Living with diabetes for over 20 years has given Laurel tremendous firsthand experience in managing diabetes and the complications with which it can present. From an early age Laurel recognized that exercise was her ally in diabetes mellitus management. She subsequently became a yoga therapist. Today she’s had more than 8 years’ experience in yoga therapy. This therapy she uses not only to help diabetics but also to improve the quality of life of all her clients.

Laurel worked as a school teacher for the Barbados Educational System for over 5 years. She also founded and co- managed a successful yoga business for 5 years. The qualities she cultivated in both jobs enable her today to empower her patients to better health. Her uncanny ability to combine the health benefits of acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy and yoga therapy makes her a strong advocate for positive change in the lives of her patients.
