Over the past decade, she has experienced firsthand how yoga can be a vital component in balancing the everyday pressures, work stresses and activities of a busy and fulfilling life. With the dream of extending these benefits to others, Lauren completed her 200-hour yoga teaching training under Kripalu Master Teacher Jovinna Chan. She completed her 300-Hour Kripalu Teacher Certification with a special focus on Guiding Meditation for Transformational Yoga; Instructing Yoga for Special Populations; and Leading Kripalu Vinyasa, Advanced Asana and Pranayama. The daughter of Studio Director Luann Fulbright, Lauren is excited to be teaching at Dream Yoga, and enjoys bringing her love of creative languaging and expressive music to both her vinyasa flow classes for adults and children's/teen programming. She is especially delighted to teach tweens and teens, as she has had a long-held interest in working with young people. Lauren also supports the Studio on the business side as Dream’s Marketing Manager. She holds a B.A. in Psychology from Randolph-Macon Woman's College and a M.A. in Journalism and Public Affairs from American University. Lauren hopes to share with both her students and the wider Dream community how the regular practice of Kripalu Yoga, Yoga Nidra and the yogic lifestyle can help you make lasting changes, find balance and peace, pursue your calling, and build a full and beautiful life.
