Meet the Teachers:
Lauren Duker, E-RYT 200
Lauren teaches yoga for every body, emphasizing the functionality and safety of each pose over rigid ideas of right form. Training dozens of teachers over the years, she loves empowering new yoga teachers to delve deep into personal practice and to teach others with honor and care. In 2011, Lauren was certified in the art of Thai Yoga Bodywork: a therapeutic practice that compassionately opens the body and balances the heart-mind.
Enraptured with the miracle of human experience, her aim is to write love and fairytales into life. She aspires to follow and share the example of boundless love set by her teachers.
Ekatmānanda Saraswatī, RYT 200, AAVAS 200
Ekatma has always been drawn to all things ancient and mysterious. He discovered hot yoga in 2006 and continued learning about yoga philosophy through www.shreemaa.org. He found nothing older and more mysterious than the soul. He continues this love affair of curiosity and wonder through the practices of yoga and permaculture.
Today he teaches jyotiṣa, yoga workshops and classes focusing on the roots of traditional yoga and postural alignment. His teachings are designed to relieve the tensions of modern-day office life while using isometrics to strengthen and balance the body back into optimal physical and emotional health.
