Lauren is a 500 hr RYT, trained in India and New York City. Lauren has taught in the fast paced classrooms of New York City, on the beach under rainbows in Maui, and in the expansive halls of Kripalu Center. Through her experiences, she has resonated the most with Swami Kripalu’s encouragement of “self-observation without judgment.” The yoga classroom is an intimate space where we commit to exploring the many sides of ourselves and learn to accept all feedback with the deepest compassion. Lauren found yoga through her own journey, searching for inner peace and personal healing. After embarking on this journey she realized there was no turning back and the opportunity to share yoga with others became the greatest gift. Lauren continues to study with many inspirational speakers, writers, yoga practitioners, and meditation teachers. As she continues to deepen her practice, she takes what she learns back into the classroom with a sense of curiosity, playfulness, and a deep desire to make a difference. With an approachable and calming presence, Lauren strives to make her classes relatable and inspiring. Lauren is also certified in Reiki and Ayurveda.
