West Hampstead, London, UK
I’m Lauren, AKA Vintage Vinyasa, a Hatha & Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher with a penchant for Vintage Band Tees and equal parts punk, silliness, camp, and love.
I love teaching Yoga. I’ve been practising since the late 90s before it was supercool and in Essex where I grew up, only accessible in a dusty old church hall. My first teacher was way into her 60’s and her flexibility and strength blew my mind, ever since I’ve been in love with Yoga and the myriad of benefits that it brings. So I got my Yoga Alliance Certification in 2012 and then British Wheel of Yoga Accreditation in 2013 and have been teaching ever since.
A former corporate Operations manager and People Developer, the philosophies of Yoga such as meditation, connection, self-awareness, self-belief, and resilience are intrinsic to my personality have aided my career and formed the foundation of my teaching.
I am all about creating a sense of community, a fun, safe, inclusive space and shared purpose within my classes, am known for empowering my clients to be bold, challenge internal negative self-criticism and accept their natural given asses…did I say asses…I meant assets!
