Lauren first came to yoga looking for a good workout after starting a doctoral program in physics at UGA, where she was (and still is) constantly hovering over a desk. However, she walked off the mat with a lot more than she bargained for. Yoga has shown her how to draw strength from within throughout all the hardships, and blessings, that life has offered her since. It has shown her how to literally fall flat on her face and laugh instead of cry. Her goal is to facilitate this in others, to help others find strength in their bodies and souls in order to calm the mind. Maybe then we can all meet life with the same patience and acceptance as we see on the mat.
Lauren enjoys vinyasa style classes that break a sweat and offer new opportunities to connect with the body, whether it be in child’s pose or in handstand. She also loves all forms of arm balances. She completed her 200hr YTT at M3Yoga in March of 2019.
