“Lauren found the practice of yoga as a sanctuary from the demands of the corporate profession and found that the practice supported and enabled her to navigate life, explore her truth and discover her inner potential.”

Lauren teaches Pre and Post-natal yoga, slow flow, yin and restorative practices, most recently at MAMA (Midwives and Mamas Australia) in Kensington. Over the past few years, due to family work commitments, Lauren has lived away from her family, recently in Shanghai where she gave birth to her daughter, and whilst Melbourne has been her ‘home’ for most of her life, she now resides at home in Ballarat.

Possessing a true passion for community, Lauren created a yoga and pregnancy support group for women birthing away from their home country in Shanghai. Her classes focus on building trust, connection and awareness within, and with baby, as both an anchor and inner strength that empowers, whilst nurtures, women in their transition of motherhood and change.

Having completed foundational training with Patrick Creelman, Pure Yoga Asia, Mindful Birth with Michelle Papa and Dr. Jean Byrne, Yin Yoga & Mindfulness with Sarah Owen and most recently commencing studies on the pathway to becoming a Yoga Therapist. Lauren is a Yoga teacher Mentor and Course Cordinator for Wisdom Yoga Institute in Melbourne yoga supporting teacher trainees as they find and share their light in foundational yoga studies.

Whilst juggling yoga and a corporate career in HR, you will most likely find Lauren having an adventure with her toddler; sipping on lattes and baby chinos or escaping in her latest read.
