Grace Smith, CHt 

Prior to her career as Master Certified Hypnotherapist and Life Coach, Grace was a corporate sales exec. After experiencing the profoundly effective results of hypnosis for herself, she decided to pursue a few hypnosis workshops and trainings in order to deepen her own healing. What she didn’t expect was to eventually open her own business as a HypnoCoach, or that within the first 24-hours of opening her business she would already have 924 clients on the books. A few years later, Grace is now one of the most experienced and successful hypnotists on the planet with thousands of sessions under her belt. Grace’s passion is redefining hypnosis; by undoing century-old misunderstandings about the practice she is helping people from all over the world to once again claim hypnosis as a powerful tool for rapid transformation and healing.

Partner Testimonials:

I have had the pleasure of working with Laurel in several ways – as my yoga teacher, retreat leader, and now partner for several upcoming events and retreats. She is unbelievably knowledgeable, passionate and professional. Her yoga classes are my absolute favorite, and working with her is a dream. She’s the perfect combination of ultimate yogi and relatable.

Rachel DeAlto, Relationship Expert and Love Coach

I’ve love working with Laurel, her enthusiasm, positive spirit and energy is infectious. She is a driven business women and an extremely talented yoga and SUP board instructor. Her passion shines through because she walks her walk, embodying what she stands for, and bringing that same beautiful spirit to her retreats. Whether she is planning them, running them or teaching – she is a true talent and gift to her community.

I love working with Laurel because her enthusiasm is contagious. She is always coming up with fresh, fun and inspiring ideas to make our yoga students happier, healthier and more joyful. She has also become our in house co-collaborator and has introduced our community to a number of wonderful women including most recently a nutritionist and hypnotherapist.

Alysha Pfeiffer, Manager of the Yoga Loft of Bethlehem

People say not to work with your friends. Having the opportunity to work with my former bridesmaids was such a pleasure! Laurel’s teaching style complimented mine, so that no matter how the retreat participants were feeling, they had a class that was perfect for them to attend. Our collaboration skills have improved by working together, and I am very much looking forward to next year’s adventure to Tulum.
