Hi, I'm Lauren
Welcome to the Mama Love Teacher Training.
I am a mom of 6 and 3-year-olds (with one on the way) and longtime yoga practitioner and teacher. I have over 15 years of experience working with people in all kinds of bodies including pregnant women and current moms.
I hold a Master’s Degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise Science. My graduate research focused on stretching science and how range of motion affects power output as we age. I have a couple of handfuls of fitness certifications and courses under my belt, and currently, am pursuing a certification as a Postpartum Doula.
I created my Mama Love Yoga Channel to teach yoga to the minds and bodies of moms because I truly believe this stage of life IS different and those difference needs to be honored. This training is an extension of the things I've learned along the way.
This course expands upon what I've learned as a teacher and trainer of moms, and from my own motherhood journey. It is my goal to combine the elements together and help teachers create yoga classes that address moms as a whole person- offering love, encouragement, and empowerment through one of the most humbling experiences in life.
Currently, I work in-person and remotely, with yoga and personal training clients during their pregnancies, early postpartum recoveries, and later as they return to more challenging movement. I am also the co-creator of the Stronger Mom Collective, where we offer strength and yoga based fitness program for moms who are short on time.
