LAUREN J. FIELDS, YOga TEacher
Lauren participated in her first 200-hour training in 2005 at the Yandara Yoga Institute with Victor Oppenheimer in Baja, Mexico. In 2010, she completed her second 200-hour training through the Lotus Seed School. Lauren expanded her practice and completed the Bliss Paddle Yoga Teacher Training in 2015.
Feeling the need to expand her education, Lauren began her Advanced Teacher Training with Yoga Medicine and gained 25 hours in the specialty practice of Hip Immersion with Tiffany Cruikshank. Most recently, Lauren attained an additional 300 hours in advanced teacher training in Bali with Simon Borg-Olivier from Yoga Synergy.
Lauren is trained in Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar Foundations, Yoga Synergy, and Yoga Medicine. During the past 7,000+ hours of teaching individuals ranging from childhood to octogenarians, Lauren has been continually inspired to learn more about the anatomy of the body, increase her knowledge about how stress of the workplace impacts the muscles and flexibility, and teach helpful positions that will improve the overall well-being of her students. Lauren is a certified Stand-Up Paddle Board (SUP) Yoga teacher and has partnered with a well-known local outdoor company, Next Adventure, to teach SUP yoga classes in Oregon and Washington.
Lauren is proudly registered as an E-RYT 200, a Continuing Education Provider, and will soon be registered as a E-RYT 500 through Yoga Alliance, an internationally renowned professional yoga association.
