Laura believes that everything happens for a reason, Laura discovered Yoga whilst recovering from a very serious back injury, and was unable to continue working as a personal trainer. Looking back it has been a journey, and often when things are thrown at us, that is when we find the true path that we were meant to be on.
Since 2011 Laura has been teaching Yoga to groups within the community, in and around Stamford and Bourne. The style of Yoga that Laura teaches is a slow, thorough, mindful, nurturing, following Patanjali's philosophy of the 8 limbs of Yoga, so each class includes Yama's (Ethical Considerations), Niyama's (Self Observation/Discipline), Pranayama (Breath control/Control of Life Force), Asana (Postures), Dharana (Concentration), Pratyahara (Sense Withdrawal/Turning inward), Dhyana (Meditative Absorbtion), Samadhi (Enlightenment/Peace). Laura enjoys weaving colour into her Yoga sessions, working with the Chakras and plenty of guided visualisations. Laura is studying Yin Yoga at the moment and will be qualified to teach this style from July 2019.
Laura has a passion for travelling and feels alive when she is by the ocean, Laura also likes to work with the elements in her classes, Yoga Days and Retreats. Laura feels that art and spending time along is also important, feeling at one with yourself and giving yourself space to think, to be creative, and to 'just be'.
Laura is also a fully qualified Gong Practitioner. Gongs found Laura at a Yoga festival a few years ago and since then Gongs and Sound healing are a big part of Laura's life. You can read more about the Gongs on the 'Gongs' page! You can come to Laura's home in Bourne for a small group of up to 4 people, giving you a really special experience. If you are interested in knowing when the sessions run please register your interest with Laura.
Laura believes that Yoga is for everybody, of any age, with any body, Yoga is so much more than downward dog, Tree pose and trying to do a handstand! In Laura's Yoga you will get a nice mixture of all of the 8 limbs of Yoga above, with a nurturing attitude, friendly, welcoming,non-judgemental, encouraging, and a reminder that Yoga is a 'practice', not perfection. Laura believes that keeping things simple, doing what you can, listen to your body, stay with your breath, be gentle on yourself, and do what you can on the day, all of that leads to that feeling of Oneness, the feeling we would all like more of, and with todays busy society, we all NEED... If you have never tried Yoga, please do, come to a class where you will be safe, guided and able to benefit from it physically, mentally, and emotionally
