I truly believe that everything we go through, is for a reason. It is our experiences that make us unique and yet our stories that unite us. Here's a little about mine....
Just a few years ago, my life looked and felt so much different than it is today.
Although it may have seemed like I had it all together, internally I was a mess.
I didn't know what my purpose was; I was coasting through life following all of society's rules wondering why I wasn't fulfilled (although quite successful) with my corporate job. I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster... at times inspired, hustling, and lit up, only to then feel anxious, stressed + burnt out. I was so disconnected from my higher self + my intuition that I didn't know what I truly wanted. I felt powerless, anger, hurt and shame when my parents divorced; and then fear and sadness when they both went through dis-ease. I felt lost + kept things to myself when things weren't going well. I was afraid of being vulnerable + judged. I looked for all of the answers outside of me, when all I really had to do was go within.
But just as they say, "it's always darkest before the dawn".
When I was feeling at my lowest point, I realized that I had a choice; A choice to choose to feel bad for myself, focus on all of the negative things I had been going through, or to choose to focus on creating the best case scenario.
I now realize that this was a major turning point in my life. So, I started a "year of Laura". This was the year that I began what I now realize was a self discovery journey, trying to find what lit me up and made me happy. What I found was so much more than that: self love, confidence, a deeper connection to myself, and my purpose on this planet!
During a yoga class one day, I got the download to do a yoga teacher training. I say "download" because I have no idea where that very clear thought came from, but it felt right. I was fairly new to yoga and just thought it would be a great way to deepen my practice. I had no idea that it would lead me down this completely healing path of self discovery + that it would change my life forever.
I now know that this was my higher self guiding me towards my soul's purpose as a Life Coach & that everything I had been through was to grow & expand into a higher version of myself. I had to learn how to overcome obstacles + follow my intuition, so I could create a life of freedom and abundance, and help other women do the same.
This "year of Laura" turned into years of self discovery, soul mastery + manifesting a completely new life that I'm wildly obsessed with!
I began devouring every spiritual, self development book I could find, listening to inspiring podcasts, investing in courses, masterminds, coaching programs, and multiple yoga certifications. I transformed my mindset, gained a deeper connection with my intuition, and learnt how to co-create my reality with the Universe. To this day, I continue to invest in myself not only because I'm a self development junkie, but because I am truly passionate about expansion and continuing to evolve into the next level version of myself. I believe that that is what life is all about: growth, evolving, + constantly returning to love.

Ultimately, I expanded my mind on what is possible for me and created a new path.
And if it's possible for me, it is possible for YOU.
All of this led me to where I am now:
HAPPY, FULFILLED AND FOLLOWING MY PASSION.
I quit my corporate job, built my own aligned, successful business, and am now with the man of my dreams, teaching yoga and helping other young women to transform their lives. I am a big believer in the magic of the Universe/God/Spirit/Energy/Source (whatever you want to call it!) and I know that my path was exactly as it was meant to be. Every struggle we encounter is there to teach us, guide us, and empower us.
The Universe is always working for you, and once you understand the Universal Laws and how to tap into that, you can change your whole life!
I have realized that things don't have to be hard.
There is an easier way, and the amazing thing is, that the skills and tools needed to change your life,
are already within you.
You just have to awaken to this power.
I truly know that I have been through the things that I have, in order to help you with where you are now.
It is my passion and mission to help YOU unlock your potential and quantum leap into the best version of you!
