Lauren began her yoga practice in 2003 to relieve chronic low back pain. Over the years she practiced different styles of yoga and experienced the numerous benefits; healing of the body, clarity of the mind and softening of the heart; and wanted to learn more and share it with others. She received her 200HR certification from Cloud Nine Yoga in 2006 and 500HR certification in 2011. She enjoys teaching all levels and loves watching students build strength and flexibility in their bodies and their lives. Lauren is currently preparing for Physical Therapy school. Her other joys are swing dancing with her husband, baking for her friends, and hiking in the great outdoors.
