I have tried many different treatments and classes, but none have made me feel so welcome and valued. Laura understands each client so well, the improvements I’ve made in my lifestyle since I started yoga/reiki with Laura has been amazing. She is good for your soul.

I believe in life that everything happens for a reason and coming upon Laura in a random internet search for help with back pain was true testament of this hypotheses…from my first phone-call with Laura and her intuitive ear, she had a plan to help that would go beyond the manifesting back trouble that I was having … Over the last few months I’ve practised with Laura in her beautifully spirited gentle yoga classes.  Her classes along with her Reki practise give truly self nurturing techniques and rituals that everyone should have the benefit of both knowing and practising.

I am in awe of your healing concepts!

So happy to have found your class and am so excited to learn so much from you each week about somatic movement and healing exercises woven into yogic practices for my personal healing path.

I have already gained so much from the classes to help me on my personal journey, thank you!

Laura is a unique teacher and therapist. She is whole-heartedly devoted to what she does and to all the individuals she is teaching or treating. Her yoga classes helped me to better understand my body, to realize what was going on inside me and notice things that needed more attention. Her classes helped me to relax and lift my energy levels. I also received reiki from Laura; it was such a powerful experience and I would recommend it to anyone. I am thankful that I got introduced to the world of yoga, reiki and meditation by this special person.
