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


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...

How the dickens did I get here?

My Ashram Tent Home.jpg

I'm an ex- nightclub hostess, care-free party girl, currently writing from a yoga ashram in the Bahamas, where we wake up everyday to the sound of a 5.30am bell for silent meditation and chant in Sanskrit.

I wouldn't even be home by 5.30am in my old life. 

I sometimes look around my little tent and think to myself, "How the dickens did I get here?!

- Sivananda Ashram Bahamas, May 2015 - the beginning of the biggest journey of my life so far...
