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 be never 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. I am grateful that all along these years, I have always been supported by my husband Pierre (of Lebanese and French origins) and our 3 kids (now teens and young adults aged 14 to 20).

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.

Just back in Geneva, I can not wait to meet you there in 2019! Laurence Chehab-Fabry
