“Laurel creates a warm and safe atmosphere in the group. Overall, I had a great experience: I felt inspired, acquired new tools, and practiced new skills I used to develop both professionally and personally.”

Darrell Jones
Coach, Minister, Spiritual Leader and Meditation Facilitator 

“I knew I needed to get a tune up on my own coaching but I wasn’t sure I could commit to daytime courses. The fact that I could download and watch missed courses at my convenience was a big selling point for me.

The Donnellan Method is a succinct and holistic way of coaching. I’m grateful it came into my life when it did. It gave me momentum to carry my own coaching to the next level."

Martel Catalano
Co-Founder of the non-profit organization Beyond My Battle

“This program shines a bright light on what it means to educate yoga teachers on the things that are often overlooked during a yoga teacher training. This was a great resource to me along my journey of defining and refining my personal and professional goals.”
