Laura Donnelly is a teacher, mentor, choreographer, dancer, writer, business coach, and founder of Dancing with Ease. She teaches Body-Brain-Business Balance online and in person. The work is based on Laura's 35 plus years as a performer and teacher of the Alexander Technique, Movement Fundamentals™, Somatics, and Business Management.
Multi-talented, successful, sensitive people hire Donnelly to teach them to reduce stress, eliminate overwhelm, and discover their “right effort” to achieve dynamic balance in all activities so they can surf the waves of change successfully. Applying this work to business creation and development allows business owners to create enterprises that fit them while utilizing their unique skills. Donnelly uses her Body-Brain Balance method to ensure that the business that evolves fits the owner/founder like a fine leather glove. Based on a foundation of personal wellbeing and emphasizing organic growth insures that the business supports awareness and personal growth while bringing financial success and joy.
