Laura Bell

Laura landed into yoga quite literally after being thrown out of a boat in Australia 11 years ago and landing with a broken back. After 3 months of rehabilitation, she was able to walk again but was told her passion of running was no longer an option and that yoga would be the best form of exercise to aid her recovery. As she started to practise yoga as a way to keep her back strong and pain free, her love of yoga was born. After training with David Swenson in Ashtanga yoga a new yogic way of life flourished.

From teaching weekly classes and workshops she soon realised that she wanted to give her students more. It was then that her retreats were born. She found a stunning location, taught the yoga, led the group on coastal walks and with the help of her mum cooked the meals. It was very much a family affair, with her sister helping out and carrying out the massages. But demand for the retreats grew and now have a team of like minded, caring women running the retreats throughout the year. Laura is still very much involved in the running of the retreats and will often be there to help set up, sometimes with a baby or toddler in tow!

What our travellers are saying...

Amazing weekend! Magnificent yoga with the Wonderful Claire in the most beautiful of settings. Everyone so friendly and welcoming, food was also outstanding. The hidden Gardens are just a big bonus and the SUP was an experience I can’t wait to do again. The whole package was brilliant and one I’m sure my daughter and I will be repeating soon!

Joanne P

What an amazing weekend. Pure Yoga retreat was full of warmth, fun, learning, amazing food and wonderful people. The depth of knowledge delivered by Claire and Kate in all aspects of the yoga tradition was perfect and delivered in such a way as to be very accessible. Outstanding food by Michelle and all contained within the most serene location. Will be booking again...

For Claire yoga has been a lifelong passion. She has been practising for more than 40 years and has studied with many inspiring teachers in many different styles. She qualified to teach at Camyoga in Cambridge in 2015. Her regular style of yoga is Hatha Flow.

Each of her classes are carefully sequenced to safely align, stretch and strengthen the entire body on a physical level and to release tensions, emotional blockages and encourage the flow of energy on a subtle level. Expect a fairly intense experience but you are never pushed beyond your own limits. She gives modifications and progressions as required to suit your individual needs.
