Hi, I'm Laura

Yoga teacher, writer, sailor, plant-powered, cancer-surviving, global mischief-maker 💫 

In the last 6 years (since breast cancer changed my life), I've trekked though the Peruvian Andes, lived in a tent for 4 months in an ashram, trained as a yoga teacher in the Bahamas and Spain (400hr RYT), worked on a boat in the Caribbean, got my heart broken by a girl from California, sailed across the Atlantic, volunteered at a refugee camp on Mount Olympus, raised over £30k for charity. Amongst all that, I've also fallen apart and put myself back together more times than Donald Trump's tweeted about 'fake news'. I want my healing to inspire yours.

Big Dreams

healthy body, peaceful mind, happy heart, published author,  sail around the world by 40

Love

the smell of new books, my 4 rescue pups, laughing my odd socks off, yoga magic, chef-y friends, epic playlists

Don't Love

the smell of cooking mushrooms, mindless TV, duck-pout selfies, over-thinking, matching socks

Most of us need healing, it doesn't have to be boring...

Fear of flipper

Fear of flipper

"Excuuuuse me!!!!"

Moving to the British Virgin Islands to work on a yacht, which involved me having to take guests snorkelling on an almost daily basis, when I had an extreme, long-standing fear of fish, was probably one of my more risky career moves... 

 Me looking remarkably like I know what I'm doing. 

Me looking remarkably like I know what I'm doing. 

This is from a Facebook post I wrote before my first ever charter:

Trying to get over my irrational fear of fish before the first guests arrive. Went snorkelling again yesterday at a beautiful place called The Indians, which, incidentally, looks like the four rocks from The Goonies treasure map. Was doing ok until I came face to face with a school of brightly-coloured fish, at which point, I start repeatedly yelling (through my snorkel mask), "Excuse me! EXCUUUUSE ME!", followed by an uncontrollable fit of panic-laughing, resulting in me having to be rescued by El Capitan... who then got stung by a jellyfish because he couldn't see where he was going for my wriggling and trying to climb onto his head.

3 days to learn how to play it cool.
