Laura Berland, Founder of Talking Yoga, is a Yoga Therapist and Coach who works with yoga teachers, practitioners, and heart-centered entrepreneurs to accelerate health, healing, growth, and transformation.

By 2003, she was sharing the teachings of this remarkable methodology, traded concrete for green living, and heeded a deep calling to serve. She continues to be a devoted student, teacher and teacher of teachers.
Laura helps clients find their own path to purpose and service. She is the co-author of the Talking Yoga’s Compassionate Coaching Framework which integrates evidence-based coaching practices with yogic wisdom and philosophy. In addition, she has interviewed over 50 master teachers to preserve and share their experiences and insight in service to the community.
Outside the Yoga Room, Laura is also the CMO of StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson, a science media network of chart-topping podcasts and the Emmy nominated TV show on NatGeo. Laura has been mentoring women in digital technology for over 35 years, and served in leadership roles at CompuServe, MCI, NewsCorp, Showtime, and IDC.
