Our Team

We are here for you

Laurent Roure

Founder and senior yoga teacher, Laurent has 20 years of yoga practice and 8 years of yoga teaching under his belt. In 2010 the first Yogalaurent retreat was born out of a visit to Klavze28, a beautiful guesthouse in Slovenia’s verdant Socca Valley. Klavze28 is owned by Laurent’s good friend Ben, and a business partnership blossomed. To this day, Klavze28 remains Laurent’s favourite and most cherished retreat location, despite expansion all over the world.

More than ten years down the line and Laurent’s ethos is to always build friendly connections with all owners of retreat locations in order to foster a sense of warmth and comfort within every holiday. The close connection between Laurent and his retreat destinations ensures that the atmosphere is always just right, there is a shared code of ethics and you can be assured of your enjoyment during your stay. Every Yogalaurent retreat venue is also guaranteed to have up-to-date, well equipped and beautiful studios, in order to elevate your practice and ensure you have the space to refine your skills in comfort.

Jose Souto

He was intrigued by the way Laurent was running his retreats and offered his valuable help to deal with the PR and marketing. Later he expanded his portfolio to include the digital aspects of Yogalaurent, the finances and public relations. Jose’s previous experience as a marketer for companies like Yamaha allowed Yogalaurent to flourish and grow into a multi-faceted company offering retreats all over the world with a bespoke touch.
