Lauren Banister, Program Manager

Always a lover of movement, Lauren fell in love with yoga's quiet strength and fierce grace in a high school dance class. Many years later, her practice has grown deep roots that nurture and support her whole life. Lauren completed her IAYT Yoga Therapy certification with Niroga in 2018. Currently, she manages programs at a variety of schools and hospitals across the East Bay.

Lauren believes that building community through mindfulness has the power to create positive social change, as practitioners take what they learn out into the world beyond. Additionally, she loves dancing, cooking, hiking, travel, and social justice.
