Lauren did an amazing job leading a yoga session the morning of my wedding! It was the perfect way to start my day. She led everyone through a relaxing session that woke up our bodies and opened our minds to allow us to all be very present throughout the day. She knows how to read the class and their skill level perfectly and was able to keep those who practice yoga often engaged while being gentle to the new yogis. She even ended class with a Reiki session which was so thoughtful. Thank you Lauren!!

I took Lauren’s restorative yoga class and it was amazing! Her voice was so soothing and she was very knowledgeable about the practice. She even provided reiki and essential oils while we were in savasana, which was unique and a lovely addition! I’d highly recommend her! You won’t be disappointed.

I would recommend Lauren to anyone! She is such a calming and informative teacher. Her instructions are very clear and accommodated all levels. By the end of the class I felt super relaxed and great all over. She even performed a short Reiki treatment on me when we ended in Savasana. I felt so relaxed and ready to take on my day after her class!

So lucky to have experienced Lauren’s class recently with a small group of wonderful women. My body and mind are both not in the best shape/place so I was a bit apprehensive going into it. Lauren was great to adjust all movements to the different skill sets. I felt great afterward, experiencing an emotional relief like no other. I felt great physically as well! Thanks Lauren for a great class....your demeanor, voice and coaching were just what my body mind and heart needed!

Lauren’s yoga/Reiki class was really fantastic! She has a nice pace and flow and she intuitively knew how much to challenge us to make sure we were engaged but not so much that it seemed too difficult. Her guidance was really helpful and she made us all feel very comfortable! I would absolutely take another class from her in the future.
