After moving to San Diego in 2013, Lauren found herself with too much free time and not enough community. On a whim, she decided to take a yoga class and was instantly hooked! Having been a lifelong dancer, yoga provided a complimentary physical practice, and a newfound mental space. Yoga allowed Lauren to connect movement, breath, and focus with a community of passionate, like-minded individuals. It provided a much-needed reprieve from the stress of life in a new city. Classmates soon became friends and yoga soon became a necessity. Lauren enrolled in Teacher Training in the fall of 2015 with the goal of deepening her own practice. Along the way she realized that she had a special opportunity to share the same support, encouragement, and love that she had received with a larger community! It is truly a gift to be able to share her passion and inspiration with others!
