I am a yoga teacher in Savannah Georgia and was visiting Sydney Lanier and I’m so glad that I came to the studio she works in. Lauren’s was the instructor and she was amazing! The studio is located on the river and it is beautiful and clean. I would recommend anyone to the studio! Thanks for the great experience while I was in town.
I was first introduced to yoga about 10 years ago. My oldest son
was 6 months old, and I was trying to figure out life in my body. I
had no idea what to expect, but as the instructor guided the class
through a flow, I felt so at home in my body, and I was hooked.
Over the next few years, my family had the experience of traveling
to the Middle East and living in Yerevan, Armenia; where I taught
English in exchange for learning Armenian and Farsi. While my time
there was short, the experience was spiritually transformational
and a catalyst for finding my path. Upon returning to the U.S., I
continued to practice yoga sporadically but not consistently until
2019, when I was experiencing some health issues due to stress. My
doctors told me I needed to “chill” and practice yoga more often.
So, I did. Every class I could find. I began to seek out ways to
get my certification while managing a house of 3 littles. I started
with YogaFit, and upon receiving my Level 1 certification in 2020,
I began teaching classes at a local gym for two years. I completed
my 200 RYT training in April of 2022 through YogaRenew. When I am
practicing and instructing, I feel most at home and feel my most
authentic self. My favorite thing is watching “the lights come on”
when others make a connection in yoga, and the realization of “this
was so much better than I expected” hits them.
I am a mama to 3 wild boys and married to one wild guy. We love to hike and ride our bikes and dance parties in our living room are our favorite. When I’m not in a yoga class, you can find me with a cup of coffee in hand and hopefully a good book, but probably battling loads of laundry. I have a B.A. in Sociology, and although I don’t work in that field, I very much enjoy people; watching and figuring out what makes individuals tick and how we all flow together in this world.
