Who Am I?
Hi! I'm Lauren, and I come to Northeast LA from the San Francisco Bay Area with a background in dance and musical theater. With a BA in Dance from UC Irvine, I continued my education at The Alvin Ailey School in NYC, where I was encouraged to become a certified GYROTONIC and GYROKINESIS trainer.
I was first introduced to the GYROTONIC Method through my professional dance career, as a means of cross training, injury prevention and restoring my body from the rigorous physical and mental demands of dance. I quickly knew the GYROTONIC Method was not only essential to me as a young professional dancer, but I also knew this work would be essential to anyone from any background.
I personally enjoy the GYROTONIC method as a way to integrate both healing and fitness, and I aim to create an encouraging and attentive atmosphere while teaching. I am passionate about seeing people learn movement patterns that will help them in their daily activities, and assisting with graceful aging, pain management and freedom through movement.
When not teaching, I love getting outdoors going hiking or camping, cooking with my husband, and trying out southern California's array of taco trucks! ;)
