About Laurence

What I’m passionate about in teaching Yoga is sharing with my students and learning from them. I put a priority on guiding them towards a deeper understanding of their bodies (physical, energetical and mental) so that they can improve their well-being in day to day life and their balance for all years to come. A student told me that she was “starting to feel like living within her body whereas she was living separate from her body before”; I sincerely wish all yoga practitioners can reach that awareness some day once they are ready for it.

You can expect my classes to never be the same. Some days I will focus more on the anatomical benefits of the practice, others on its energetical aspects linking the Yin practice to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) or I will teach a rather silent class as an opportunity to "walk on the path towards meditation". There is however a constant in all my teachings, mindfulness on breath is always emphasised.

Born from a Swiss-Italian mum and a French dad, I grew up in between the 2 countries and later settled in Switzerland to build a career and a family. Professionally as well as privately, I was driven all the way by a desire to help people around me to grow. I first spent 13 years in managerial positions with a global leading company and then trained as a Business & Life coach accompanying people into change for 7 years. Teaching yoga is a natural continuation on this path. I first stepped on a yoga mat in 2010, engaged in a passionate practice with a boundless curiosity after moving to Singapore in 2012 and now balance my nearly daily Yang practice with Yin types of yoga as well as meditation.

Certified Yoga Alliance RYT200 Yoga instructor in 2013, I trained for more than 700 hours in Asia and elsewhere and was particularly blessed to deepen my understanding of Yin yoga & Meditation with Sarah Powers and Jo Phee, of Yoga Therapy with Arun Rana. I am also a big fan of Myofascial Release (MFR) technics and love to integrate its benefits in my classes. I have studied this matter from several sources and I'm one of the happy few Yoga Tune Up® certified teachers in Europe.

I have been teaching regular weekly classes in several yoga studios since 2014. My Yin & Restorative class was awarded Shape magazine Award of the "Most relaxing yoga class in Singapore" in 2017.

Back in Geneva since 2018, I cannot wait to meet you there and around soon! Laurence Chehab-Fabry
