Teaching yoga for me is essentially about sharing. A mutual sharing: each student makes me grow by bringing me something unique and I take into account their particularities, their uniqueness, with kindness. Becoming a yoga teacher has been a revelation and the feedback I receive reinforces my decision to change my life. If you would like to know more about me and my yoga teaching journey, my personal practice, feel free to go and read the "About" page.
Here you will discover the testimonies of some of my students, confirmed yogi's or beginners, who participated in one or more classes in the different studios where I had the chance to teach yoga. Yin yoga, Restorative yoga, yoga Nidra, Meditation practice, Myofascial massage, Pranayama (breath control), Hatha yoga,... no matter what type of yoga class I take, the feedback I receive is often very positive.
Yoga has the advantage that it can be adapted to the physical condition and needs of its practitioners. Yin yoga (nidra, restorative, yin, iyengar) for example is more gentle, focusing on deep stretching of the body, breathing and letting go. Yang yoga (vinyasa, ashtanga yoga, hatha), on the other hand, is dynamic yoga. It is practised around sequences of asanas (yoga postures in Sanskrit) to work in particular on muscle strengthening. In addition, each class and each exercise can be adapted according to the yogis present and their desires, their capacities.
The benefits of yoga are numerous and everyone can feel them: relaxation of the body and the spirit, better knowledge of oneself, relaxation, control of one's breathing, mental appeasement, flexibility, general well-being.
Whether you are looking for an introduction to yoga or to start a regular practice, you will quickly discover the benefits of yoga and regain your vital energy. Perhaps the testimonials below will inspire you to start yoga too!
Wonderful class. Really well taught, clear instructions and well-rounded class (Myofascial Self-massage)
Had a wonderful class with Laurence, yin yoga with massage balls. I was my first time and I didn't know what to expect but Laurence was very kind to explain the concept of yin yoga with it's focus on deep relaxation, slow movement, breathing and letting go. After the class, I feel like I had an hour of both massage and meditation. Thanks you Laurence (Yin & Balles)
Great class in English, thanks! (Myofascial Self-massage)
Laurence is great and I was very surprised by how effective the massage balls are (Myofascial Self-massage)
First time I tried restorative yoga, I was seeking a way to find relaxation and improve my sleep. I was surprised to discover new ways to make my body and mind relax. Highly recommend! (Restorative Yoga)
Wonderful class to really relax and recharge. Very calm and meditative (Restorative Yoga)
Good relaxing course. Also nice to have it in both languages (Restorative Yoga)
Very nice class. Restorative yoga is really relaxing and the teacher is great! (Restorative Yoga)
Never did restorative yoga before so I wanted to try it out. Not necessarily a workout but definitely a great and much needed de-stressing and relaxation session (Restorative Yoga)
Concept of Nidra yoga really interesting (Yoga Nidra)
Fantastic class, very relaxing (Restorative Yoga)
Fully relaxed and appeased after this course. Strongly recommended after a long work day (Restorative Yoga)
Such an amazing class! The teacher is so professional and calm (Restorative Yoga)
So restorative after a long working d’au Slept so well After this wonderfull course Impressive ! (Yoga Nidra & Restorative Yoga)
Fantastic class. My entire body felt much relieved after this practice. Strongly recommend as a complement if you perform sports on a regular basis (Restorative Yoga)
Perfect slow relaxing stretching practice! I'm 7 months pregnant and I found it a perfect way to release muscle tension without exhausting myself (Yin yoga)
The styles of yoga that Laurence offers are deeply healing for the body, and she is a wonderful, patient teacher. Working with her has been extremely helpful for my back pain. Thank you Laurence!
Tout d'abord la premiere seance de yoga a été sur bien accueillante, je me suis tout de suite sentie bien, apaisée, c'est pourquoi j'ai decide de continuer. Laurence fait sont travail avec beaucoup de professionnalisme ainsi que beaucoup de tacte. L'ambiance est au rendez-vous, on se sent bien dans son cours. Je conseille vivement d'assister a une seance. A savoir qu'elle a un bon temperament de voix, tres doux et relaxant.
