"Laura is inspiring and I came away confident to move forward in my goal of becoming a children’s yoga teacher. Go for it - you won’t look back"
- Ellen, Primary School Teacher
"I was blown away. The workshops were well-planned with lots of activities that got the trainees involved so it was never dull, and we had such a fun time with Laura's repertoire of creative tools and techniques to engage children. My inner child was totally stoked!!!
She understands child development so well and shares all these deep knowledge through easy-to-understand ways. I loved how she was able to hold the space for such a large group of us, and managed to create this safe space for us to learn, share and teach".
- Applie, Social Worker
"Laura is a fantastic, caring and knowledgeable teacher. I learned so much over the 10 day course, all of which I now feel confident to instantly use to teach my own children's yoga and meditation classes.
Laura instantly made me feel at ease and part of the group"
