Working in the field of healthcare for over 13 years, Lauren witnessed the impact stress and disconnection from self can have on overall health. Through her own story of personal growth, going through a divorce and becoming a single mother of two, Lauren embarked on a journey of self discovery. Her longing to live a more joyous and fulfilled life led her to Ayurveda. “I always had a strong desire to learn, apply and share ways of natural living to bring in more peace and balance,” says Lauren. Following her heart, Lauren enrolled in school for Ayurveda. As a 2022 graduate from Shakti School, Lauren is excited to share the wisdom of Ayurveda and how it has led her to achieve a deeper level of self-awareness, self-trust and health.
Knowing Ayurveda is part of a higher calling, Lauren continues to invest her studies in Ayurveda and is presently a student of the next level of Shakti School and is currently leading workshops and wellness retreats all over Northeast Ohio.
"The Shakti School’s mission is to uplift and nurture feminine-form movement and healing arts, and the rise of women stepping into their spiritual and creative authority. "
Ayurveda translates to the "knowledge of life". Originating in India and still widely practiced there, Ayurveda is the oldest living form of medicine in the world. Many of the modern day research in areas of circadian medicine, the gut brain connection, ashwagandha, and turmeric etc. have their origins in Ayurveda. Many of us may struggle with stress, low energy, poor sleep, anxiety, depression or digestive issues on a daily basis. Ayurveda can help! Ayurveda believes that in order to achieve health and balance we must first gain awareness of ourselves and our life.
Ayurveda is a nature-based system of healing that teaches us how to live in harmony with the rhythms and cycles within our environment and ourselves. Ayurveda addresses all aspects of healing and wellbeing for the body and mind such as nutrition, sleep, how we use our energy, movement, and daily self-care practices. Our bodies need for food, sleep and exercise change with each season. When we adapt our diet and lifestyle to honor each season and align our daily routines with our internal clocks, we prime our mind/body to achieve health and balance all 365 days of the year.
Different from Western medicine, Ayurveda believes in prevention and offers an individualized approach to health. There is no one size fits all approach. Understanding your Ayurvedic mind-body type, known as a "dosha", reveals a wealth of information about your tendencies, strengths, challenges, and predispositions to certain conditions. According to Ayurveda, when we don't live in alignment with our dosha, we can become unbalanced which can lead to poor health. Uncovering your unique dosha provides you with a road map to achieving a life of peace, balance and health that is unique to you.
