My name is Lauralyn and I’m an intuitive wellness consultant. I specialize in yoga therapy and Pilates, and provide spiritual counseling and nutritional support. I love helping people make healthy adjustments to their lifestyle, and consider new perspectives of their situations.  I work intuitively, preferring to tune into people as individuals instead of categorizing them by a book. This blog is one more way for me to provide education and support, inspiring you to make time for healing and self-care, and make inner peace a priority in your life.

Work Life

I began teaching yoga to kids as a volunteer in the ’90’s for a Boys and Girls Club in an inner city. After I was officially certified by Santa Monica Yoga, I taught yoga therapy to boxers and veterans in Los Angeles. After years running my own studio, I moved South to create the first yoga therapy program for the U.S. Army at Fort Bragg. In New York, I’ve provided trainings to international corporations and large wellness events. I love bringing yoga therapy to places where it is needed most and witnessing transformations.

My work and story overcoming personal hardships has been featured in magazines, national television and a documentary about inspirational people.

Something I’ve learned helping thousands of people around the world, from all walks of life, is we all want peace. We want to be happy. We want to feel good. We want to enjoy our lives. Without inner peace, nothing externally will bring happiness.

Home Life

My husband is a veteran and Registered Nurse who works at the V.A., helping fellow veterans every day. We live with our two rescued Chihuahuas, Minnie and Gracie who keep us thoroughly entertained.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you find exactly what you need today.
