What We're About
Founder/Yoga Instructor E-RYT 200 (Registered Yoga Teacher) , E-PRYT 85 (Prenatal Registered), Special Needs Yoga Instructor
I have practiced Yoga for over ten years and have co-facilitated yoga teacher trainings. My first introduction to yoga was during high school when I learned the incredible benefits of the practice to improve my performance in swimming and surfing as well as on the field with soccer and lacrosse.
Working as a bartender for many years, I felt the urge to make a life change and Yoga was the key to bringing me to this new and peaceful place. I received my 200-hr Yoga Certification in 2014 under the training of esteemed Gina Lee of Bearfoot Yoga Center. I continued my training to become Pre- Natal certified, Yin Yoga certified, and Special Needs Certified among the many other professional trainings I’ve experienced.
From these humble beginnings as the “Roving Yogi,” I have traveled Long Island
during the last few years to bring the yoga practice to rehabilitation and recovery facilities, sports teams and athletic programs, libraries, high schools, office buildings, community centers, seniors programs, physical therapy offices and CrossFit gyms.
I am comfortable working privately and in small groups with learning disabled and autistic children and adults, physically disabled and fragile seniors, and others with special needs.
I approach my yoga classes from a health and healing perspective regularly
integrating Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques, Ayurveda
(sister science of yoga), and meditation for a calm yet rejuvenating practice.
My trainings include:
Yin Yoga & Myofascial Release
Yoga for Women's Health (Menopause, Endometriosis, PCOS, IVF , Fertility)
Yoga for Low Back Pain
Yoga & TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)
Yoga for Athletes

"Lauren has done chair yoga classes at my office and everyone loved it. Whether beginners or experienced yoga practitioners, we all got an amazing stretch just working out of a chair!We didn’t have to change our clothes or get down on the floor, and walked away feeling rejuvenated and recharged. We had her come back for several sessions. A small group yoga session is also a great office retreat idea. I highly recommend it. Every office should offer this great service for their employees!"
"I've been to Lauren's class several times in a small group home setting. Perfect class for beginner or experienced, she makes it relevant for all participants and there is nothing more calming than her voice and instruction."
"Lauren is wonderful! This is now the third location I have followed her to since the very beginning of my yoga practice! She leads varied yoga classes for all levels! She is compassionate, patient and very informative.
Positions are explained very concisely with variations offered for practitioners of all levels. The purpose of each asana is explained both physical and emotional levels.
All this is done with wit and humor and an abundance of knowledge! Salt of the Earth is the epitome of wellness through yoga. Come join!"
