about

Hello! I’m Laurel.

I’m a multi-modality movement and meditation instructor, intuitive energy worker, and intentional massage practitioner. I’d love to share these tools of empowerment and self-care with YOU.

My offerings are trauma-aware and influenced by modern biomechanics, pain science, western psychology and neuroscience. As I respectfully honour my roots as a yoga teacher and Reiki master, I believe that the spaces where knowledge intersect are points of magic. The work that I do is rooted in the unveiling of limiting patterns and personal empowerment.

My role as a guide is not to lead you to enlightenment, but to meet you where you are and lift you up. Where self-commitment is met in a safe and loving space, free of judgement, we are free to challenge ourselves in ways that spill over into all areas of our lives.

Please join me in the magic and science of movement, energy, self-awareness and relaxation.

My Mission Statement

I am committed to serving the person who is in front of me as they are, regardless of age, colour, gender, religion or ability.

I strive to keep my offerings non-denominational, non-appropriative and evidence-based, while still leaving room for magic and curiosity.

I will never pedestal myself or position myself as a guru. In our sessions, your own experience is the leader, and it will never be judged or invalidated.

A relationship based on honesty and trust, held in a supported environment with ongoing communication is valued above all else. While I may ask you to challenge yourself, we will move forward together at a pace that suits your uniqueness, fostering your capacity for self-awareness, personal growth and self-love.

Empowerment Through Awareness

My offerings are rooted deeply in attention. Whether it’s noticing the space around us and how we react to it, or noticing more delicate sensations within the body, much can be revealed through our own intentional awareness.

Bringing into the light subconscious movement patterns, energetic responses and expired belief structures is key in creating a life that you choose.

Together we will unveil and honour how your life story has informed the way you move through the world, and respectfully turn away from habit and into a place of personal agency.
