Laura Cornell, (spiritual name Yogeshwari) is an award-winning speaker, author, and sacred business mentor who helps women heal ~ body, mind, and soul ~ so they can contribute to healing the planet. She is Founder of Divine Feminine Yoga, where she has directed seven online conferences empowering women through Yoga, and where she offers coaching, retreats, online courses and leadership training for women worldwide. It brings Laura great joy to help other women find and live their soul’s purpose.

In previous work as Founder of the Green Yoga Association, Laura spurred a national movement towards Green Yoga studios, produced two major conferences on Yoga and ecology, and sold 10,000 non-toxic Yoga mats through her living room. She has been featured in Yoga Journal, Yogi Times, L.A. Yoga, and Common Ground Magazines.

Laura holds a Masters degree in East-West Psychology and a Doctorate in Religion and Philosophy. She is a certified 500-hour Kripalu Yoga teacher and Integrative Yoga Therapist. She is also a Heartfulness Meditation Practitioner. She has taught at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, the Yoga Philosophy Programs of Loyola Marymount University and the California Institute for Integral Studies, the Integral Yoga Teachers Conference, and the MC Mehta Center and Mahatma Gandhi Peace Center in India.

In her 20s, Laura suffered from anxiety and depression, chronic fatigue and an eating disorder. Forging her own authentic path of healing, she discovered Yoga’s transformative power to reconnect her with her feminine being and bring her home to wholeness. The book Moon Salutations: Women’s Journey Through Yoga to Healing, Power, and Peace tells that story.


Moon Salutations: Women’s Journey Through Yoga to Healing, Power, and Peace

Are you stressed and exhausted?
Would you like to be more grounded, happy, and peaceful?
Have you tried Yoga, but it feels . . . not quite right?

While traditional Sun Salutation Yoga embraces solar or mythically masculine qualities, the Moon Salutation fills the need for our lunar, feminine qualities.

“Laura is among the best graduate students I have ever worked with, certainly within the top 1%. She is superlative in all areas of scholarship and an excellent teacher and mentor. An articulate, creative, and sensitive woman, she is guided by values that lead directly to human flourishing in many areas.”
~ Connie Jones, PhD,
Professor of Integral Studies,
California Institute of Integral Studies, from a 2006 Letter of Reference.
“Laura stands among the top ten students I have encountered in my graduate teaching career of 25 years. She possesses a superb intellect, scholarly creativity, and commitment to a better world. Her research on women and yoga first and later ecology and yoga show ability to synthesize disparate materials at a very high level. I attended the wonderful conference she organized on Green Yoga and was witness to her enthusiasm for change in the world and her masterful organizational abilities. Her teaching reviews here at the Institute were very laudatory and affirmative of her abilities as a classroom teacher. I recommend her unconditionally.”
