About the Owner
Lauren Doyle is a registered RYT-500 HR Yoga Instructor as well as a Certified 800 HR Yoga Therapist who began her real journey of Yoga at Spirit of Yoga in Tempe over three years ago. In Dec 2017- Jan of 2018, she spent a month in India obtaining her certification in the ancient practice of Yoga Nidra as well as traveling around the central and northern parts of India's varied and beautiful landscapes. This expedition not only deepened her own personal practice of Yoga, but also expanded her understanding of the purpose of Yoga as a tool to come back to self, nurture the body from the inside out, and to let go of what is no longer serving us. Lauren views Yoga as not only a way to tone and balance the physical body, but as a way to do so with the mind and spirit as well.
During her years of study, Lauren also achieved certifications in Sacred Sound Healing, Hypnotherapy, and Life Design. Today, she utilizes her knowledge in these areas throughout her classes as well as during 1-1 appointments with clients. Lauren also teaches paint nights both at MOODRA and La Gattara Cat Cafe in Tempe, Arizona and instructs La Gattara's weekly Caturday Yoga classes as well. (As featured on TheList TV, Fox 10, and ABC15) This work has given her the opportunity to work with the Arizona Animal Welfare League in partnership with Lululemon to bring several Kitten Yoga adoption classes to the valley. Lauren is also a talented fiber artist who enjoys sharing her creations and knowledge with others. (Be sure to check out the Macrame classes at MOODRA for more on this!)
Lauren is originally from Omaha, NE and loves her beloved Nebraska Cornhuskers. She is also the proud mama to Gunther and Monroe (two cats) and Kabuki (Pomeranian). Lauren has lived in the Valley of the Sun for over 18 years but her very favorite place in Arizona is Payson or anywhere pine trees can be found.
