Hayley Lawrence has been practising yoga since 1997, and teaching since 2005. Since early in 2000 Hayley studied Hatha yoga over a two-year period with Saraswati based in London, UK. Saraswati studied Zen Buddhism and Mindfulness with Alan Watts and was lucky to be one of the last Sivananda teachers to be initiated by Swami Vishnu Devananda. Saraswati also studied with Swami Sivapremananda, William Bloom, Louise Hay, Professor Mark W. Muesse and many more. Hayley became a certified yoga teacher in 2005. Over the years she has invested intensive periods of time in India, studying with many Yoga Masters, and attending many Vipassana meditation courses.  

Hayley focuses on finding our natural ease within the postures, and on developing an ever-increased awareness of the relationship between the body, the breath, and our state of mind. She teaches precise awareness of alignment in the postures, through graceful, flowing sequences in synchrony with the breath. Her style is both meditative and enlivening, balancing the ‘doing’ and the ‘being’ sides of our nature. As we focus within, developing the capacity to observe ourselves, the sessions themselves become a form of deep healing yoga therapy, which flows out into our lives beyond the classroom.

Don't seek, don't search, don't ask, don't knock, don't demand - relax. If you relax, it comes. If you relax, it is there. If you relax, you start vibrating with it. Osho
