura embodies true integrity and soul, she is a true seeker and teacher who says what she means and means what she says: she walks the talk. To spend a week with such a gifted, dedicated teacher and person and with other like minded wonderful people that Laura attracts, in the idyllic and elegant setting of Careyes was just pure joy and worth every cent, and every moment.   It was a chance to deepen the connection to oneself and at the same time to open and deepen a connection to others in the yoga community.  Everyone there experienced an opening to Grace, like lovely flowers who suddenly come into bloom, and in that place of thankfulness to be simply alive.   The bond and acknowledgment of each persons path and greatness was shining all the way home from a yoga practice fueled by intention, fun and endless supplies of superb guacamole!"

Angela

“In the presence of Laura, I can't help feel filled with love, inspiration, happiness, knowledge, and passion for life.  To have this experience in such a magical place as Careyes has been a true gift.  I love you Laura.  I love you Careyes." 

Justine

"Truly a buoyant spiritual experience.  Working with Laura and her detailed instructions, supportive manner and playful nature physically transformed me.  By the end of the retreat I carried myself in a new, easeful, painfree way.   From the moment we arrived, Careyes embraced us with its warmth and style. Each day the yoga carried us to a new place in our minds and bodies.  Our group flowed really well together and leaving was probably the biggest challenge of the week.  I can't wait to come back again! Thanks Laura for such a special week."

Sheri

"Whenever I have spent time with you, it has been a delight! Thank you for all of the talks, encouragement, nurturing, and all of your loving kindness. That's what brought me to yoga and to Careyes.  How wonderful it is that we get to come here and just be together!  When my mind and body were so tired and in need of nourishment, Careyes came. Opening myself up to all the beauty of this place felt like overwhelming comfort -- deep and all sustaining.  I was put in a place where I could heal and rejuvenate.  This place makes you crave life deeper.  The yoga recomitted me to hopefulness and enthusiasm. Thank you dear friend for sharing your loving heart with us, for serving us so graciously, and for being your amazing self!"

Deborah

"I want to give you my heartfelt thanks for an amazing experience at your yoga retreat in Careyes.  I’m not sure how you did it but the week managed to be relaxing yet strengthening, fun yet spiritual.

 

Careyes itself was absolutely spectacular.  It is a bit of heaven nestled in a rocky cove looking out to the Pacific Ocean.  I loved the dining and living space overlooking the infinity pool and the ocean beyond with no wall to come between the open space and a breathtaking view.

 

The staff was there for us day and night and cooked us such delicious meals with healthy ingredients that satisfied us completely.  We had lots of good energy to swim in the ocean all afternoon, in the pool under the sky in the evening, not to mention a few hours of yoga each morning.

 

Your yoga classes were truly unlike any I have had.   The life perspectives you spoke about to preface the class resonated with all of us.  The specific movements you worked on with us improved my poses with no discomfort!  I felt increasingly stronger and firmer as the week went on.  And your Restorative Yoga had me meditating deeply.

 

Lastly I share with you how much I appreciated all the friends I made during the week.  We told stories and laughed so hard and shared life experiences that made me consider new ways of looking at life.  Everyone was so open and sincere and accepting of one another. You must draw people like this into your retreats with your own unconditional acceptance and positive way of being.  I am so grateful to have been a part of your week Laura.  I will treasure it always."

Jen

"I am so grateful to Laura for finding this magical place.  Practicing yoga in such a healing space has been a wonderful experience.  She is such a gifted individual who shines through the teachings of Anusara yoga.  We have been blessed by her support, guidance and knowledge this week.  Thank you Laura for teaching from your heart and showing us the way to shine brighter!"

Javier

"Laura’s retreats are not just about practicing Yoga, they are an opportunity to be bathed in the energy, passion and love that she brings to her practice as a teacher."

