Laurie first discovered yoga 20 years ago initially starting to practise at home to videos for purely physical reasons. As the years went on Laurie felt the mental, physical and spiritual benefits of yoga and the yogic lifestyle has become a massive part of her life. Throughout various periods in her life, practising yoga has consistently been a grounding and supportive way of being that has enabled her to deal with situations with strength and clarity.
Over the years Laurie has travelled to various countries to practise yoga and most notably India. It was in India that yoga became firmly entrenched into her being and she knew that all of the amazing skills that she was learning, she wanted to share with others. Through the practice of yoga, Laurie believes that it is possible to heal oneself and that what you learn on the mat will help you in so many ways in your everyday life.
Laurie has completed a 500 hr Teacher Training course with the Devon School of Yoga and has since built upon her training attending teachings for teachers with world-renowned Master yoga teachers Elena Brower and Shiva Rea.
Laurie is also a qualified Holistic Well-Being and Lifestyle Coach having attained a 'Diploma in Cognitive Coaching and Mentoring' from the Institute of Counselling. To further her training Laurie has completed two mentorship programmes with Elena Brower of The Handel Group one specifically tailored to supporting people in Recovery.
In her practice, Laurie weaves the principles of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Person Centred Counselling, Mindfulness and Yogic Philosophy to create a holistic session which will support clients to bring about change into their lives.
