Hi, I'm Lauren Slivosky.
I’m a mover, artist, healer, listener, cat lover, spiritual explorer, student of the universe, and teacher.
....But in long
I grew up dancing and by high school I had decided I would like to pursue dance as my profession (with hopes of graduating and signing a gig with a cruise ship). With a bit of convincing by my folks, I took the college route instead and studied modern dance, composition and pedagogy in the foothills of Appalachia at Ohio University. I had already been practicing vinyasa yoga when I went to college and I always arrived back to that practice when my studies and pursuits in dance intensified.
I moved to New York in 2014 to pursue a career in modern dance, but also knew that I wanted to share what I’d been experiencing in my yoga practice, so through the recommendation of a friend I joined Sonic Yoga’s 200 hour teacher training. At the time, I thought teaching yoga asana classes would be a simple compliment to my future as a dancer, instead, it's been the driving force in my own passion and curiosity regarding consciousness, existence, purpose, spirituality, and basically what it is to be a human. Over the past few years of continued practice, study, and pursuit, sharing yoga and meditation has evolved into my full-time work, but teaching, performing, and creating dance still deeply feeds my soul!
So cut to right now...
I'm in Brooklyn teaching the things that inspire me through the means of Vinyasa Yoga classes, exploratory dance classes, and offering Thai Bodywork to a wide range of humans.
My classes are all ever-evolving and my students, teachers, experiences, dreams, fears, and ability to open my eyes have all been pivotal in my continued growth as a teacher and healer.