Jason

"What a phenomenal experience!  You have a brilliant energy and spirit that made an awesome place like Careyes even more magical.  Every detail…yoga, logistics, people, food, activities…it was all thought of and it all exceeded expectations.  THANK YOU for an experience that will hold in my life and in my marriage forever.  All my best.."

Lauren

"The Careyes Retreat Experience was exceptional.  Down to the breathtaking beauty, amazing service, and Laura's sri-filled teaching.  I have been fully rejuvenated and inspired.  I am so excited to take this radiant energy home and share it with the world!" 

Lisa

"What a blessing to spend a week with Laura improving poses, making new friends, learning new poses, and basking in the splendor that is Careyes!  I feel inspired!  Thank you.  Thank you."

Todd

"I got to learn what "Inner Body Bright" means, both physically and emotionally, from Laura, who is a master of infecting everyone around her with an endless supply of positive energy!  The week has been filled with a wealth of technical knowledge, philosophy and community all set in a truly magical location that is Careyes.  I want to thank Laura for all the energy she poured into making this a truly magical experience.  I hope to be back next year."

Christine

"Laura took each of us into her heart and with a special blend of challenging and nurturing, gave us all wonderful instruction and support.  She truly shines her light on everyone around her.  I came to the retreat a bit worried about an upper back problem, and was amazed that by paying attention to Laura's instruction on alignment, I experienced a week of pain-free, intense yoga.  Now I am bringing that guidance into my yoga practice back home.  I am so grateful for that.  And Careyes, oh my how beautiful it is!"

Molly

"I signed up for this retreat after Laura came to teach a workshop in my town and I found her yoga teaching to be in depth, advanced, with clear direction, intelligent and thoughtful sequencing and integrity. I have my own business and a 3 and a 5 year old.  This means for close to 6 years I haven't had a chance to really fully rest, recharge, and take care of myself without a million other things going on and people to take care of.  The pictures she sent looked wonderful, and I signed up not knowing much about it beyond that the timing fit my schedule and I needed some beach time and rest - it was actually a 40th birthday present to myself!

 

Careyes - Careyes is amazing. Wild, exclusive, magical, peaceful and raw.  The place and our house exceeded my expectations.  I felt like I was in Italy almost - the villas are beautiful, the area clean and nice, and the food amazing. The water was warm and clean. The sand beaches perfect. For the first four days, I relaxed into delicious, deep rest and sleep.  The staff met every need, each meal was fresh, delicious and satisfying. Every afternoon there was beach time. Laura's afternoon restorative classes in the late afternoons before dinner was perfect. We all zoned into deep relaxation in the poses and with the props each afternoon. The yoga studio itself is amazing - surrounded by butterflies, in the banana tree grove, and looking into deep, green, lush forest. Laura kept a balance with our needs between scheduling fun outings to see the area, and wonderful yoga sessions.  

 

The staff at our villa was amazing.  They took care of everything, put up with all our special requests and went above and beyond being attentive and friendly.  I appreciated their attention to detail and warm presence.  I felt spoiled, in a good way.

 

The length of time was perfect - not too long to be away from the family, but enough to recharge.  I hold this experience in my heart with gratitude and appreciation and look forward to repeating it again.  It's an ideal retreat for mothers of young kids - if the husbands are on board!  ; ) Thank you Laura for your wonderful light presence, excitement and enthusiasm, and wonderful asana sequencing.  My body feels strong and light, and my spirit the same."

Alex

"Laura is a wonderful teacher.  What I like foremost about her classes is that she combines that she uses positive reinforcement while maintaining complete rigor and challenge of the practice.  She’s true to spiritual aspects of yoga, while providing overly thorough and intense physical exercise routine.  She seems very knowledgeable about the human body and about the practice; her instructions are clear and helpful.  In addition, she is a very advanced yogi herself and watching her demonstrate a pose is inspiring as well as instructive.  Laura is also a very warm and friendly person and creates a great atmosphere in her class.  I felt that the retreat at Careyes was particularly helpful tome.  The program was very well designed on spiritual, intellectual and physical levels.  The retreat environment allowed the classes to proceed at a pace that was both physically challenging and allowing for thorough exploration.  The classes very successfully built up on each other and I was able to maintain mindful of recent lessons while exploring further.  I feel like I made a very large progress in my practice and I would recommend Laura to anybody who is committed to challenge and exploration.  Thank you Laura!"

