Registered Yoga Teacher
Registered Holistic Nutrition Practitioner
Lauren began practicing yoga 5 years ago as a way to escape her hectic life of running busy city restaurant kitchens. After four years of practicing on her own mat and at various hot studios in Halifax she was in search of the deeper spiritual aspects of yoga and how to create internal fire within her own body. This exploration took her to Kerala, India to study traditional Ashtanga yoga under Radhika Yoga and obtain her 200hr teacher training certification.
Since her travels to India Lauren went on to find a passion for helping people with disabilities, as her mother suffered from a series of mini stokes and had diabetes. She believed yoga was a powerful tool for helping manage pain and discomfort and went on to obtain a certification for chair yoga with Julie Palmer.
From there Lauren wanted to slow down her practice even more and obtained a Therapeutic Ashtanga Certification with Manju Jois and received a 100 hour Certification for Yin Yoga with Stephanie Calhoun.
Lauren not only holds certifications within the yogic rhelmn but also in Holistic Nutrition, Ayurvedic Nutrition, Culinary Arts and has appeared on various television shows including The Social, Canada AM and Food Networks Top Chef Canada. With her strong passion for holistic living and all things natural; she absolutely loves to share her knowledge of yoga and the healing arts through her practice of the yogic limbs and natural vegan food cooking classes.
