“As someone who’s been suffering with chronic migraine for the past 2 years, I found the workshop very helpful, relieving the tension built up in my neck and shoulders. Covid times also meant more hours sitting for me, so the somatic movement sessions have been both invigorating and relaxing. Thank you, Laura!”
– Laura, Recruitment Manager
"Healing Yoga has been a blessing for me during the pandemic, it has really improved my long term back pain and has also decreased my levels of stress. Laura is a very warm and patient teacher. She encourages you to work with your body instead of against it. Her one-on-one sessions provide a personal introduction to the practice and include tailored exercises to suit your individual experiences. Laura can also provide Zoom recordings of your classes on request for you to practice in your own time. Would highly recommend, thank you for all your work this year."
“Thanks so much for the online classes, I’m finding them so beneficial with all the stress and tension at the moment. I feel energised and more connected deeply within myself, both physically and emotionally. It encourages me to open up rather than shut down and survive. It helps manage my symptoms of MS too.”
– Anna, Nursing
“Time-out with my body was a revolutionary experience! I really enjoyed the energy of the workshops-both relaxing and energising! Huge thanks!”

“I’ve really enjoyed having time in my diary that I look forward to where I can unplug and relax.”

“I met Laura at a networking event where she shared her story of resilience and courage. A few weeks after she faciIltated an energising session for the Collective Edge community of coaches from her Luminous Leadership programme. Wow wow wow. It released the stresses that had built up over the week and left me feeling relaxed and peaceful. So much so that 60 minutes later I fell asleep for 5 hours! Laura will support you in relieving stress and energising your body, mind and spirit which is so critical to being a selfless leader who guides people and organisations through systemic change."

“Laura has the most amazing calming and grounded energy, she seems to see past the physical and straight to the core of a person making them feel at ease. She is encouraging and full of knowledge. She creates a safe space to practice in, her classes and her 1:1 sessions are fantastic.”
– Rowena, Event Management
"Laura's classes are wonderful. She is very knowledgeable, intuitive and gentle which makes for a very comforting and healing experience. We're on our screens so much these days and so what I love about the somatic movement class is that Laura's descriptions are so good you don't even have to look at the screen to follow the class. As a person who also has a visual impairment, this means I can really enter into a healing movement process guided by her lovely descriptions. It's a deeply healing and reconnecting class! Thank you Laura!"
– Emilie, Art Therapist
“Laura is a highly skilled and much learned teacher and practitioner who invests great amounts of energy and warmth into her classes. I know of no one who is so determined to spread the benefits of somatic yoga, and so passionate about what she does, which is equalled only by her supportive nature and wisdom. The lessons I have learned about my body and healing from her are incredible, and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a balance of healing and enjoyment. Don't miss out!!"
