Laurent Roure is a senior Hatha yoga, pranayama, breathwork and meditation teacher and trainer based in London. He is registered with Yoga Alliance Professionals UK.
Laurent’s meticulous yet relaxed approach to teaching yoga combines elements of the classical and contemporary. Through Hatha yoga, pranayama and breathwork, meditation and yoga Nidra, Laurent offers a therapeutic and supportive practice suitable for all levels and abilities.
He draws his pedagogic inspiration from his extensive experience with several yogic styles and teachers such as Hatha yoga, Ashtanga yoga and Vanda Scaravelli inspired yoga. This multi-faceted approach is orientated towards giving students all the necessary tools to develop their practice in a way that feels most helpful for them.
Without denying his classical foundation, Laurent embraces and specialises into a contemporary interpretation of traditional pranayama and meditation alongside other more recent breathwork and meditation methods. With these tools in hands, it is crucial for him to emphasise the cultivation of a caring, understanding, and helpful yoga culture centred on respect, safety, self-knowledge, and support to others.
Laurent’s experience and skills allow him to offer the tools of yoga in a therapeutic way and support students suffering from mental health including stress, anxiety, and insomnia. His work helps people enduring and experiencing breathlessness and pulmonary illnesses; He is currently working with people recovering from Covid-19 or suffering from Long Covid. He also works with cancer patients at any stage in their illness or recovery.
Laurent’s workshops, courses and training are run throughout the UK as well as internationally.
Every year he trains hundreds of students, yoga teachers, therapists, healthcare workers and others during his 55-hour Pranayama and Breathwork intensive course and his 60-hour Yoga Nidra intensive course.
Yoga Alliance Professionals accredits all his teacher training courses and intensives.
Besides his own classes, Laurent teaches pranayama, meditation and yoga Nidra CPD courses in collaboration with Flow Yoga in Tunbridge Wells, Yogacampus in London and FRYOG in South West England.
In his spare time, Laurent produces a podcast about health and well-being called “The Penny Drops Podcast“.
Many thanks and all my gratitude to my teachers and mentors, past, present and future. Thank you to all my students who trust me, believe in me and allow me to learn and grow beside them. Endless love to my husband José, to my family and my friends who support me through this journey.
