Lauren Speziale

Lauren’s passion for yoga centres around the practice of awareness, self-inquiry and interoception. It is through this ongoing practice that the relationship with the self is strengthened. Through Yin Yang yoga, Lauren helps her students to find a balance in their practice that involves work, effort and growth, with being receptive, passive and grounded, bringing more harmony into their lives.
Lauren practiced yoga through both of her pregnancies and experienced many of the benefits yoga has to offer while carrying her babies and preparing for their births. She was so grateful for yoga during these times, that it ignited her excitement to share the gift of yoga with others!

Lauren’s passion for the practice continues to grow with the study of Ayurveda, which is the art of finding harmony in all relationships, first with the self, then with others, and the universe. She encourages her students to continue their practice off the mat - to practice connection to the breath and awareness of the body and mind on our mats, to then be able to step into our roles and relationships more connected and aware, at home, work and in the community.



Lauren Speziale instructs the following:
  • Yin Yang | Hot | I
  • A popular style of practice where the first half of the class is vigorous (a level 1 flow) and the second half is passive and restorative.

  • Mom & Baby | Yoga Nest
  • This 45 minute class is intended for parents or caregivers of wee ones up to 12 months. During this class, you will gradually rebuild core strength, build healthy pelvic floor muscles, and alleviate some of the typical aches and pains that come with motherhood. You’ll spend time moving on your own, but also spend time bonding while you incorporate baby into poses. And if baby cries, we’ll set you up in a cozy pose to snuggle or feed until they’re content again.
