Laurel Webster RYT 200, completed her yoga training with Create Karma Non-Profit Organization in Lancaster, PA in 2018. By day, she is a founding partner of Hersick+Webster Creative Partners, a marketing design studio that helps purpose-driven organizations create meaningful solutions for people and places. Laurel and her partner are nationally recognized by GDUSA as Responsible Designers to Watch, and have won awards from Print, GDUSA, Art Directors Club, and many more. She is a co-author of Path to Impact, a strategic methodology that combines design strategy, sustainable design, systems thinking, and the theory of change to help others envision, plan, design, measure, and share their impact.

Laurel’s classes, taught in Vinyasa, Hatha, and Yin, have been described as energy-giving, and provided a little swear and mindfulness practices for on and off the mat. Throughout her classes, Laurel ensures her classes work for all levels, providing ways to make poses work for the unique individual, alongside offering space for creative expression all while building energy and getting a good sweat on.

By all other hours, Laurel is an avid long-distance runner and semi-obsessive knitter. Most recently, she completed her first 50k ultramarathon. The important role that yoga plays throughout her training is clear, helping ease tight muscles, maintain flexibility, and build strength.

With whatever spare time she creates, Laurel can be found cuddling with her Great Danes, or out tasting new wines with her husband James.
