Hi — I’m Lauren. I grew up in Nashville and moved to New York after college to work at an investment bank. In the midst of recovery from eating disorders and compulsive exercise, I discovered yoga and fell in love. I decided to quit my job and go back to school for yoga and clinical social work. Through my healing process, in psychotherapy and on the yoga mat, I learned that my passion is helping people make peace with their bodies.

My goal is to help you build resilience so that you can live the life that you want to live without waging war on your body.

My movement teaching draws from Vinyasa Yoga, Hatha Yoga, the teachings of Nevine Michaan (Katonah Yoga), Rasa Restorative Yoga, Postural Alignment Therapy, Nutritious Movement by Katy Bowman, Movement for Trauma with Jane Clapp, and Yoga for All, a body positive yoga program developed by Dianne Bondy and Amber Karnes.
