Workshop Details

How many times have you thought about improving your self-care routine but found yourself unsure of where to start or intimidated by the process altogether? Psychologists define self-care as any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional and physical health. Although this may seem like a simple concept in theory, it is often overlooked due to increasing demands on our time and energy. Self-care is the key to improving our mood, reducing anxiety and improving our relationships with others and ourselves.

NAMASWEAT is both a class and an ideology: finding a way to strike a balance between hard work and self-care that feels authentic and enjoyable. The workshop itself is a combination of yoga and functional strength training exercises set to high-energy music that will help alleviate insecurities and increase interpersonal connection. Lauren’s success as a fitness professional is rooted in vulnerability and openness. Her coaching style is focused on taking the intimidation factor out of self-care and creates an environment for collective consciousness and connection.

Please bring a journal and pen with you.
