The Experts

Your Wellness Team

Laurel is a yoga gypsy who loves exploring land and sea. She has always had the travel bug, but only fell in love with yoga 11 years ago. After completing her Master’s Degree in Business, while working full-time, she knew she needed a shift mentally and physically. At that point, she stepped into a yoga class and onto her mat; yoga changed her life forever. Within a year, she completed her 200 hour training and then within another she left her job to pursue a career in yoga. Shortly after, she completed an additional 300 hours of training, a Pilates Mat training, and a Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga Training. Her passion to always learn more led her to working with Sadie Nardini. She spent hours soaking up anatomy knowledge from Sadie as well as learning the business of yoga. She had the honor of traveling the world with Sadie as her lovely sidekick for more than two years. Her teaching style encourages you to move with attention to alignment and core stability while maintaining a fluid breath cycle. Laurel’s approach allows you to progress to the next level of your practice, while using your core to find balance, stability and openness. Each yoga class is a reflection of everyday life; challenges in class will require you to maintain the integrity of your core, your true being. Laurel’s heart is rooted in her hometown of Bethlehem, PA, with her husband, Josh, and chi-weenie/sidekick, Zeek. Her love for travel and adventure keeps her teaching yoga, paddle boarding, hiking, running, tasting healthy vegan food and sipping wine and cocktails all over the globe. She loves helping others seek the beauty within and the beauty throughout the world. Join her locally, globally or online.

Pam Anderson is a New York Times bestselling author of nine cookbooks, including the Julia Child Award-winning The Perfect Recipe and the James Beard-nominated first edition of How to Cook Without a Book and Perfect Recipes for Having People Over, and the IACP-nominated The Perfect Recipe For Losing Weight and Eating Great. Pam was also the former executive editor of Cook’s Illustrated magazine, USA Weekend food columnist, AARP’s official food expert, and a blogger with her two adult daughters at the popular site Three Many Cooks.

Kristen is an author, speaker, and practitioner who consults with people around the world and locally in Bethlehem, PA. She’s the author of the Cool Girl’s Guide to the FODMAP Diet: Everything you need to get savvy about (and beat!) digestive issues ⁠— for life. She brings a fresh perspective to common conditions and firmly believes that “conditions are conditional.” Rather than focusing on disease, she focuses on the conditions causing the disease and creates protocols that empower her patients to be intentional about making lifestyle changes that will make a difference. Dr. Bentson is a doctor of chiropractic and is on staff at Lehigh Valley Health Network. She has a masters of science degree in nutrition, certification in biofeedback, and is trained in functional medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine.

Bonus! Take home signed copies of Pam’s How to Cook without a Book and Dr. KB’s The Cool Girl’s Guide to the FODMAP Diet.
