About Lauren

 

Lauren Christine is a Registered Yoga Alliance Teacher, Certified Reiki Master Teacher, Certified Massage Practitioner + Writer/Vocalist.

Integration through practice, the concept that we as people can come to recognize our innate wholeness, and experience more joy + ease, despite the challenging and ever changing seasons of life, is the heart of the work Lauren share through reiki, yoga + song. The broader intention of this work is to bring our cultivated love + acceptance in to our personal relationships, communities + the world at large. We are all in this together. 

When not sharing this work, Lauren can be found journeying to her family property in the Southern Sierras of CA, being goofy, tending to her garden, writing, spending lots of restorative time in nature, and singing!

SONG/CREATIVE EXPRESSION

Lauren brings her gifts as a musician in to her private session work through voice, drum and harmonium along with offering workshops exploring the sacred and healing aspects of music when shared in circle. 

Lauren has been singing since the time she could speak. As a child she studied piano, guitar and voice: singing is the instrument that stuck. In High School her choir performed at New York's Carnegie Hall after being selected to perform under the direction of Mormon Tabernacle Choir Director, Craig Jessop. As former front woman of MAMA TUMBA, a 13 piece afro-latin funk band, Lauren received the honor of working with many talented musicians who draw from a rich and diverse musical background. As a ​vocalist & songwriter Lauren combines her authentic, heartfelt lyrical sense with rich tone and old soul sensibility in her current project: LARK
