"Last year, our family had the most wonderful entree to the holiday season. We booked a private yoga session with Laura Coburn and what a special treat it was for us all. Away from all the commotion, we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the peaceful atmosphere (and lovely scents) as well as her gentle guidance. It was a special day for all, great fun, a beautiful start to our holiday, and we look forward to it being our annual retreat! Thanks so much Laura! See you soon!"
