Hi! My name is Lauren Aimée and I am a Yoga teacher and dance artist based in Bedfordshire, UK. I have a passion for free movement, which began when I was dancer at university. Whilst studying, I completed my Yoga Teacher Training in 2017 to investigate how I can unite the fluidity and expressivity of dance, with the mindful awareness of Yoga. I progressed on to achieve an MA in Dance, Performance & Choreography where I was able to explore these ideas more creatively.
Nowadays, I continue my movement research, but whilst also making it accessible for everyone. My classes are open to ALL. Every shape, age, race, gender. Everyone is welcome and I strive to provide an inclusive environment.
I’m an avid learner and always look to expand my Yoga offerings, having now qualified in children, teen and more recently Yin yoga, whilst continuing to bring in my dance experience to make my classes unique and creative, resulting in classes and workshops of my own design; Embodied Flow & Yogance Playshops.
I love to experiment within the realms of moving unconsciously, improvisation using the senses and thinking with the body. In a typical class, you will be guided to listen to your body, listen to the internal sensations and allow them to manifest in movement. Learning to let go of what that movement might look like but observing how it feels.
I’m also a bit of an anatomy nerd! We are all built differently, with different proportions and orientations, therefore my teaching takes a functional anatomical approach, focusing less on the ‘aesthetics’. And despite coming from a dance and performance background, there is no need to ‘perform’ in one of my classes, you don’t need to be a specific size or shape to begin your practice, I encourage you to observe your body and all the wonderful things it can do.
Have I convinced you enough yet to join a class? No? Maybe check out the classes page to find one that suits you! x
