Laurent Roure

Laurent's teaching is influenced by his teachers and a 15-year experience with a variety of styles of yoga which are highly flexible, allowing him to individually tailor his classes to suit students abilities and bodies. Laurent's discoveries on practicing with yoga, the body, and the mind are never ending and his style of teaching evolves constantly.

In 2009 Laurent qualified as a 500-Hour Hatha yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance using the Yogahaven method. Since then he has been teaching in studios, gyms, workshops and on retreats and have cultivated a welcoming and joyful approach to the art of teaching yoga.

Laurent began practicing yoga in 1998 and his yogic journey continues to this day as a result of private tuition with his teacher, Su Sareen. Su and he have been working together since 2011, and Laurent is honored to learn from Su and her unique style of yoga, inspired by the beautiful works of Vanda Scaravelli. He is also intensively studying with great teachers such as John Stirk, Gary Carter, Doug Keller from the United States (Yoga as Therapy).

Stephen Nock

Stephen has trained in Chiang Mai, Thailand and in London for his Thai yoga and Ayurvedic massage therapies. These massage techniques are exquisitely compatible with mindful yoga and add to the benefit of your practice, leaving you rejuvenated and refreshed.

Thai Yoga massage

Often described as yoga thats done to you, Thai yoga massage uses a combination of deep tissue massage, gentle rocking, and assisted yoga stretches to leave you feeling deeply relaxed. The massage is performed through loose clothing of the type that you would wear for yoga.

Between your classes, you will be free to take part in exciting activities available in the area.


  • You will be able to hire a good quality bike for just 15 EUR and are then at liberty to explore the area at your own pace.


  • There are many short walks around the farm. For a longer day out, you can experience the walks along the Costa Brava and towards Pirineu de Girona.

Horse riding

Enjoy the unique pleasure of horse riding in the Costa Brava and Pirineu de Girona area. Discover the hidden spots of the region on from an interesting vantage point.

Sightseeing and day trips

Explore and enjoy roses. With four kilometers of sandy beach at the head of a sweeping bay, a fishing port and an ancient Greek colony, roses has become the tourist capital of northern Costa Brava. The town also boasts water sports, castles, coves, and restaurants.

If you are interested in art then you will find yourself in paradise. Visit the Gala Dal Castle in Pbol, formerly owned by the infamous Salvador Dali. It was intended as a shrine to the eccentric artist's wife and is well worth a visit. Continuing in the Dali vein, why not wander across to the Teatre Museu Dali in Figueres, a journey through the imagination of the artist, where Dali created a memorial to himself. It is one of the most visited museums in Spain.

If history is more of your thing then explore Girona's old town, and take a stroll among its medieval streets. Or, visit the Monestir de Sant Pere de Rodes, an old monastery which was built on the site of a Roman temple, where you can watch the most magical sunrises from the top of the Pyrenees.

Don't forget that you can always just relax and float the day away in the luxurious infinity pool.

  • Review by Jessica Wyld from Perth, Australia

    "The classes were fun and informative. I regularly practise fast paced Vinyasa at home so found Hatha yoga to be the perfect change for a relaxed retreat, with Laurent paying special attention to every participant (and their respective injuries) and making us all feel very comfortable. The classes were fun and informative and despite being a regular practiser I learnt a lot about refining my poses."

  • Review by Sasha Bates from Europe

    "I particularly liked the way he came at well known postures from a different angle It is clear from the way Laurent teaches that he has done lots of work on his own practice and explored the way his body moves from within, and hes keen to help you find your own way too. Like many Scaravelli teachers, he is more interested in finding how the body feels on the inside and moving from a very deep place, than he is in finding the perfect shape to the posture.Unlike some Scaravelli teachers, though, Laurent is not averse to a bit of flow, and a bit of dynamism, as a contrast. I particularly liked the way he came at well known postures from a different angle, which meant I was able to experience them in a different way, rather than just going through the motions as can sometimes happen with classics like Adho Mukha Savasana (downward-facing dog) or Marjarayasana (cat pose).I also liked how he integrates pranayama into the postures, rather than simply separating it out at the end. I found Laurents class to be playful and exploratory, caring but fun, intense and deep but without being serious or severe. Its a really nice combination, and at the end of our class I felt relaxed but well exercised."

  • Review by Tim from London, UK

    "My most favourite moments were the morning sunshine drenched classes. It was my first yoga retreat and I was feeling slightly nervous about my level of yoga and also the idea of spending a week in a house with a group of people Id never been with before. After the first day both of these fears quickly vanished and I felt as a guest in a friends home.My most favourite moments were the morning sunshine drenched classes which felt as though they became slightly more challenging as the week progressed but even for a beginner like me they were really enjoyable and left me feeling relaxed and full of energy at the same time. Especially when followed off with a refreshing dip in the pool.I know I should think of some things that didnt go so well, or could be improved but I honestly cant. it was so well organised and I felt very looked after"
