Lauren has practiced yoga on and off for over over 11 years. It wasn’t until February of 2018 that she began to fully incorporate yoga into her life on a regular basis and truly understand the overall benefits. She went to Costa Rica to complete her 200 hour training in September of 2019. Lauren has been in long term recovery from addiction since 2008. She believes that making brain health a priority is the key to living a life you never need to escape from. Yoga has brought peace and better physical health to her life, enhancing her journey in recovery.

Lauren hopes to create a welcoming atmosphere for both men and women to comfortably see what yoga can bring to their lives, from athletes to people who rarely exercise. She is currently offering Bikram Style yoga at The Flying Lotus but can also teach Yin and Vinyasa.  In addition to being a yoga teacher, Lauren works in administration at Gray & Gray and Associates CPAs, P.C. She is also currently the Vice Chairperson on the Board of Directors of Lifted Out of Poverty, a non-profit organization in Massena mentoring teenage girls to help break the cycle of poverty.

Lauren resides in Massena with her husband and three busy children. Her husband and daughter also practice yoga regularly. She loves to read and write. Her favorite quote to live by: You have to laugh at yourself because you’d cry your eyes out if you didn’t.
