You know that mediation can bring you back to a place where you’re more effective, you’re just pulled in so many directions.

Bliss Into Meditation: Spinal Release Yoga Therapy

The simple, yet profound postures directly decompress the five segments of your vertebral column: tailbone, sacrum, psoas, rib cage and cervical. As you release spinal tension, you settle your mind, and problematic mental and emotional patterns mapped in the subtle body begin to resolve. 

Individual attention, meticulous alignment, hands-on adjustments, and supportive props ensure that the process is effective and personalized. The space is held in a nurturing, grounded way — with an emphasis on undoing, turning within and letting go.

This is deeply healing and will make your meditation practice much more blissful and enjoyable.

For the past two years I have lived with chronic pain brought on by daily migraines. Conventional western medicine has not worked. I decided try alternative forms of healing. I received a referral to Lauren and took her class. Once in her class I experienced the calm, healing affect she has and knew this was for me.

Lauren is passionate, caring and thoughtful. A true healer and yogi. Her wisdom shines through as she listens, thinks and adjusts the work to meet my needs. The addition of meditation to the yoga therapy has been a bonus and has deepened my healing.

After working with Lauren my migraines have been reduced in frequency and intensity. For the first time in two years I no longer take medication on a daily or even weekly basis. I feel like I have been given a new lease on life.

I whole heartedly recommend Lauren.
— John E., Mill Valley, CA
I had taken a couple of Lauren’s group classes in yoga therapy and was instantly aware of how the subtle positioning and movements helped my lower back and hips feel so much better. I started to have some chronic pain in my leg, almost a sciatica feeling, and it became clear that yoga and massage were just not enough to keep it from creeping back. I started to see Lauren privately and she was very thorough on her intake questions and seemed to know exactly what the problem was. After the very first session I felt as though my body had been ever so gently realigned and it was quite honestly life changing for me not to feel that tearing sensation in my leg . The sessions are really so relaxing, almost like a cozy nap, and Lauren’s guidance with her calm and nurturing voice make the experience wonderful.
I highly recommend Lauren, she is very gifted.
— Diane B, Sausalito, CA
In the past, I was in lots of pain that I’d try to push through just to get everything done.

Since learning to meditate with Lauren, I have a place to heal,, so instead of (unsuccessfully) pushing through the pain, now I’ll stop and sit still.

Overall, it’s healed the pain I’ve been having and I’ve been able to manage my anxiety without medication.

I’ve done yoga all over the world, literally, and had the pleasure of being taught by Lauren in Cambodia. I was super impressed with her classes and her approach - she not only made us feel very special and loved, but rejuvenated.

I recommend this wonderful, caring, spiritual and very dedicated individual. She will help you no matter what your particular journey.
— Fiona E., Australia
Highly recommend! Lauren has extensive experience dealing with patiences with chronic pain, and she takes time understanding your situation and limitations. Her sessions are calming, meditative, and eye-opening. I came to Lauren after experiencing severe neck pain, and had seen chiropractors and physical therapists. I was surprised with how helpful the yoga therapy session was - Lauren offered new stretches and exercises that I hadn’t done before. Will definitely be doing more sessions.
— Adam Z, San Francisco, CA
I’ve known Lauren for three years and sat beside her as a friend. I’ve witnessed her caring depth of healing powers as a student over that time as well. I recently recommended her to someone very close to me who suffers from Osteoporosis. Lauren has specialized training and healing modalities for Osteoporosis. She is a blessing to others and I recommend her from my heart to those in search of healing.
— Dana L, San Francisco, CA
Lauren is a true gem! She is a wealth of knowledge and her passion shines through. I send anyone dealing with pain, trauma or high amounts of anxiety to Lauren.

I used to struggle with a pain deep in my hip. With a very simple but powerful technique, Lauren facilitated a full release of tension.

She also lead a retreat on my property and offered simple ways for every kind of person to access tension relief.

Her own meditation experience is evident in the wisdom of her words as she guides meditators on an inward journey.

Highly recommended from a picky student!

Yoga therapy with Lauren has been wonderful! Since working with her, I feel so much more openness and range of motion in my hips, pelvis and lower back. She has a helped me unravel long-term tension patterns in the hips, pelvis and lower back that in the past could quickly and easily flare-up into debilitating pain. She is very knowledgeable and has a calming healing nature that puts you at ease and allows your body to let go of pain and tension. The work is very subtle and gentle, but that doesn’t mean it’s not incredibly powerful. Highly recommended!
— Tim A, acupuncturist , CA
Now I don’t have to wait another 10 years to be happy!

I’m more confident than ever that I’m on the right path since working with Lauren. I feel undefined by my past.

My faith in meditation and my eagerness for knowledge has skyrocketed. Negativity comes at me on a daily, but now it’s different.
— Andrew B, Turlock, CA
Lauren is so amazing to work with! I’d highly recommend her for yoga therapy & meditation. She has so much knowledge in this field and cares about her clients deeply.
— Daniel L, Los Angeles, CA
Lauren has a beautiful, calming aura about her that instantly makes you feel calm and grounded. She has dedicated her life to the studies of the healing arts - psychology, ancient eastern philosophy, yoga therapy, and meditation - and her dedication and passion show through her work. She is a superb listener, and sometimes that’s a powerful tool for healing. When I tell her about my pains and issues, she holds the space with compassion and without judgement. She asks well thought-out questions to help us figure out root causes of my aches and pains. Her adjustments in yoga therapy are gentle but grounding - great for those in pain. She always finishes in a sweet guided relaxation that just takes me out to the zone!

I highly recommend Lauren if you are experiencing chronic pain - physical or emotional - as she is definitely a gifted healer and one you don’t want to miss out on!
— Elaine O., San Francisco, CA
Lauren is honest, compassionate, empathetic, supportive and loving. In her presence, I want to up, understand and grow.

She offers valuable knowledge and skills in a way that I could get from the very beginning.
— Andrew B, Turlock, CA
‘ve been working closely with Lauren for a few months already and cannot recommend her more for pain management. She genuinely cares about you and helps her clients effectively using yoga and meditation therapy.
— Steve L., Los Angeles, CA
