about us

designed specifically for dancers

classes & structure

Lauren’s Yoga for Dancers class is a vinyasa style class, flowing through dynamic sequences and guided by deliberate breath. This moving meditation builds strength, has a strong focus on stability and flexibility, and brings the dancers awareness away from how they look and toward how they FEEL. Each class is led with an intention to help balance out the rigor and intensity of their dance training, creating a safe space for them to calm their nervous systems, gain trust in their bodies, and come home to themselves.
