When I was pregnant, I looked forward to Lauren’s prenatal Yoga classes every week! She is an exceptional instructor with a deep understanding of the important role that Yoga can play in pregnancy. In her classes, she cultivates a feeling of community which is so important when you have a baby on the way. Her warmth and wit actually made practicing Yoga when I felt 1,000 weeks pregnant enjoyable and even comfortable. — Liz Harden
Lauren’s prenatal Yoga class was one of the best things I did during my pregnancy. It was a safe, nurturing space, where we also had a lot of fun. — Rose Byrnes
Alexandra’s enthusiasm, personal discipline, and teaching skills make a dynamic combination I’ve found nowhere else! — Trish T.
