As a child Laura preferred walking on her hands to walking on her feet. She was one of Rika Taeymans' first pupils and loved swinging on the trapeze.
After ten years of practice, she became Rika's colleague in circomotorics. Nowadays, she prefers writing to swinging on the trapeze. Together with Rika, she decided to write down some of the exercises so that many more children would have the chance to enjoy these exciting games.
