Meet our team

Lauren Hellekson

I started my journey with a small local Zumba studio in Ravenna back in 2015. Wanting to expand my skill set, I closed up shop and moved to Pittsburgh to surround myself with the industry and work closely with professionals in the business. Through advice, encouragement and an "eyes closed" click of a computer mouse, my thirst for healing, helping and guiding people soon brought me to India to study Yoga at Rishikesh Yog Peeth, in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand.

There I learned that it is SO much more than this "Fitness class" people rave about. Yoga is an all encompassing, spiritual lifestyle that I'm always growing, learning, and improving my personal approach and expression with.

Knowing that I needed to bring this powerful and healing practice home with me, I decided to come back to Ravenna and open up a shop that not only offered classes, but an opportunity for anyone to discover learn and experience the entire lifestyle that is a "Yoga Practice".

I'm more than excited to enrich my home town and her people.

"My personal journey with Yoga has empowered me to help you to find peace, strength, quiet, and healing through physical movement. My classes connect your body to your breath, mindfulness and meditation, and create space for self-transformation. 

I grew up with a physically active lifestyle in the northwest corner of Ohio, surrounded by the outdoors and country side, which grounded me deeply in nature. Yoga has helped me combine my love for physical wellness while staying rooted in the peace that the natural world brings to me."
