Lauren started practicing in 2007 and teaching in 2009, and since then has continued to grow as a teacher and student. She feels blessed by many teachers in her life, gaining knowledge and experience from each along the way. She is a certified Baptiste Power Yoga instructor, and received her 500hr & 800hr certification with Sri Dharma Mittra. What she loves about the practice is the ability to always be a student; there is space for something new to learn each day from her students, teachers & in her own practice. She believes yoga is for everybody and part of the practice is exploring what works for each person. With self inquiry, dedication, patience, and the practice of ahimsa anything is possible.
Lauren and her sister Kelly opened Shakti Power Yoga in Nashville in 2012, and every day she is grateful for the community and the space they have created together, and with the inspiring Shakti team. She is reminded daily that the practice is about connection and love - connection to oneself and to others to create a power and positive impact in the world. Together they lead international yoga retreats and created Shakti Yoga University. Shakti U was born out of the desire to share the practice of yoga and create leaders by holding yearly 200hr and 300hr trainings and continued education for current teachers.
Yoga has transformed Lauren's life and she is grateful to be of service to others sharing her passion. Her classes are powerful, playful, and challenge students to go within and embrace whatever shows up on the mat in each moment. She invites you to join her in the journey to create truth and authenticity on & off the mat.
