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!
Originally from Northern Virginia, Lauren stayed in Greenville after graduating from ECU and marrying an Eastern North Carolinian. Lauren and her husband have two yorkies, Buddy and Lilly, and a toddler son, Asher, who loves yoga as much as his toy cars. She worked in public education for seven years, but is currently working in the fire/rescue service. Lauren is a Libra and enjoys weight training and running, beach bumming, crafting, reading, and spending time with family. Lauren has a diverse athletic background and practiced yoga at home and in gyms for years before discovering yoga studios. After her first class at Purple Blossom she was hooked; shortly thereafter, she decided to pursue yoga teacher training to not only enrich her personal practice and help maintain a healthy lifestyle, but to also learn how to share the gift of yoga with others to influence mind-body-spirit connections, self-reflection and discovery, strength and compassion, and sense of community. She completed her YTT-200 in August 2019 at Purple Blossom Yoga through Longwave Yoga with Mary Glackmeyer and Logan Wagenseller.
