Sarah Sumner believes that yoga is a one of the greatest teachers of compassion, and crafts intelligent sequences to expand the body, heart, and mind to find greater empathy on and off the mat. By focusing on the reasons why we do the asana poses, her students surprise themselves with their willingness to dive deeper in them. She received her 200hr from Laughing Lotus, which helped her understand the importance of fluidity, joy, and intention in every practice.
After receiving her BFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Sarah incorporates her four years of breath, voice and body training into the asana practice, offering her students creative ways to tune in. She is extra sensitive to combine specific alignment cues to protect the body because she first came to yoga because of her severe case of Scoliosis.
Through strong postures and a fierce devotion to the breath, she hopes every student leaves the room stronger and more empowered.
Lauren’s two tenets of practice are Balance and Inter-connectedness. She seeks to create a safe space where her students feel safe and open to explore movements of the body and intricacies of the mind.
Her teaching style is a combination of free flowing exploration and tuning into details of the unique alignment of each body. However, for Lauren, Yoga is ultimately a pathway to uncover layers around the Heart.
