Abingdon, OX14
Yoga Teacher & Thai Yoga Massage Therapist
<<Online classes until further notice (medium : Zoom)>>

£40/1 hour Yoga private session (online)

Hello, I'm Laurence. I'm Swiss and British, bilingual, French and English. I have been in the area for over 10 years teaching Yoga. I used to be a journalist, covering British News for Swiss media. I have three children and I started Yoga in 1997 while pregnant with the older one. I decided to quit journalism in 2009 and dedicate myself to my Yoga practice and teaching.

I am qualified in Vinyasa Yoga and Pregnancy Yoga as well as Thai Yoga Massage.

<<I am running private & online classes on Zoom until further notice. Morning classes : Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday. Evening class: Tuesday - please enquire>>

My teaching relies on each student's expectations and abilities, helping people to find where they have to stop and how they can move on.

You might be new to yoga, too busy to attend a scheduled class, recovering from an injury or need individual attention to progress in your practice.. No matter what your reasons for scheduling a personalized Yoga session, I will begin with an assessment of how you are feeling at that moment, both physically and mentally.

This interview is also an opportunity for you to express your goals and desires. Based on my assessment, I will determine which asanas, breathing practices and meditation techniques to lead you through.

I also teach Yoga classes in Abingdon & Clifton Hampden - so please enquire.

Thai Yoga Massage is often called Passive Yoga. It is a mixture of acupressure and stretches, focusing on ten among thousands of energy lines. Its main purpose is to rebalance the whole body and provide deep relaxation.

For optimum results, we need to allow two hours. TYM is practised on the floor with comfortable duvet padding and heated blanket. You wear soft clothes as you don’t need to undress

Yoga lessons are currently delivered via the platform Zoom.

Most of my students have now moved online until we can meet again.

In normal times, I can travel within Abingdon + 5 miles around, but I prefer to teach from my place in Abingdon. I use props which are easy to use on site, with the right amount of space.

My availability is flexible.

Prices are:

- Private Yoga session is £40/1 hr (online)

- Thai Yoga Massage is £80/2 hours (min. 2 hrs) with 20% off for your first treatment <<not available until further notice due to Covid 19>>

Testimonials

"When I started taking Laurence’s class I had no idea the impact yoga would have on me. I was suffering from tennis elbow and a pain in my hip and physiotherapy hadn’t helped. Within a month or so of doing yoga the pain had all but disappeared and now, over a year on, there is no sign of it at all. I find the class hard work but also get a sense of peace and a clearer head. Laurence’s teaching style is lovely and she encourages without being too pushy. I’ve taken to annoying my friends by preaching about the benefits of yoga. I feel healthier in body and in spirit and I wouldn’t give it up now for anything. Thanks Laurence."

"Having practised yoga for many years, and attended classes all over the world, I can honestly say that Laurence is the best yoga teacher I've had! It's clear that she has a very deep understanding of the body, and is able to communicate this in such an easy to understand way and help you make small adjustments so that you can really feel the benefits from the different poses. I would also highly recommend her Thai Yoga Massage to anyone who's a bit stiff and needs a gentle, passive introduction to Yoga. You couldn't be in safer, more relaxing hands!"
