Lauren’s Class Calendar


Lauren is the owner, director and co-creator of Centered. She’s been practicing and teaching yoga and massage therapy for over 19 years and has offered talks on health and wellness for focus groups, the VA, Hospice, women in recovery, local hospitals and universities.  She has served on the faculty in the massage and yoga programs at Lexington Healing Arts Academy and currently teaches prenatal yoga in The Essence of Yoga advanced teacher training program and leads international yoga retreats. Her private practice focuses on massage therapy, yoga and a variety of other bodywork modalities, including craniosacral, Thai massage, and movement re-education. Lauren’s ongoing passions and practices include spending time with her family, hiking, art, yoga, meditation, breathwork, martial arts, mental health awareness and advocacy.  She particularly loves working with women and families moving through birth, life transitions, trauma and recovery as well as children and infants with sensory, digestive and developmental needs.
Lauren’s mission is to help spread the power and potential of holistic care. Her belief and practice in promoting oxytocin as a mechanism for healing is a defining characteristic of her work, life and daily self care practices.  She feels that self care is our personally prescribed “medicine” and in today’s world, taking this time each day is not selfish but rather necessary for our overall health, well-being and connection to our precious world.

There’s a culture at Centered of kindness, acceptance, and celebration of our unique self. The more we’re able to celebrate our own gifts the more we’re able to inspire others to allow their gifts to be seen. As we lift ourselves up, we are lifting each other up. We are all a work in progress: when we know better, we do better.” –Lauren
