About Me

The Journey To Myself

A devoted practitioner of yoga and meditation, Lauren Silverstein is a 500-hour Registered Yoga Instructor.  She completed Advanced Teacher Training with Lorraine Aguilar and Restorative Yoga Therapeutic Teacher Training with Jillian Pransky.  Her practice has supported her to grow stronger, more flexible and adventurous on and off the mat. Yoga inspires her to live each moment more mindfully.  She continues to practice Ashtanga, Iyengar and Anusara Inspired yoga.

A born and bred Manhattan girl, Lauren holds her B.A. in English Literature from The University of Colorado, Boulder. Her love of reading and writing inspires her and she enjoys infusing a feeling tone (Bhavana) throughout her classes. Her classes are alignment based with a focus on breath awareness. Lauren’s vivacious personality and compassionate, authentic heart help her connect with students of all backgrounds and abilities. She is passionate about yoga, her three beautiful daughters and her Type A husband too! She loves to take long walks in nature with her adorable dog, Oliver. 

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