Lauren is a 500 RYT trained in India and New York City. Before journeying back to the shoreline, Lauren spent time training and teaching with a variety of renowned instructors in New York City, India, Hawaii, and the Berkshires. Before settling back near her hometown of Guilford, Lauren worked at Kripalu Center in the Berkshires which is one of the largest non-profits for yoga and holistic health in the country. Lauren now teaches 7th & 8th grade at a local middle school while still offering yoga classes and other workshops to youth and adults across the shoreline. Lauren believes 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. With an approachable and calming presence, Lauren strives to make her classes relatable and inspiring, relaxing while still strengthening. Her classes are very breath focused and weave in aspects of mindful meditation. As she continues to deepen her own personal practice, she takes what she learns back into the classroom with a sense of curiosity, playfulness, and a deep desire to make a difference. Lauren is also certified in Reiki and Ayurveda.
