Mysore/Ashtanga – Daily Mon-Sat
Lauren has been practicing yoga since her early twenties. She is a long-term student and assistant of Hamish Hendry, one of the worlds most senior ashtanga teachers, and has been making annual trips to study at the source of Ashtanga Yoga, the Sri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India since 2010. She received authorisation to teach the ashtanga system from Sharath Jois in 2013, and has assisted him at the Institute on two occasions. Lauren feels it is important to spend time at the source of Ashtanga Yoga (KPJAYI) and returns annually to keep her connection to the lineage alive.
Lauren is passionate about sharing yoga with those who wouldn’t ordinarily practice and believes yoga is accessible to anyone regardless of age, fitness or ability. Her teaching is traditional, honouring the Ashtanga lineage whilst at the same time being light hearted. She feels it’s important create a supportive environment for students to explore their practice and to build a sense of community within the class. As well a 500hour Yoga Alliance Accreditation and KPJAYI Authorisation, Lauren also holds a Diploma in Yoga Therapy gained via Yoga Campus, this gives her an insight into working with students with injuries or specific health concerns.
