Laurent Roure’s meticulous and mindful 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 practice suitable for all levels and abilities.
Laurent is registered with the Yoga Alliance Professional UK as a senior registered yoga teacher and trainer.
He draws his pedagogic inspiration from his extensive study and practice of several yogic styles including Ashtanga, Hatha and the work of Vanda Scaravelli. 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. Laurent encourages his students to be attuned to their bodies’ needs but also their strengths in order to foster a safe and welcoming atmosphere. For Laurent, cultivation of a yoga culture which is caring, and understanding is of utmost importance.
In order to optimise the utility of his teachings for people’s everyday lives, Laurent embraces a contemporary interpretation of the Swami Gitananda system alongside other more recent breathwork methods. Without denying his classical foundation, he offers a grounded, practical and therapeutic approach to yoga, breathwork, meditation and relaxation with creative and straightforward tools attuned to suit all of his students and trainees’ needs.
Laurent has trained and has the skills to offer yoga in a therapeutic way to students suffering from stress, anxiety, insomnia. He is also teaching yoga to cancer patients at any stage of their recovery.
