Secluded Island Resort in Turks & Caicos Welcomes Weekly Yoga Sessions with Laura Mensen
Guests of The Meridian Club on Pine Cay may now participate in weekly yoga sessions every Wednesday morning. Yoga on Pine Cay sessions will be guided by Laura Mensen, Yoga Instructor, and students can expect to experience a warm and caring yoga class that is both informative and precise as well as liberating and free flowing.
“In Class my wish is for students to let go of EGO and find inner awareness and move consciously – listening to your body and respecting where it is at on any given day at any given time,” she states.
Laura encourages inner awareness and presence of mind during her classes as well as light hearted humor and constructive humility. Her philosophy on yoga is, “that it is a life practice with an infinite amount of teachings and lessons – it is much more than “asana” – which are the postures we do in a class.” Students may also choose the option of hands-on assists during classes to both encourage healing and provide guidance through postures and movements.
Yoga is much more than a physical practice on the mat, but a life practice that guides you to be a better person in body, mind and spirit. Laura encourages her students to practice yoga on and off the mat.
