Ready to teach these powerful techniques?

Bandhas and breathwork together are the most powerful techniques of the yogis, taught with a contemporary understanding of relationship to the vagus nerve. Teaching these techniques in an inclusive way can  transform your life experience and that of your students.

I share my years of experience and research with this in-depth exploration of breath work, pranayama & bandhas techniques. 

Discover the relationship between the bandhas, the breath and the vagus nerve. This course shares powerful practices to support healing of both body and mind through breath and bodywork. We trace evidence based practices, back to their roots within the yoga tradition, from the Upanishads through Tantra to Hatha Yoga.

Gain a thorough understanding of the “Subtle body”, integrating the “models” of the prana vayus, koshas, bandhas and chakras. Understand how all of these techniques influence and transform our nervous system & therefore our experience of life.

What the course covers:

Understanding yoga philosophy

Understand the development of the subtle body in yoga history and philosophy and how to integrate key themes from yoga philosophy into your class.

Understanding bandhas

About your teacher

I'm Laura

Bandhas and breathwork together are the most powerful techniques of the yogis and here I share my years of experience and research with this in-depth exploration of breath work, pranayama & bandhas techniques, taught with a contemporary understanding of relationship to the vagus nerve.

Yoga has been my life path- I started practice when I was at uni and was struggling with my mental health. I didn't make it through that first degree, but I did bring a love of yoga with me when I left. For me it has been a path from fear, shame & isolation, to a sense of self-worth. Today I live with my teenage son & our three dogs and work at my own studio in Bristol with my incredible team. It's been a long process of figuring out what works and now the yoga I share combines movement with stillness, science with philosophy. Because this is the practice that has transformed my life and that I see inspiring my students. I'd love to share this with you too

What our students say:

"“The intensive was absolutely fantastic - maybe my favourite so far. Laura is so knowledgeable and able to communicate her knowledge in a really clear way."

 
Sue, on Vagus Nerve, Breath & Bandhas Live Yoga Intensive

"“Thank you so much for a really inspiring course, full of relevant, accessible and key knowledge that I can feed back into my personal practice and teaching with complete confidence of understanding."
