Lauren began her yoga journey in 2006 when she fell in love with the physical asana practice. Since then, she has come to find that the poses themselves are only the tip of the iceberg. Throughout the years, yoga has become a lifestyle for Lauren and she strives to teach her students the freedom, support, and love that yoga brings in all areas of life. Lauren completed her RYT 200 certification at Longwave Yoga in 2017 and hopes to pass along the incredible knowledge gained from her inspiring teachers.
Lauren instructs the following:
Beginner Yoga | Basic
Beginner Yoga introduces the families of asana (poses) with emphasis on alignment. This class is playful, conversational, and supportive, while allowing the practitioner to cultivate a strong connection to the mind, body, and breath. Beginner Yoga is appropriate for brand new yogis, those who have injuries, or practitioners who wish to gain a deeper understanding of alignment.
Yin & Yang Yoga | Open
Yin & Yang Yoga is equal parts movement and stillness. The yang portion of class focuses on movement and building heat through a continuous, steady flow of postures in Sun Salutations. Once the body is warm, the yin section of class focuses holding deep stretches to surrender tight muscles and connective tissue. The combination of yin and yang yoga creates a harmonious and balanced mind-body connection leaving you relaxed and centered.
Yin postures are generally held for 3-5 minutes with the support of yoga props. Please inform instructor if you are dealing with injury. With the nature of the class, Yin Yoga may be unsafe for certain injuries.
