Hi, 

I'm Lauren, founder of The Way Home. I am a Somatic Yoga Teacher, devoted to living an authentic, open-hearted life, deeply connected to the wisdom of my body.

I value freedom through authentic expression, creating a sense of safety within & trusting the natural cycles of our body. I believe our bodies are the gateway to wholeness, bringing healing on both an individual and collective level.

I started practicing yoga over a decade ago, initially like many others to manage stress & anxiety. As a highly sensitive being, I experienced the world as an overwhelming, often unsafe place and I was in deep need of support for my tender nervous system. Slowly my yoga practice became my safe haven. After struggling with my mental health for what seemed like forever, I had finally found my path to healing: my body.

 

Years of living in dissociation had made my body an unfamiliar place. Any emotion or strong sensation quickly became overwhelming, and as a HSP, those are a daily reality. Through the somatic practices of slowing down & softening, I started healing the trauma that my body had been holding for years. Body-based therapy, yin yoga & somatic healing were necessary ingredients for me to find safety within myself.

I created The Way Home as a soft landing place for other sensitives who are looking for nourishment & community.
