Saturday morning class with Emily was just what I needed to start the weekend. Emphasis on breath and stretching felt so good. Thank you, Purple Blossom!
Lauren is a mom and former public school teacher turned professional firefighter. She is a Libra and enjoys weight training and running, beach bumming, reading and listening to podcasts, and learning to play her harmonium. She has been involved in diverse forms of movement and athleticism throughout her life and finds yoga to be a form of physical and mental therapy that can be practiced anywhere, anytime, with any body.
Lauren’s light-hearted yet challenging teaching style allows students the space to discover new potentials and foster deeper understandings of mind-body-spirit connections and universal values. In class, she hopes her unconditional positive regard enhances the shared experience of yoga and that students leave feeling nurtured and stimulated after sharing space and a few giggles.
Lauren loves being a student and teacher. Practicing since 2006 and teaching since 2019, her favorite forms of yoga include vinyasa, hatha, yin, Jivamukti, bhakti, and SUPY. She pursued yoga teacher training to not only enrich her personal practice but to guide others in expanding their own personal capacities. She completed her YTT-200 in 2019 at Purple Blossom Yoga through Longwave Yoga with Mary Glackmeyer and Logan Wagenseller. In 2020, she received her SUPY certification through Longwave Yoga with Logan Wagenseller and Jessie Greenwell.
