More about Lauren

ABOUT Lauren

Infinite possibilities exist within each body. What differentiates the person that is joyfully living his or her dream and the person who isn’t is vision and action. That’s where Lauren comes in. She helps her clients out of the self-limiting beliefs and behaviors that stifle meaningful movement and block happiness. Lauren works with each individual or group to develop self-esteem, clarity, and the courage to walk along paths of personal fulfillment.

Lauren is a writer, a life coach and a yoga instructor. She firmly believes in the mind-body connection, and in the ability for an improvement in one to benefit the other. Lauren helps her clients to develop the skills they need to make health and happiness easy in a complex world. Some of her clients like to utilize both services while working with Lauren. Others like to work with Lauren in only one context, sometimes in small groups.

Before building a career in wellness, Lauren worked as a hedge fund executive, and she maintains a soft spot for corporate clients. Lauren teaches in many corporate offices and leads one-off wellness events in both multinational organizations and in city start-ups.

Lauren regularly teaches at some of New York's most elite studios including Soho House, Equinox, and Pure Yoga. Lauren leads global retreats and workshops. She graduated with honors from Choate Rosemary Hall and Columbia University, and earned her MSW from NYU.

100 hour Mentorship Program with Lauren Taus at Pure Yoga
The Mentorship program is part of Pure Yoga's advanced 300 hour teacher training program created for yoga teachers who want to improve their teaching skills and grow professionally as teacher. This mentorship program develops 200 hour RYT's (registered yoga teachers) to become experienced and confident, helps them build a clear and precise teaching style, and grants them the ability to teach from the solid foundation of experience and knowledge.
This program is customized for you and specifically designed to range anywhere from 3 to 4 months depending on your curriculum and pace. Because this is an advanced training it is meant to be done over the course of a several months so that you can incorporate and use the information as you go, granting you time to get the most out of the training. Next to a consistent practice, which is required, some of the largest components of the program are mentored hour long meetings for your progress, independent reading and study assignments, and assisting and adjusting Lauren’s classes. For three months you are given a weekly community class at Pure Yoga, which Lauren will use for evaluation and feedback during your mentorship period. Certification is granted to those individuals who fulfill Pure Yoga's 100 hour requirements to the satisfaction of their E-RYT (experienced registered yoga teacher) mentor. The mentorship meetings and your community classes are held at Pure Yoga East. This program counts as 100 hours towards your 300 hour advanced certification through Yoga Alliance. To assure quality and one-on-one attention, Lauren only accepts a maximum of two mentorships per season. Space is limited.
