Get Stacked

9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join Lauren to help you understand the role of your shoulders! Your inversions will become safe supported and attainable. Shoulders are the one of the keys to Inversions. They are the base and your foundation.

Inversions are a great part of a balanced practice, but they are also feared by many. With Lauren’s expertise you will be able to practice these poses confidently and safely in your practice.

Out of Sight

2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Normally when you close your eyes, you use your facial muscles to keep them shut. Using a light Indian head wrap around your eyes helps to not only relax the eyes but also to enhance the other senses. It’s a way to get deeply into your practice without any outside distractions. This will be mostly a restorative practice. Join Lauren for this sense-ational way of moving into the practice!

Monthly 3 Hour Intensives

The first Saturday of each month I will be teaching a 3 hour practice. This is a great time to work on some challenging poses by spending more time warming up to them and finding different and interesting ways to approach your practice. We will spend some time doing Pranayama, Meditation and extra long Savasanas. Each class will have a theme; Yin/Yang/Restorative, Twisting, Inversions, Arm balancing, Balance poses, Backbends, and more.

Contact the studio Island Wave Yoga to register  3 hour Intensive

Themes for 2016:

January :    Savasana

February:   Developing a home practice











Themes may change, so check the web site to make sure.

2016  Yoga Retreat 


Private sessions and semi private, groups, parties, special events, conferences

I am available for private yoga classes or any special functions, parties, or  groups, conferences and just one to one specialize yoga for you personally.

If you have a special needs or an injury that makes it difficult to attend class, or if you travel or just want to practice on your own at home I can create a practice just for you.

Teacher Training Mentorship

There are many teacher training programs these days, and many are away from home. How to you transition from being a student to being a teacher? Do you have questions, or concerns? Do you need to observe some more classes? Would you like to assist in classes?

We can work out a program to help you become a strong well rounded teacher.  Contact me for details.

Traveling Yogi’s and Yogini’s Trading Places

Every year and sometimes twice a year I go to Northern California Bay Area to teach classes for awhile. I would love to have someone come here to the Myrtle Beach area and take over my classes here. I have spent the past few years building up these classes and would love a great teacher to continue to keep the students and grow the practice as well. 

If you have any interest in coming to this area, perhaps to check out relocating, visiting family, or for vacation please contact me. I would love to share this thriving community with you.

I’ve been teaching since 1994 and ran a yoga studio for 10 years. I’m Iyengar based but fuse in many different styles. Contact me for references.


These are some of my past workshops:

Yoga for Tight Men, Yin Yoga, The Dogs: upward and downward, Inversions: Handstand, Headstand and Shoulder Stand, Head Wrap Restorative, Yoga Movement, Opening the heart with Backbends, Developing a Home Practice, and the usual Shoulders, Back, and Hips. Also very popular are my 3 hour Intensives.

If you are interested in any of these workshops let me know.
