    "Zestfest 2016 has been incredible. A truly eye opening experience with a hugely diverse range of classes and activities - all the instructors have been inspiring. Music and food also great and the hosts could not have been more welcoming. Will definitely be back next year ready to try out some new weird and wonderful yoga."

    "I have been practicing Ashtanga Yoga with Laura for some 18 months. She is a fantastic teacher, helping me to stay disciplined and focused. Because of this regular practice I have felt enormous benefits to my health and well being. Therefore, I am more energized and happier in all other aspects in my life."

    "Laura, I absolutely love your classes - they are such a highlight to my week and in direct contrast to the classes I teach myself. I feel fantastic after every class, but probably the best class is the early morning Friday class, because it sets me up for the day! And I love the challenge you encourage us all to make to take us just that little bit further along the Astanga path each time thank you for being such a lovely teacher."
