A bit about me

Hi there, I´m Sakshi (or Laura if you prefer). Welcome to my website! Let me tell you briefly a bit about me...

After I took my first yoga class almost two decades ago, tired and stiff from the corporate 9 to 5, I was hooked on the way I felt -more grounded, happier, stronger, and healthier.

A journalism major in college and former oriental art PR & publicist, my inquisitive nature gave way to a strong desire for an alternative lifestyle and self-inquiry which turned into a lifelong passion. Yoga for me has always been a means for more fully inhabiting my body, mind, and spirit but not in an airy or flakey way. Keeping both feet on the ground, I practice to remain awake, aware, and aligned and I teach to share the joy of both movement (yang) and stillness (yin) with others. That's my why: to share that joy of embodiment!

After completing the advanced 300-hour yoga teacher training, I am fully registered and certified by Yoga Alliance as an RYT 500HR+ Yoga Teacher. 

I am certified in different disciplines like Hatha, Vinyasa, Meridian Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Acupressure, Mindfulness, Traditional Chinese Massage, and Chair/Senior Yoga.

Over time my practice has evolved finding my own style providing a soft and nurturing environment and after spending 2 years as a resident yoga teacher and Booking Manager at Suryalila, one of the best yoga retreat centers in Europe, I feel more than ever the calling to share this magic toolbox with you during my retreats and my visits to different countries/cities or even online!

 With over 15 years of combined experience as a Corporate Senior Executive Assistant, Event Planner, Retreat Advisor, and Booking Manager;  as Retreat Planner, I want you to focus on the fun parts of hosting a retreat and hand over the logistics and administration to an experienced professional. On the other hand, as a Teacher and Yoga Retreat Host, I strive to empower you to dig deeper, discover a healthier, more vibrant version of yourself,  tap into your inner wisdom, and reconnect with your true self to create a joyful and balanced life.

Ready? It all starts with an inhale...
