Join us as we bring you closer to the healing power of nature. We do this through our signature offerings of awakening experiences that combine yoga, music and hands on-healing.
"The balance of passion and professionalism that Laura and Bone (Rigpa Arts founders and leaders) put into their practice and programs is truly one of a kind. Laura is an outstanding yoga teacher who weaves so much information about the philosophy and technique of yoga into a beautiful practice. She also is a reiki energy healer and is sensitive to the dynamics of any group she works with. Of course Bone is an incredibly talented musician and artist. Their connection spreads so much light and a feeling of peace. I have loved all of my classes with them and hope to attend a retreat very soon!"

"I followed Laura and Bone in Shanghai for several sessions for their yoga with live music offering. Their energy, minds and souls are just fantastic. Whether you are a beginner or a yoga addict practitioner, they will brighten your day... and maybe bring you to a new page and a new path of your book."

MUSIC is an unspoken language that communicates deeply to all souls in life. Vibrations that react with our body on a cellular and chemical level, help to bring body, mind, spirit and emotions to better health and equilibrium. For Bone, music allows him to channel a vital message and to preserve the unique culture of his ancestors.
"Bone is one of those artists who can immediately transport you to a different place.... who can pull you into the world his songs are painting. It's an amazing experience to work in the studio with him because there is this unspoken message and guidance that is being channelled through his songs which directs our every decision. It's much more than the notes played or the words sung....it cannot be explained with words. Bone has a gift."

YOGA is the union of body, mind, soul and spirit, though mindful movement, conscious breathing practices and meditative disciplines. By stilling the mind and peeling away the layers of our subconscious through yogic practices, we can deeply feel, experience and come to know our true selves.
"I've been fortunate enough to have several yoga practices with Laura Shirreff recently. Her one-on-one personalized sessions were transformative and enjoyable. My primary focus was to reduce stress and she leveraged various breathing practices to help me to accomplish this goal. I have practiced yoga for numerous years with various yoga teachers, Laura by far is the best! You can tell she LOVES sharing the benefits of yoga practice and she is attentive to your individual yoga needs. She is patient and compassionate to her yogis and I can't wait to practice yoga with her again."

REIKI is a energy transfer therapy of holistic nature which helps heal imbalances of energy in mind, body, spirit and emotions. By tapping into the unconscious layers of our energetic body, it is a powerful tool for self understanding and spiritual development. For Laura, Reiki allows her to connect and enter into the ether, to transmit light and love to heal others.
"The universe conspired to bring Laura to Shanghai at a time when I was dealing with some personal challenges. I wholeheartedly believe that the time she spent healing myself, my baby and my home provided the impetus for a beautiful change in the energy in our lives. Laura radiates warmth, calmness and lightness. She is a true blessing. I cherish and savor the treatments as a time to really disconnect from the peripheral noise of life and enter the realm of absolute discovery. Love, energy and crystals power Laura’s fabulous sessions, which may not always be easy, but are definitely a journey to deepening self awareness and interconnections with self on a profound level."
