WHAT LAURIE'S STUDENTS ARE SAYING:
Just wanted you to know that I am now a patient of Hospice Care, and yoga is unfortunately is a difficult activity for me to contemplate in the near future.
I have always thought that you were the best teacher ever, and still feel that way. Good health to you and yours! Anonymous - MA
In my one on one with Laurie, he listened to my questions and concerns: “How can I get strong enough to do chaturanga without messing up my shoulders?” “How can I lengthen my spine in downward dog?” “How do you improve heart-opening back bending ability after protecting yourself from dying of COVID for 14 months?” He didn’t psychoanalyze that last one, LOL, but proceeded to show me unique and innovative techniques that were just right for me."
Laurie teaches with deep knowledge of body mechanics plus empathy and humor — a winning combo. We can all learn a lot from him!"

"Laurie's Classes are fine tuned to an individual's needs on any given day." Sue Riley - Windsor
"I have to say, over the past 12 years pairing singing bowls with restorative yoga I’ve worked in the top studios around the country with instructors who are the video stars. I’m not humble bragging here but mentioning this for context....Laurie’s class yesterday was the most authentic and the closest to pure yoga I’ve ever had the delight to be a part of. He was a master yesterday. It was a true, slow restorative that gave the attendees the opportunity to slow down enough, giving them pause to discover where they needed to focus on releasing and healing. Amazing. Guests have been coming up to Stuart and I both last night and this morning so excited about class yesterday. This is in large part in Laurie’s skill and wanted to take a moment to let you know. It was a joy to work with him." - Katherine Hamer www.KatherineHamer.com
Laurie Carroll – If you haven’t taken a yoga class or meditated with this man…get yourself there! I was moved to tears by the beauty of your candlelit, New Year Salutation Class. You let everyone go where their hearts needed to go in that last hour of 2017…it was truly beautiful – special. Samantha T. Lenox, MA
I wish I had met Laurie earlier! I definitely would have gone to all of his yoga classes as his demo was absolutely wonderful and I don't typically enjoy yoga. - Rachael Mills, Zumba Teacher, New York.
I have received RAVE reviews on your outdoor yoga class....the students just loved it, and you of course :)

I’m a returning novice and Laurie’s yoga sessions have helped me restart my interest in the practice - physically, mentally and spiritually. I appreciate how each session focuses on a theme – healthy back, hips, shoulders, breathing, etc. Laurie is skilled in working with people across a range of abilities. He is able to provide very helpful guidance to those of us who are beginners, while simultaneously encouraging and challenging the more experienced people in the class. With each class I appreciate more and more the depth of Laurie’s knowledge of yoga and the human body and his ability to effectively communicate his understanding. - Duncan Mann, Pittsfield, YMCA
I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your yoga class yesterday at Soules Fitness. I walked away relaxed and enlightened regarding posture and breath! I look forward to your next class! Heather Ralph, Soules Fitness, Lee, MA
Thank you for your newest blog. They are great inspiration to me to keep going. Shelley Bafflers, YMCA
It was a great class today. I had driven 5 hours yesterday so the restful, opening poses were perfect for my state of mind and body. Lynn Connors, YMCA
