Living My Dream Yoga

Program Reviews

"Just completed an intense, joyful, hopeful weekend using Katie's book as a touchstone, and integrating yoga and interactive activities. Very nicely done! Many thanks to Katie and also to Chris Connolly of Living my Dream Yoga in Lowell, MA. The two of you work well together, and being with you both was healing and helpful".

“Managing stress by learning how to fulfill the physical, spiritual, mental and emotional needs was the goal of the program.  The weekend workshop was a concise, thought provoking, and reflective opportunity to explore deeper how to balance these needs in a no-pressure, relaxing atmosphere. I feel that I was provided tools that would help me to understand more fully how important it is for me to try to recognize all these needs and to reflect often and adjust in order to feel the balance I so desire.  Katie and Chris make a great team!  They complement each other’s personalities and teaching styles thus enhancing even more that sense of calm and balance”.  

"Last night Jackson and I attended a Mother/Son hosted at Mind, Body, Spirit Counseling with Katie LaPlant, LICSW.  We spend 3 hours at this amazing self-renewal workshop interacting and learning about stress and the body.  We played games, meditated, took quizzes, shared about each other.  Jackson loved it and wants to know when we can do it again.  I highly recommend attending one of Katie's retreats, mother/son or mother/daughter workshops.
