A testimonial offering from a Senior Kripalu Teacher, Life Long Practitioner, Lineage Holder, Former Kripalu President & Author. Someone I have the blessing to spend abundant time studying with & assisting.
The Kripalu Yoga tradition includes a wealth of practices that help you not only get fit but find success in all areas of life. I've watched as Laura Mushenko has sought out and studied with many of the best and most senior Kripalu teachers. In the process, she has grown and gained skills that are broader and deeper than those of a typical yoga instructor. As a teacher, Laura represents what authentic yoga has always been: a way to transform your whole life.

A sharing of personal experience from a client...
I had it all on paper. But I was confused. I felt anxious, stressed, busy, unhappy, unfulfilled. I kept trying different things and I just couldn’t make myself feel better. Deep, deep, DEEP down inside I knew there had to be a way to simply feel better.
I decided to try yoga with Laura. I went to that first class and I distinctly remember the feeling afterward. What I felt was peace, calm, quiet. My mind had been so busy and active; it was going in a thousand different directions. One hour of yoga had given my mind a much-needed break. It was the first time I felt the feeling of a quiet mind in my 36 years on Earth.
Other yoga classes I had attended were focused on the more physical aspect of the poses. It seemed I was always doing the pose wrong somehow, or not being able to hold the pose long enough. This was different. This was a place where all mistakes were okay, it was all okay. I was there, I was trying and that was absolutely enough.
In the 4 ½ years since that first class, I’ve continued with yoga and have done some coaching. In coaching, I spent time one on one with Laura. She helped me get quiet and listen to myself – my words, my actions. I learned I already had the power and the wisdom inside to make the changes that needed to be made. I was in charge here. I took responsibility. I gave myself a break. I gave myself a million breaks. It felt like relief.
From the outside, it may not look like much has changed - same house, same family, same stuff. This was an inside job, a change in the way I looked at things. It started with seeing myself differently. There are no perfect days now, just like there were no perfect days then. I just deal with things differently. My days feel lighter and easier. I appreciate everything. I forgive and I let go. And it all feels so free.
