Always a student first, Lauren is presently pursuing her PHD in Trauma. 
She has also completed training and workshops in Ashtanga, Yin, Restorative, Bhakti and Alignment Yoga. She has studied yoga and ayurveda with top instructors such as : Power Yoga with Bryan Kest, Deconstruct to Reconstruct with Alexandria Crow, Sequencing with Jason Crandell, Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy, and Yoga Nidra with Indu Aurora, Yoga Nidra with Master Yogi Charu (Bihar School of Yoga Lineage), Kundalini Yoga as Taught By Yogi Bhajan with HarDarshan Kaur Khalsa and Harbhajan Singh Khalsa, Veda Vinyasa with Allison Dennis, and 74 hours of Training in Ayurvedic Bodywork with Richard Masla and Chaya Sharon Heller. Lauren has seen the impact yoga has made on her life physically, spiritually and mentally, and only wishes she had discovered it when she played competitive golf. Her style of teaching involves integrating yogic and self improvement tools along with self-care Ayurvedic practices into yoga practice so that one is not only learning yoga, but also learning effective tools that they can utilize in their everyday life. Her style of teaching involves fostering a positive environment where her students are encouraged to look within themselves, find their strengths, and build on them. She resides in Kernersville, NC with her husband of 27-years, Eugene Blount, and their two dogs (Jackson “Buddy” and Bhakti Bala).
