  • 2: BODY - Energy

    Starting with the most practical subject, we cover the fundamentals of where our energy really comes from, to ensure we all start on the same page. We'll be dispelling some unhelpful myths, and replacing behaviours which do not serve us chemically, with those which will offer us long lasting ener...

  • 3. BODY - Stress

    Once we have clarity of where energy really comes from, we can look at the effects of stress on the body physically - what chemicals are released, why, the effects of this, and what to do to reverse the effect of stress on the body and bring your body back into balance. And finally how to reframe...

  • 4. BODY - Exercise

    Exercise may seem like an obvious means to health, but Laura dives more into the reasoning of why we're really exercising? What is your intention for exercising? Is it truly for your health, or for appearance? Does the form of exercise you do increase stress hormones? Does it bring you into physi...

  • 5. MIND - Meditation

    The body is a bi-product of the mind, so once we have understood the former fundamentals of physical health, we can go deeper. By observing our thoughts rather than being controlled around by them, we can start to see which ones are working for us, and which ones do not. With practice, we are the...

  • 6. MIND - Fear

    Going deeper every topic, we explore the root cause of stress fear, taking the time to get clear on - what we are really scared of? And through this insight, we are able to heal at such a deep level that our energetic frequency can actually change, taking us out of a state of anxiety and moving i...

  • 7. MIND - Self-Actualisation

    The ultimate transformation - next we learn how to move from our subconscious, approval seeking behaviours and conditioning, to freedom from judgement and fear of not being loved, transforming towards absolute authenticity and fulfilment!

  • 8. RELATIONSHIPS - Feeling

    With comprehensive understanding of the human needs and instinctual processes, thus a deep understanding of self, we are then able to move onto our relationships with others. First, we reveal the importance of moving out of thinking and into feeling, reconnecting back inwards. Looking at emotiona...

  • 9. RELATIONSHIPS - Conflict

    Honing our listening skills, and with a clear understanding of the human needs, we are now able to see through the ‘acting out’ of others and instead see they’re asking for help. We will explore how to meet their needs, transforming potential conflict into profound connection.

  • 10. RELATIONSHIPS - Transference

    To conclude the relationship series, Laura explains the process of transference, making it easier to distinguish what is our ‘stuff’ and what is others’. This enables boundaries to be set, and gives us the opportunity to grow personally and interpersonally.

  • 11. SCIENCE OF YOGA - Ayurveda

    Having built your knowledge from the ground up with such a strong understanding of physical, mental and relational health, you will now be more open and ready to learn about putting yogic principles into practice, so that you are truly living yoga, rather than just practicing asana (poses) on you...

  • 12. SCIENCE OF YOGA - Chakras

    Moving into Chakras, another topic which could be explored in amazing detail. Laura introduces the concept in a top-line, practical approach, as a ‘road map’ to understand how our emotions are expressed throughout the body. Through learning the language of our body, we are able to listen to whisp...

  • 13. SCIENCE OF YOGA - Frequency & Nidra

    Next we look at frequency and yoga nidra, exploring how ‘e-motion’ simply put is energy in motion, and that everything has a frequency. We learn how to adjust our frequency to find a healing state, and the various mediums available to access this, including sound, meditation, movement and sleep.
    ...

  • 14. YOGA PRACTICE - What is Yoga Really?

    Last but by no means least, Laura shares the whole meaning behind ‘yoga’, looking at the practice as a journey to personal growth or ‘enlightenment’. Today, when we hear or say, ‘I practice yoga’ what most people mean is they practice yoga poses, also known as Asana (pose, or actually seat for me...

  • 15. YOGA PRACTICE - Yamas

    Yamas - here we explore the restraints, in other words, what we would do well to avoid. These can all be applied personally, physically, mentally, and within relationships. Topics which are worthy of hours of debate in and of themselves, Laura offers a simple overview which we can then apply to a...

  • 16. YOGA PRACTICE - Niyamas

    Niyamas, known as the observances, or what we would do well to move towards. Another framework, almost code of conduct, helping to keep each of us on our own path. Bearing in mind both the Yamas & Niyamas, and the other limbs, are not practiced in isolation but it is the friction between seve...

  • 17. YOGA PRACTICE - Asana

    Ever practical, Laura then looks at where asana, yoga poses really came from, and how we should tailor our practice to meet our needs. Firstly, we just want to fall in love with yoga, so that we practice every day, even a couple times a day; NOT because we have to, but because we WANT to. And the...

  • 18. YOGA PRACTICE - Pranayama

    Just as there are many styles of yoga poses, there are also many styles of breath - pranayama. Breath is our prana, our energy, our life force... without breath we don’t have life. Our culture has a tendency to eye roll at prioritising breath, perhaps feeling it’s a ‘waste of time’ to practice br...

  • 19. YOGA PRACTICE - 5-8 Limbs

    Meditation covers the final 3 limbs of the 8 limbs of yoga. Laura dispels the myths around meditation, dissolving the common idea that meditation is ‘not for me’, perhaps for another religion or for people whose families meditate. Instead, Laura explains how meditation is effectively exercise for...

  • 20. YOGA PRACTICE - Kleshas

    As a little bonus, Laura adds in something beyond the eight limbs, another framework we can use to help us find balance. Kleshas are ‘poisons’ which can slow down or stop us on our ‘path’. By understanding common poisons of the mind, we are able to identify how to avoid them. For example, one Kle...

  • 21. Summary of the Course & What Next

    Each of these topics could be deep dived into in more detail, the journey never ends, but Laura has summarised what could be complex subjects into simple, useful, practical topics which we can used to understand our own physical, mental and relational health as a whole, with the hope to offer us ...
