Lauren R

Lauren Marissa Rosen has a strong affinity for music, which she discovered through dance at the age of 2. Lauren's parents encouraged her at a young age to keep dance a passion, while focusing on academics to maintain a healthy life balance. Lauren continued on the suggested path and currently spends her days working in the legal field. Taking dance classes remains a top priority, which she accomplishes during her free time.

Lauren learned that while it was a fantastic balance in theory, the body was not welcoming sitting at a computer all day, followed up by dancing. Lauren's dance teachers strongly encouraged her to try yoga. After taking a few classes around town, Lauren found Hot 8 Yoga and it was a match! The incredible improvements to Lauren's well being, plus the element the music brought to Lauren's practice, allowed her to slowly deepen her understanding of the benefits of yoga.

Lauren was encouraged by her Power Yoga teacher, Casey Layne Anderson, to embark on the Hot 8 Yoga 200 hour teacher training. After completion of the 200 hour training, it made perfect sense for Lauren to become certified in Yoga Sculpt, as that's where Lauren's energy and musicality could be best utilized.

Because of yoga, Lauren's dancing has improved tremendously. Lauren noticed a dramatic increase of focus in her career and everyday life. Most importantly, yoga provided her with a deeper understanding of the importance of self care and living each day to its fullest!

Lauren currently teaches Yoga Sculpt at the Beverly Hills location on Saturdays at 5pm and Sundays at 8am. Her primary intention as a teacher is to challenge students to push beyond their comfort zone. Lauren choreographs her classes in a manner that allows students to connect to the music during their practice, which offers them the opportunity to strengthen their coordination skills during the high intensity class. You will leave Lauren's class feeling accomplished and stronger, both mentally and physically!
