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, worked on a boat in the Caribbean, got my heart broken by a gorgeous 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'. 

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, cheffy 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...
