Meet Coach Lauren!
I've been working with children for about four years now and I absolutely love it! My favorite thing about working with kids is the pure enthusiasm they have for life and learning. I love teaching them how to keep their bodies healthy and have fun at the same time. I have a background in yoga, contemporary dance and ballet. I'm so excited to teach the kids and learn from them myself!
