When students come to me and need help addressing their aches and pains, Lauren is the #1 bodyworker that I send them to. She has the ability to look at a body and see things that are elusive to the untrained eye and are certainly hidden from the body that inhabits the pain-inducing pattern. Her curious mind is skilled at recreating the story that got one into the postural misalignment and corresponding pain that she observes, and then is committed to bringing the body out of its pattern and away from pain. One of the things that I appreciate most about Lauren’s work is that she not only works to reeducate the client’s body so that it can thrive upon a more stable platform, but she takes the time to educate each client’s mind so that they understand what their habits are, where their body likes to live, why it likes to live there, and how changing one’s postural habits will help them live in a more centered, pain-free place. Essentially she asks you to live and move more consciously, and then provides you with the tools to do just that. As a teacher, Lauren has helped me to understand the anatomy of the body in a completely approachable way, something that I have been able to pass onto my students and incorporate into my sequencing. She is passionate about her work and a valuable part of Kula’s 200-hour teacher training program. I value her relationships based perspective of the human body and consider her a gift to the Kula community at large.
Lauren is the best anatomy teacher I know. (And I know many very good ones.) She has led multiple modules for Kula’s 200hr and advanced teacher trainings, and she is smart, funny and transmits information in a uniquely coherent, assimilable way. Kula students love her. She is also a supremely skilled bodyworker and body reader. She has worked on me, my family and a slew of students and friends. Her adept eye and touch are a rare gift. You would be lucky to have her as your teacher or bodyworker. I know I am.
Lauren’s sensitivity and movement awareness is brought to the table. With every stroke she makes it is an expression of her willingness to enter into the depth and spirit of the work.
Lauren’s intense focus on detail, her deep understanding of anatomy & firm, confident touch are like magic. Lauren has a gift. Her knowledge of anatomy, integrative techniques & yoga has been an integral part of my practice & my increasing physical awareness this past year.
Lauren has the depth of practice & clarity of perception to efficiently & profoundly shift the body. With just one session I felt energized, centered & extremely lucky to have found such an amazing practitioner. I highly recommend her to all of my yoga students as well as anyone looking for pain relief, postural change & freedom in movement.
As a yoga teacher students frequently come to me in search of a way to heal injuries or re-pattern poor postural habits. I am constantly referring my students to Lauren. She knows the body and how to effect specific change in it so well that it’s like she’s playing an instrument she has studied and loved for years. That instrument is the human body. We should all know our bodies a little better. And what makes Lauren’s work so exceptional is that she doesn’t just provide a quick fix through massage but teaches, through her structural integration work, how to successfully correct whatever brought you to her in the first place. In that teaching she provides you with the knowledge and awareness to continue the process on your own. It’s definitely a true example of the “teach a man to fish” adage. For the students who have gone to her, the results are evident in my yoga classes. They have better alignment, relief from injuries, and smiles of gratitude on their faces.
