About Me

The Journey To Myself

A devoted practitioner of yoga and meditation, Lauren Amrita is a 500-hour Registered Yoga Instructor. She is certified in Anusara Inspired and Restorative Yoga and well versed in Iyengar and Ashtanga Yoga. She trained in Anusara Inspired Yoga with Lorraine Aguilar and Restorative Yoga with Jillian Pransky. Lauren is a certified Medical Qigong practice leader and trained with Dr. Roger Jahnke, O.M.D.


Lauren is currently training to become a certified Somatic Experiencing (SE) practitioner. SE techniques are effective in reducing or eliminating chronic pain and trauma-related symptoms presenting in the musculoskeletal system. She integrates the techniques she is learning into her yoga classes and 1:1 sessions.


Lauren’s classes are alignment based with a focus on breath awareness. Her love of reading and writing inspires her, and she enjoys weaving a theme throughout her classes. Lauren Amrita wrote these articles for Osho Viha Connection magazine. Learn more about Osho Viha here.

Lauren also practices Tantra, chanting, movement, breathwork, and ritual. She studies Tantra with Vasumati Hancock. Her practice cultivates presence, freedom, joyfulness and a deep connection to her true essence.  

Lauren’s vivacious personality and authentic, compassionate heart allow her to connect with students of all backgrounds and abilities.

Lauren will always be a student of the practice, and is deeply grateful for the loving wisdom all her teachers have shared with her. 

“My intention is to share the loving wisdom of yoga so that everybody can remember their true essence.”

Yoga Nidra and Sound Healing

Yoga Nidra means deep Yogic Sleep. It is a practice that allows you to come into a space of profound rest and relaxation while staying lightly awake and aware. It is the ultimate relaxation technique for releasing stress and tension held in the body. In this meditation, you will be guided through Yoga Nidra while lying down comfortably on your back. Throughout the practice, we will listen to the beautiful healing sounds of Tibetan singing bowls.


This practice will deeply nourish, replenish, and restore your body, mind, and spirit.
