Meet one of our SWY teachers @hotyogil! Lauren started teaching in 2009, and since then has continued to grow as a teacher and student. She feels blessed by many teachers in her life, gaining knowledge and experience from each along the way. She is a certified Baptiste instructor, and her practice and teaching is rooted in the Baptiste Methodology. What she loves about the practice is the ability to always be a student; there is space for something new to learn each day from students & in her own practice. In 2012, Lauren and her Sister ,Kelly Carter, opened @shaktipoweryoga in Nashville. Every day she is grateful for the community and the space they have created together, and with the inspiring Shakti team. She believes yoga is about connection and love – connection to oneself and to others to create a powerful and positive impact in the world. Lauren is excited and honored to be a part of the Small World Yoga tribe. Starting September 6th, Lauren will be leading a seniors’ yoga class on Tuesday from 10-11 at the Bordeaux Branch Library. When Lauren in not practicing or teaching yoga, you can find her hiking, playing tennis, paddle boarding with @nashvillepaddle, and hanging with her family, friends, and her bulldog Hank.
