Ayurveda is known as the ‘sister science of yoga’. Translated from the Sanskrit, Ayur means life, living, and veda means wisdom, truth or science. Thus, ayurveda is a comprehensive, holistic wellness system that is as varied as we humans are. Each ayurvedic protocol is unique, and that is the beauty of how it can foster wellness, longevity and life quality for each person. Ayurvedic wellness strategies can include diet and lifestyle, hatha yoga, pranayama, philosophy and more. It is wondrous path of self discovery and self empowerment.

Lauren has been studying and practicing ayurveda for more than a decade and has studied both its roots and with the best modern practitioners.

She offers regular classes and courses on ayurveda for both the lay person and the teacher. She also counsels people individually to develop practical effective self care strategies.



Lauren offers both international and domestic yoga retreats and teachings. From three days of meditation and practice in New York to a week of sun and surf in Costa Rica, Lauren’s retreats are an unforgettable and nourishing experience.
