Hi, I'm Lauren, a 28 year young yogi, avid traveler, scuba junky, and environmental enthusiast :). Although I'm from Atlanta, I rarely stay in one place for long, so hopefully we can catch one another some place around this beautiful Earth!
My personal yoga journey...
I so clearly recall the day that a friend of mine invited me to my very first yoga class on the beach during sunset in magical Byron Bay, Australia. As a beginner, I was hesitant to try yoga for the first time, but the thought of a sunset backdrop and the sound of waves crashing in the distance was motivation enough. Soon, I was a regular, constantly inviting new friends to join in on the sunset sessions. With each practice, I felt myself transforming, becoming more self aware and connected to the environment and my surroundings. With each inhale, gaining patience and a widened perspective; with each exhale, letting go of any negative energy residing within me. With each Virabhadrasana, feeling incredibly empowered and resilient; and with each savasana, humbled...being reminded that I am just as much a part of this world as the wild trees or the unforgiving seas, as gravity melts me closer to the earth.
Practicing yoga has the power to teach you to love yourself and embrace unity. It will improve your patience and communication skills beyond measure and teach you to live in the NOW. Yoga is an invitation to awaken and explore yourself and your connection with others and this earth that we live on, especially when done in raw, earthy, outdoor nature. It will undoubtedly increase your flexibility and strength overall.
Through our training, we will work together to break down walls and build up confidence over time while increasing both physical and mental flexibility. We will work hard, get sweaty, and most importantly, have fun! I personally feel my happiest, purest, best self while practicing yoga in nature and I yearn to spread this feeling with all of you! :) ~ Namaste ~ Laurenita