I did the trial session Laurence offered to Glocals members. It was a Restorative Yoga session, which I'd never heard about before. I found it very relaxing for the body and calming for the mind. After a very though week at work it was the perfect way to unwind and get ready for the weekend. I thoroughly recommend Lets Yoga. Laurence is very nice and competent. The place is charming, light and confortable. I will go back for more soon
Good luck Laurence for the next chapter. I will always remember your yin classes. I’ve never found one quite so beautiful.
Loved it! My shoulders are less tense after 1 session of yin yoga. V effective, v patient and professional instructor - Laurence. Thank you!
I obtained exactly what I wanted from the workshop.... To gain sufficient technique in order target my own problem areas, which will allow me to focus on & incorporate this form of therapy in day to day maintenance of good health.
I have been taking yin yoga classes with Laurence for over 2 years. I never miss her class unless I am traveling. Yin is a wonderful way to start my week! Laurence ensures that each class has a variety of poses with each class being different than the previous. Laurence leads us through a series of poses and calmly explains the purpose of each pose so that I learn something new each week. In summary, I love the variety that Laurence creates. Furthermore, Laurence has a lovely voice that calms me and allows me to focus. This may sound trivial, but sometimes an instructor's voice or accent can be distracting. Finally, I would add that Laurence takes time during the practice to adjust and advise without judging. She knows her "yogis" well and always enquires about injuries or general wellbeing. She uses a variety of props (blocks, strap, bolster) to individualize the poses for me as required. A wonderful attention to personal abilities! In short, I can highly recommend Laurence as a yin instructor. I truly enjoy her class!
Laurence is very selfless and shared many useful tips, I really appreciate the session.
Today's workshop was great! Many thanks for teaching me all the techniques using the Therapy balls. I enjoyed the calm atmosphere and the rhythm of the entire workshop. I felt much more envigorated after the workshop. The time has passed so quickly and that's thanks to you skilled coaching methods. Not one dull moment.
Would just like to thank Laurence from AlphaBalance for another great Yin session this morning. If you're looking for a class which challenges your body and mind in a totally different way and is less sweaty(!) then check out her classes - she's fab!
I love the instructor for your Yin yoga class (Laurence). Only wish is that she teaches more classes after work hours and at more convenient central location. The class was small and intimate which was great. Laurence explained in great details and have good knowledge of body anatomy. I think even for beginners, the class was not intimidating as Laurence tries to help and give a lot of options. Laurence has a very soothing voice which really relaxes you. The mat (very sticky so I really like it) and props are all great. Only thing is I wish there was an option to use therapy balls (hard ones) instead of soft tennis balls.
Lovely class and teacher. Was just what I needed at the time.
Hi, this evening I had an amazing restorative class with Laurence. Throughout the whole class I felt as though I were practically asleep but I wasn't. I managed to follow instructions and move into the next poses when it was required. I want to experience it again.
Great class! Nice and slow, with plenty of time to really benefit from each asana. Lots of useful props available and suggestions of how to use them, if required (note that props are optional - no need to use them if you prefer not to) (Yin & Restorative yoga)
The yin balles class was excellent , I would recommend it to everybody to balance more active yoga and get to deep stretching alignment and relaxation (Yin yoga & Balles)
Perfect ! Slow motion but powerful sequence. Very précise explanations about the ways to do the différent poses (Hatha yoga)
Great class, she was very communicative and friendly (Yin & Restorative yoga)
Friday at Midday is a perfect Organization for such a schedule ! Perfect Time before the End of the week to benefit from the course (Yin & Restorative yoga)
Super class and very popular. Loved it. (Yin & Restorative yoga)
Super class. Only took me short time to manage use of rolling balls but almost immediate results (Myofascial Self-massage)
Great stretches! (Yin yoga)
Wonderful class! Really nice stretching poses and relaxing atmosphere. I particularly enjoyed Laurence’s gentle tone which enabled me to release tension in my mind and body (Yin & Restorative yoga)
Went to Wednesday Yin Yoga. Instructor voice is calming and gentle. Suitable for people who has stiff body n need some relax stretching. Rated 5/5 stars
Thank you for the nice roll & release workshop, Laurence! :) I am keen to join back again if you are teaching level 2 before you leave
Best yin yoga instructor ever. Wishing you the best, Laurence!
