Lauren is the coordinator of McFetridge Wellness, as well as a yoga teacher, fitness instructor, and certified personal trainer. She gained her 200 RYT certification from Prairie Yoga in 2014, and her training emphasizes alignment and mindful movements. She turned to yoga in college out of curiosity and with a focus on fitness. Her practice flourished while in graduate school and training for half-marathons and a marathon. She gravitated toward restorative yoga to complement the strenuous running schedule. The practice of restorative yoga allowed her to truly get in touch with her physical state and taught her how to mentally slow down. After years of exclusively practicing restorative yoga, she eventually added vinyasa yoga to her practice and she continues to practice (and teach) both styles of yoga regularly.
Yoga has taught her how to turn inside when negativity surrounds her. Yoga has taught her that her voice has a right to be heard and to speak her truth. Yoga has taught her the importance of slowing down and mindfulness. Yoga has taught her how to be a happier version of herself. This is why she teaches yoga to others: in the hopes that other people can find the happiness, gratitude, self-love, and kind heartedness that she learned on her mat.
