Laia loves teaching Vinyasa flow classes that are fun, playful, and creative, often with a sprinkle of dharma and spirituality that create an empowering and supportive experience.
As a touring professional figure skater, taking care of her body was essential to peak performance. This is how Laia was introduced to yoga at a purely physical level. It wasn’t until she developed a chronic condition that yoga and meditation took a deeper meaning in her life. Through yoga Laia found a pathway to manage stress, maintain body awareness and promote empowerment through a difficult time.
Following her performance career, now as a skating coach, Laia began to dive deeper into studying yoga philosophy, anatomy, and the energetic body, training under Nichi Green, Irina Verwer and Claire Santos. This knowledge allowed Laia to develop specialised yoga programs for figure skaters and other elite athletes including Olympic and Paralympic medalists from several countries.
Laia also holds a certification in trauma and resilience yoga, and is a Reiki II practitioner. She continues to seek opportunities for growth and development and enjoys integrating Ayurvedic principles, aromatherapy as well as putting a high emphasis on meditation and self-awareness into her classes.
Laia’s intention as a yoga teacher is to encourage students to meet themselves as they are; with both their strengths and weaknesses, their shadows and their light. She invites them to practice with a sense of curiosity and joy, always utilizing the breath as a focal point.
Laia believes that yoga is a constant reminder of the gift that life truly is, which ignites a spark in the body, mind, and soul, providing a path to the self.