Before I started joining Laurence’s yin yoga classes, I was of the believe that the only way to reduce stress and find a balance is doing intensive workouts. But there was always missing something. It only took a few lessons with her to realise what a calming and soothing effect yin yoga has on me. She taught me how to better connect with me, my body and my mind. What I appreciate most (beside her great teaching skills) is her ability to treat everybody for what he/she is; an individual. She understands the different needs, capabilities but also physical limitation and always offers different option to do a pose (reminding us to listen to our body). I could not have had any better teacher than Laurence to start my “yin yoga journey”.
5/5 stars. The workshop on myofascial with Laurence was excellent. On time, practical, and one could feel the passion she has for the subject. I can recommend the class.
Thanks so much for the workshop yesterday. It was amazing! I felt really relaxed after the workshop like I feel after having gone for a massage.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Roll & Release workshop! Laurence was very patient and kind and I enjoyed her approach to teaching. I was able to take home a few new tricks for my own personal practice, which is what I was seeking upon joining. Overall a pleasant and enriching experience. Thank you!
Laurence has taught me Yin Yoga since February 2015 in Swiss Club Singapore. She is a caring, dedicated and knowledgeable Yoga instructor and her instructions are clear which allows the participant to adjust the posture according to body limit of each individual. She explains in detail the benefit of each posture, which body parts/muscles are targeted etc. This allows the participants to understand their body limitations better and feel re-assurance on benefit of each yoga posture. I would like to recommend her to share her knowledge of Yoga to the larger community.
Thanks a lot to Laurence, assertive yogi that took us for 75 minute in a world of relaxation and wellness with her warm voice and clear guidance. It was my first experience of Yin and I loved it. You will see me again!
Thanks for the wonderful class! I will check out your Tanderra class timing! I really love your class and your energy. Most relaxing yin yoga class I have ever attended. It's always great to find a yoga teacher who teaches with such passion :) .
Wow! LOVED the Yin yoga session I've just been to with Laurence from AlphaBalance at the Polo Club. What a great complement to the sweatest Taba and Vinyasa sessions! We used the wall and the whole session was lying down. My whole body and mind feel light and airy now. Totally recommend it!
Wonderful class with Laurence. So relaxing and fantastic stretching. Thanks!
For anyone looking for a bit of Yin with their Yang yoga I can totally recommend the new Alphabalance class at the polo club which i tried tonight. It's a 90 min class and is the perfect combo. Enough yang to get you warm and the muscles engaged and then yin to balance you out again and restorative poses to totally relax body and mind. Feel like I will sleep like a baby tonight! Thanks Laurence Chehab-Fabry!
I went for the Myofascial roll and release class. It was very useful and I have been practising the moves daily. It has benefited me a lot in releasing my tension of neck and shoulder. Look forward to attending more classes at AlphaBalance. Thanks!
I think tonight might actually have been life changing (Deep stretching workshop at Tanderra).
Loved the atmosphere of the studio and the instructor’s guidance (Laurence)!
In the midst of private estate. Clean and nice environment. Instructor allow for changes to help make poses more achievable. Enjoyed class.
Fantastic Yin Yoga session at the polo club tonight - great for my tight hips and shoulders and for the mind, will sleep soundly tonight - thank you Laurence & AlphaBalance.
The yin yoga class was really lovely and it provided a good balance to the more energetic styles of yoga that I have done. Laurence is a beautiful teacher who was very patient with all my moving around. I didn't realise my hip flexors were that tight! Thank you, I will definitely join in again.
Love Laurence's class, such a lovely way to unwind and reset mid week.
