Laurence had spent 20 years working in the entertainment industry as an actor, dancer, singer, and writer, while also obtaining a B.A. in Communications. After 16 years of practicing yoga and teaching it to performers as a warm up ritual, Laurence decided to deepen his own understanding of yoga. Under the guidance of Michael de Manincor, the founder of the Yoga Institute, Laurence had learnt Hatha Yoga, in the tradition of the internationally recognised Krishnamacharya Healing and Yoga Foundation. Since retired from performing, Laurence worked at Life and Balanced as Ops Manager, while furthering his studies at the Yoga Institute. During this time he also taught Yoga generally and privately and was also the resident yoga teacher at the actors collage. Laurence’s training also includes Pranayama and Yoga Meditation.
