About your teacher

I'm Laura 

I am SO ready to help you gain in confidence and skills to share yoga. I believe having an intro course that really nurtures your students is the way to both spread the benefits of yoga and support you as a teacher. I have taught yoga for over 25 years and there is nothing more rewarding than teaching complete beginners about this incredible tradition. 

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.


"I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying the Intro to Yoga module. I’m finding it compliments The Accessible Yoga 200hr TT I recently completed. I love how you show different options, show the various use of props including the chair and wall as a prop too, making the teaching more accessible. As I covered bed, chair, wheelchair and mat yoga on my 200hr TT we didn’t have enough hours to cover a 6wk Beginners Course, so I am personally so grateful that you have put together this wonderful course. It's just what I needed, so thank you."
