Lauren's Training Philosophy

Exercise and activity is the fountain of youth and a key to constant sanity and balance in the mind and body. These are proven to be the most true and natural anti-depressants.

I mix up my physical routine for my body and mind. I enjoy variation throughout the week. I include everything, depending on the season:



  • 2-to-5 classes of level 2/3 Vinyassa Flow yoga
  • Weight training my legs, shoulders and back at Equinox (my favorite gym)
  • Uphill hiking, trail running and intense outdoor stairs
  • Rogue SUP, surfboard or Arbor snowboard

I love being outdoors as much as possible and appreciate the effects yoga has on my life. Yoga brought true balance to my body, but being on my snowboard, paddle board or surf board is where I feel most at home.
