Christmas is fast approaching – unlike your dear selves, we are taking only a small break.      Saturday the December 22nd will be our last Studio Class and we will resume Studio classes on Monday 7th January. At this stage I do plan to keep going with the Monday Church classes right through… the 24th as well. So you won’t be yoga deprived.   Please go to the web site for the latest information…Go to and go to the page called CLASSES. Much easier than any other way. I know that many of you don’t read down as far as the class times in the newsletter. It is easier to go straight to the web rather than have to email and ask.


ART HEALS (new website)

The art showing at my home Studio on the 25th of November was a huge success by any standard. I loved it. Thank you all those who came, and especially those who purchased a work. The next exhibition will be THE KARMA-SUTRA MINIATURES, done especially for VALENTINES DAY.

If you missed out on the showing and would like a special viewing, please email me – one can be arranged.  The miniatures are a wonderful gift for Christmas, and not expensive.

TUESDAYS from7pm- 9pm

COST $250 for 5 classes – or $50 per session

All materials will be provided.

By the end of the 5 classes you will have a unique image to take home, and frame to put in your own meditation room. Maybe good enough, stunning enough to be an heirloom. No painting experience needed. If you are nimble enough to sign your own name, you can do these classes.



I have suspended this class until after Christmas as I am so busy painting. I need more hours in the day – and this is where I can get it.



The REVELATION TAROT is now in its 10th year on ETSY. I am at present waiting for scanning and then printing of the extension 9 cards. “Gates and Guardians”, and the accompanying book. There are also ready-to-frame cards, and pins will be on ETSY shortly.

…….is now upon us, and I have caught heaps of Queens. The visitors to my showing who walked the garden were amazed at the quantity of queens in the traps. .. Their peak season is FEBRUARY. I put out my home-made wasp traps, keep them clean and have caught 15 queens in three days, as well as lots and lots of blow flies. These queens didn’t find their way into my roof or walls as they did on previous years. Unlike bees, wasp queens go out searching to a place, and the workers join her. Catch the queens and you head off infestation. If we all did this, there would be less wasp problems. Go to the web site www. LAURIELURE to find out the way to make your own traps (that really work). All you need is drink bottles, honey (they like the cheap Aldi stuff) water and vanilla essence (also the cheapie). I have also used a sugar syrup and vanilla essence when I ran out of honey, and the queens didn’t seem to mind.



I write books to help you. What will you find on ETSY? YAMAS, CHAKRAS, HYPERMOBILITY, THE FIVE TIBETANS AND TEMPLATES and more. There are lots of books there to help you in your progress with yoga.
