I am passionate about helping people deepen their mind/body connection and using creativity for healing. Dance and music have always been an important part of my life that I have explored as a student, performer, and dance/movement therapist. I am happiest when I am digging in my garden, playing the drums with a samba group, or performing mixed ability dance.
Workshops and intensives that incorporate dance/movement therapy techniques
What to expect from a workshop with Laurel
As a board-certified dance/movement therapist, I lead workshops and intensives that incorporate dance/movement therapy techniques to engage in self-exploration and self-care. This will include guided movement practices, creative processes, group discussion, and self-reflection. At times this can look like a joyful dance party, and at other times this can look like quiet meditation. Every directive will always be an invitation to engage in a way that feels comfortable for you, in a safe, supportive environment, with you being the expert in your own experience.
Fun fact about Laurel
I am a proud Mom to two kiddos, and I performed as a passista dancer with Austin Samba at Austin Carnaval 8 months pregnant in heels!
