Ashtanga vinyasa, mysore style
CERTIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE
Lauren has practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga for 14 years. Lauren’s physical practice, coupled with her natural propensity to question reality, led her to explore the philosophy of Ashtanga Yoga. Through her teaching, Lauren endeavors to link the physical yoga practice to students’ personal journeys towards Self-realization. Lauren practiced in Houston, TX from 2005-2013 with Yannis Avramidis. She travelled to Mysore, India to attend the KPJAYI in 2010 and is 200RYT. Lauren has also studied with Tim Miller, David Swenson, Shelley Washington, Eddie Stern, and Sharmila Desai. She has been teaching for five years.
I am inspired by the core of altruism in humanity, compassion, lovingkindness, bravery, wisdom and wit.
WHY I PRACTICE
I practice asana to keep my mind/body connection strong. I practice yoga to re-program or de-program my mind in order to see clearly what is real so I may recognize how to act without reaction.
WHY I TEACH
I am committed to creating a safe space for students through open communication and by treating each body as the beautiful and unique, precious gift that it is.
