Meet the Instructor

Lauren O’Hara, RYT 200 | Teaching since 2016 – Vinyasa Yoga

Lauren’s  yoga practice began in 2004.  She played a variety of sports in high school and college. She began to have a need for something in addition to her physicality that would include a sense of spirituality and inner peace. It wasn’t until 2011 that Lauren realized yoga was becoming an area of deep seated fulfillment in her life.  She found it refreshing that every day the expression was different and that her practice could allow her to quiet her mind so that she could set a different intention for herself.

Lauren finds her yoga practice a good balance to her previous passions of running and traveling, as it allows her to push her boundaries and test what is within her limits physically and mentally.  Lauren completed her 200-hour yoga teaching certification through The Yoga Garden in 2016. She felt privileged to be under the tutelage of Chae Yang, Mark Nelson, and Nikki Robinson.  As a dancer, she particularly enjoys the beauty and expression of movement through vinyasa flow.

Lauren’s classes encourage you to build strength, flexibility, and balance through creative and dynamic movement.  Lauren sees yoga as a part of a holistic approach to healing and wellbeing. She will encourage you to discover this by connecting with your breathing and gaining body awareness. Her classes provide a light and playful atmosphere so you can feel at ease while expanding your own limits.”
