Laura has a demanding career as an Art, Graphics and Photography teacher at Doncaster New College and understands first hand the importance of balance in our busy lives.
She has studied yoga for 12 years, specialising in Viniyoga for the last 6 years and has taught in schools, colleges and the community.
Laura brings warmth, grace and compassion to her teaching, ensuring pupils understand the relationship between body, breath and mindfulness. She gains huge satisfaction showing individuals how this beautiful form of relaxation can quite literally change lives.
“Yoga is a form of expression, a way to know yourself and a way to heal yourself. Yoga means 'to yolk'. The bringing together of the body, the breath and the mind.
In yoga, we take a journey from movement into stillness. Developing the ability to observe, concentrate and attain a clarity of view.
Yoga practice brings an opportunity for a time of stillness in each busy day. Over time this practise brings self-awareness and compassion towards ourselves and others. An established yoga practice brings a clarity of vision, good health and contentment.
Influential teachers within my own 11 year journey are Anne Marie Newland, Zoe Martin and Paul Harvey. The teachings of Sri Krishnamacharya and his son TKV Desikachar inform my self enquiry and further study.”
