Lauren began her yoga practice in 2001, following the ashtanga yoga tradition. Inspired by the transformations she discovered through this practice, she quickly pursued a greater depth of experience and knowledge through a year long yoga teacher certification program in California. She has practiced with the founder of ashtanga yoga, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, as well as several other respected ashtanga teachers. More recently, Lauren has broadened her interests to other forms of yoga and now practices and teaches a blend of styles. To make yoga accessible to everyone, Lauren emphasizes the importance of pranayama and energetic engagement over perfection of form. She is supportive of students at all levels, encouraging them to try new things and make new discoveries. Lauren teaches weekly Yin and Ashtanga classes and subs other classes as necessary.
