A teacher, a dancer, and an adventurer Lauren Griffin believes that everyone should follow his or her dreams. She has followed hers all the way to London. Hailing originally from the great state of Virginia, Lauren began her dance training at The Governors School for the Arts. Her passion for dance traveled her to North Carolina School of the Arts, then to The Ohio State University, and finally to New York City. In NYC, she started her career as a professional dancer. Lauren initially started practicing yoga to complement her dancing and soon found how wonderfully happy she became. Drawn to the great flowing style of Vinyasa yoga, Lauren immediately became a certified yoga teacher through the Joining Heaven and Earth teacher-training program at Om Yoga Center in NYC.

Lauren is very graceful in her teaching. She draws on her extensive dance background to emphasize proper alignment to prevent injury. Clear and precise, with a personal approach to her teaching Lauren teaches a class focused on linking the breath and movement to center the mind and energize the body. She hopes that the happiness of yoga is unveiled to all that take her classes.

Lauren is currently working towards her Level 2 Personal Training Certificate, she is a REPS Level 3 Yoga Instructor, 200hr Yoga Alliance recognized teacher, CPR qualified, and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance.