Jami

"I am a Yoga Instructor and although I’ve known of Laura for many years, it was just recently that I had the opportunity to take a workshop with her.  From that moment, I knew I was in the presence of something extraordinarily special.  I was so positively impacted by her teachings that I signed up for her retreat in Careyes, Mexico, taking place four weeks later.  Laura completely embodies what Yoga is:  Grace, Joy, Art and Devotion.  Her teachings are precise and clear, positive and life affirming.  Her themes are spiritual yet relatable to the human experience.  After each class, I am entirely nourished; body, mind, heart, and I continue to contemplate what I’ve learned, physically and spiritually long after I’ve left.  No matter the size of the class, Laura connects and engages fully with each student.  Careyes was an amazing experience, building community and friendships in an awe-inspiring environment of exquisite beauty and serenity.  But, I would happily study yoga with Laura anywhere, as she has enriched and enlivened my yoga practice, teachings and my life.  She is a gift and it is truly a blessing to be able to receive her radiant light, and, therefore, to acknowledge my own light.  So much Gratitude and Love Always!!!"

Eunice

"What a fabulously luxurious time in Careyes with Laura and the beautiful group!  It was a truly glorious experience that literally 'awed' me in so many ways. From the absolutely stunning vistas, the gorgeous villas, the rockin' yoga, the delicious meals, the wonderful staff, the kula—I could go on and on.  It was so apparent that Laura wanted to make everyone's time there special.  Her energy, enthusiasm, bright smile, dedication to teaching, generosity and sharing spirit were present at every moment. Worth every penny!"

Veronica

"I wanted to come to Laura's retreat in Careyes because I had heard how beautiful the place was and I had done the Immersion with her.  Now that I have been to Careyes, I can say the place is magic but my heart and body have been re-energized and opened by Laura's gentle but strong teaching.  Loved it!!"

Gillian

“Life always seems to plop yoga in my life at the most auspicious and appropriate of times.  I could not imagine spending my spring break with a more amazing group of women - let alone, in a more amazing place.  The studio, the food, the light, the staff, the teacher...  I am convinced that there simply cannot be a teacher more approachable, more passionate, more inspiring, more real, more shri(!!!) than Laura.  I am grateful to have her in my life, in general - but to spend a week with her in a place so magnificent...words could never do justice!  Literally, the most healing and restorative week I can remember.”

Jennifer

"Oh my gosh Laura your retreat transformed me!  It was so amazing to be with you and the other women for those 5 glorious days.  I now practice every morning and meditate before even looking in the direction of my computer.   Thank you, thank you for all your help, love, talent and grace of being so authentic."

Tal

“… the magic and beauty that we've shared there really stayed with me, and it gives me a sense of sweetness and strength that is all permeating and helps me 'float' even when things are less than blissful. I cherish that and am so grateful that you've opened the door for me to get there.”  

Dana

“Laura attracts an amazing, generous, fun community wherever she is teaching, there are smiles, excitement and love in the room, she has a gift to bring the best out in people.   The retreat was an experience to let our lights shine, uncloak the heart fully and get in there with ourselves and when that happens with 13 women there is one awesome party happening.  The combination of Careyes’ natural magical and healing energy and Laura´s unwavering devotion and support to her students you definitely feel loved and nurtured and having that for 7 days is bliss.” 

Jane

“Five whole days of yoga with Laura was such a dream! There was plenty of time to cover the basics and still plenty of time to push beyond. And what a gorgeous spot on the planet, for the yoga, for our yummy meals, and for everything in between. Each asana, each bite, each moment in Careyes was pure beauty.”
