Lauren first connected with yoga in a class she took in college. There she learned about the physical as well as spiritual aspects of yoga and how to apply this ancient wisdom to all areas of life. This amazing teacher and class have shaped her subsequent practice and study of yoga. Yoga has inspired a greater mind-body awareness and as a result a sense of connectivity with the global community. Establishing a mind-body connection has helped Lauren to pursue a healthy lifestyle and made her feel vibrant and joyful. For her, feeling connected with body and spirit opens up a sense of commonality among all people and thus a desire to share love. Lauren feels that yoga is about self love and as a result the capacity to share love with others. Lauren has practiced yoga at countess studios in the US and while she was living abroad in Cairo. She loves to experience different styles and different yoga communities. Cairo was an amazing place to practice yoga because the pursuit of a quiet, serene space in a chaotic city is an incredible task. New York City is similar in this respect, and Stanton Street Yoga has become her sanctuary here. She feels that it is important for people, especially in an urban context, to have a safe space where they can go to express themselves and heal. Lauren intends to create this space for people in her classes and use movement to open them to experiencing their authentic self. In addition to teaching yoga, Lauren is pursuing a Masters degree in Public Health Nutrition at NYU.
