In a saucepan, combine gelatin with water; let stand 5 minutes. Heat over medium-low heat until gelatin dissolves; stir in sugar until fully dissolved. Let cool.

Cut 1 cup (250 mL) of strawberries into pieces. Reserve.

In a bowl, mash the rest of the strawberries; stir in gelatin and mix well. Refrigerate until firm, approximately 1 hour.

In a large bowl, mix the yogurt with ¼ cup (60 mL) of the strawberry mixture.

In 4 tall glasses, layer the yogurt, the remaining strawberry mixture and pieces of strawberries. Repeat layers. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 1 hour, or up to 1 day.
