Welcome to Yogalaurent

Yoga is just not about movement it is about the connection of all that we are, to obtain moments of sheer clarity and vision, the moment when we become one...

I aim to provide my students with the tools to be able to look at and listen to their bodies’ needs and to subsequently become more in touch with themselves, their breathing and their minds.

I particularly liked the way he came at well known postures from a different angle...

It is clear from the way Laurent teaches that he has done lots of work on his own practice and explored the way his body moves from within, and he’s keen to help you find your own way too. Like many Scaravelli teachers, he is more interested in finding how the body feels on the inside and moving from a very deep place, than he is in finding the perfect shape to the posture.
Unlike some Scaravelli teachers, though, Laurent is not averse to a bit of flow, and a bit of dynamism, as a contrast. I particularly liked the way he came at well known postures from a different angle, which meant I was able to experience them in a different way, rather than just going through the motions – as can sometimes happen with classics like Adho Mukha Savasana (downward-facing dog) or Marjarayasana (cat pose).
I also liked how he integrates pranayama into the postures, rather than simply separating it out at the end. I found Laurent’s class to be playful and exploratory, caring but fun, intense and deep but without being serious or severe. It’s a really nice combination, and at the end of our class I felt relaxed but well exercised

A big thank you

Thank you for many hours of the yoga at the Grange. You are a fantastic teacher with inimitable style.

The classes were fun and informative

I regularly practise fast paced Vinyasa at home so found Hatha yoga to be the perfect change for a relaxed retreat, with Laurent paying special attention to every participant (and their respective injuries) and making us all feel very comfortable. The classes were fun and informative and despite being a regular practioner I learnt a lot about refining my poses.

We can’t thank you enough for all of your inspiration...

We can’t thank you enough for all of your inspiration, insight and being such a great teacher. I wouldn’t normally get out of bed so early if it wasn’t for you.

An excellent work in all our classes this year

I really appreciate your teaching style, always paying attention to the detail of the process and never end-gaining. I feel very fortunate to have met you so early in my yoga journey.

Laurent puts you at ease in every class

Often peppered with laughter, each class will see Laurent completely understanding your level, limitations and potential.

Kudos for these fantastic yoga holidays

I had such a great time in Klavze. The place is fantastic and the views were simply stunning (perfect for my daily meditation). Laurent was a helpful teacher and looked after all the students. I felt really supported on my yoga practice. Worthy to mention the house and our host Ben. Food was simply amazing and we all had a great time not only being together at that magical location but also enjoying the rafting. I would definitely recommend it and I am planning now to go next year.
