"Lauren truly embodies years of intensive and committed study...I have watched her closely for (several) years and know that she brings an integrity, clarity, and wisdom that only years of living what she teaches could allow. (Her students and teacher trainees) will immediately gain by studying how to teach from an exceptional teacher. She is definitely someone we all would want the next generation of teachers to be informed and influenced by..." -Yogarupa Rod Stryker

Her teaching style is personal, humorous, insightful, and infinitely knowledgeable about everything yoga: from asana to philosophy; from pranayama to anatomy; from meditation to energy. Lauren has the unique ability to guide both beginning students and advanced yoga teachers into the very depths of what it means to practice and live your yoga on a daily basis. How many teachers out there have this profound effect on students? I look forward to studying with Lauren and continuing to share her gifts with my students for many years to come" -Robyn Parets
