Lauren has been teaching Yoga since certifying with the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Yoga Academy in London in 2008. She is a registered Level 2 member of Yoga Australia with teaching experience spanning almost a decade.

The therapeutic quality of hatha yoga gifted Lauren personal insight into yoga’s innate capacity to heal, energize, awaken and inspire.

Yoga classes with Lauren are nourishing, authentic, warm and accessible. She teaches with an emphasis on alignment and creative sequencing. Her classes are designed to create space, strength and inner integrity, while learning to develop a compassionate and intuitive sense of individual boundaries. Lauren's classes weave philosophy, flow & devotion and place emphasis on living in truth from the heart.

Kirsti Whitlocke is a Coffs girl who until quite recently was living in the UK. She is a classically trained singer who tread the boards in London’s West End before retraining as a high school music teacher.
She also qualified as a comprehensive Pilates instructor whilst still in England, and then completed her GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® method 
Foundation training in the UK and here in Australia.
Kirsti is really excited about sharing the Pilates and GYROTONIC®  methods here in Coffs Harbour at our studio Hara. Her approach to teaching is upbeat and she enjoys making these movements modalities accessible and fun for all.
