Hey y’all and welcome! My name is Lauren Bringle and I discovered the practice of yoga in 2005, when back injuries and muscle issues forced me to endure weeks of intensive physical therapy, massages and muscle spasms with seemingly no end in sight. My doctor recommended that I try yoga, and thus my 10-year-and-counting love affair with the practice began. After my first month of practice, all the knots that once lined my spine disappeared and I was sleeping better than I had ever slept in my life. I was hooked and my feet were set on a path that guided me to greater health, happiness and opportunity than I ever imagined existed.
After years of rigorous ballet training on track to become a professional, I suffered a series of knee injuries that left my ballet career devastated and my future uncertain. Yoga stepped in and offered a wealth of healing of both mind and body. With experience using yoga to recover from personal back and knee injuries, several intensive rounds of physical therapy, a background in Pilates training and time spent as a Medical Assistant assisting with spinal procedures in a health clinic, I have a deeply personal understanding of what it means to find health through movement.
I love taking people on a journey from doubt and injury to empowerment through yoga, by enabling them to realize how much their bodies and minds are capable of. Come join me in my health-exploration!
