Lauren Verona

Owner Zenko Yoga ׀ Speaker ׀ Trainer

Lauren’s energy and enthusiasm for life is contagious and she has a unique talent for helping others knock down the barriers that are holding them back. Over the past ten years Lauren has guided thousands of people to connect with their true sense of purpose so that they can become the best version of themselves.

“What I’ve found is that the more authentic I am in sharing my own journey, the more my students relax and ease into their practice. It’s as though my vulnerability gives them permission to not have to strive to
be perfect and to feel okay with who they truly are.”

Lauren discovered yoga whilst she was running a full time PR company in Melbourne and within months of completing her teacher training, was teaching full time. As an award-winning business woman, she knows the demands and challenges of creating a successful business and loves helping others gain self-mastery and a contemplative state of mind. As a mother of two, she also understands life’s challenges of finding time for ourselves and is passionate about assisting others with finding that balance.

The health benefits yoga and meditation are well documented - from increasing strength and flexibility to improving concentration and reducing stress and anxiety. Lauren credits her strength and tenacity to the time she has spent on the yoga mat, not only teaching, but sitting quietly and searching within, to find her inner self.

“The more you practice, the stronger you get. Your mind becomes flexible, as well as your body and eventually you find your flow effortlessly and that infiltrates into all aspects of your life. This is when you just know you can’t live without yoga. It gives you the tools and techniques to breathe and remain calm through life. That’s the magic of Yoga.”
