Mama, teacher, student, and mala designer, Lauren has taught yoga since 2009.
She is 500-hour certified through Yoga Alliance with Jason Crandell, and her teacher for all offerings heart and soul is Elena Brower. Judith Lasater, Ana Forrest, and Rod Stryker also inform her practice and teaching. She is Reiki attuned level one and two, certified in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and leads mindfulness sessions to public school children through the Mindful Schools method. A devotee of yoga since 1994, she keeps her studentship very close with the belief that the most effective teachers are deeply dedicated to their personal practice. Her practice is her service. In her classes, one can expect both challenging movement and restful ease, with an undercurrent of nervous system down-regulation to help her students access the quiet place that resides inside.
