  • Review by a Priscilla Filipe

    "Laurita is full of love and life. With a deep desire to help, she is knowledgeable and confident, both on and off the mat. Her teaching style is fluid and focused on encouraging students to digger deeper during their practice while remaining safe through alignment and respecting the body. With heart and palms radiating positive energy, her adjustments are so soothing allowing the body to gently release, a true gift. An authentic approach and totally natural in her own being, I felt completely at ease and welcomed in her presence from the moment we met. It is an absolute joy to share our space here at Intentions Yoga with Laurita. I am honored to call her a friend and work alongside one another other."

    "When I first met Laurita Gorman, I felt an immediate sense of warmth and compassion. Having heard her speak at a conference, it became evident to me further of her genuine passion and care for all that she encounters. She has a real drive to ensure that the people with whom she works with are heard and validated. Its inspiring to hear the many skills that she has adopted in order to help others. One thing that has stood out for me is her passion for those experiencing mental health issues and advocacy for the space to be made for spirituality when it comes to therapy. She has a unique niche, one that is ever growing and one that I dont doubt has touched and impacted the lives of many."

    "I had the pleasure of meeting with Laurita Gorman for a counseling session a few weeks ago. After finishing my session, I felt energized and motivated to continue positive thinking, so I can have positive changes in my life. The realization that I could be the one thing preventing myself from getting what I want in life was mind blowing. I will definitely be using Lauritas services again, and recommend her to anyone who is looking for change, to give her a try. She truly is amazing."
