Lauren walked into her first yoga class while completing her bachelor’s degree at Grand Valley State University. What began as a simple opportunity to step away from the stresses of university life soon transformed into a journey of self-love and understanding. When she returned home from college, she found a studio to call home, delved deeper into her own personal practice, and fell deeply in love with the yoga community.
In November of 2017, Lauren completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training at Soulshine Yoga. Shortly thereafter, she found her roots and her wings, receiving her certification in both Chair Yoga and Aerial Yoga. Lauren also received training in Kids Yoga and as an assistant preschool teacher, practices with her favorite little yogis regularly.
In the spring of 2020, motivated by the challenges of practicing and teaching yoga amid a pandemic and a quickly changing world, Lauren started her own business, Hummingbird Heart Yoga LLC, where she continues to specialize in private one-on-one and small group aerial and traditional yoga experiences. Lauren also manages a vegetable and flower garden with her boyfriend to bring fresh produce to his local pizza food truck. She is extremely grateful and honored to be able to share and hold space with her students, family, friends, fellow yogis, and mentors.
