Laura teaches with an intuitive understanding of the needs of all her students, and combines asana, pranyama and meditation practices that enable you to see with more clarity, and become more at ease and confident in yourself. She shares a deep knowledge of asana interwoven with the deeper wisdom of yoga, and teaches with warmth and humour.
Known for her attention to detail and ability to “read the body” Laura is adept at helping students to heal from aches and pains, or free up areas of restricted movement. Whether you are a beginner in your yoga journey or looking to advance your practice, Laura loves to share the practices of yoga and meditation with everyone.
Classes include opportunities to release and relax deeply, as well as to challenge oneself on a physical level – finding greater ease and understanding within body and mind.
The asana work is both precise and at times more flowing, enabling students to get in touch with the “prana” or life force. Laura also includes pranayama (breath work), meditation and mindfulness. She experiences yoga as a means of deep personal transformation- coming to a place of greater acceptance within oneself. It is this heart of yoga she hopes to share with you.
Laura has had many teachers from different traditions, and with great respect brings aspects of different traditions together. Most recently she has studied intensively with Anodea Judith and Tias Little, for many years she has studied with senior Iyengar teachers and Ashtanga teachers. She has also practiced Zen meditation with Thich Nhat Hanh (Zen), Vipassana meditation and tantra with Mukunda and Chinnmasta Stiles.
