Rexx is known for his clarity of instruction, his attention to an individual’s needs, and his emphasis on freedom through disciplined practice. His classes are sequenced based upon the needs of the students and draw heavily from an understanding of the principles of movement and progression. Through concentration on alignment within the postures, free breathing and directed gaze, the practices of yoga can be gateways to greater awareness which then seeps into other areas of one’s life.

This is not a hot yoga class. The studio temperature will be adjusted depending on outside weather conditions to suit the comfort level of students and to optimize the benefits of the practice. Usually, the temperature will range between 76 degrees and 80 degrees, with the maximum being the exception rather than the rule.
This 75-minute class is intended for the regular yoga practitioner, one who has a basic understanding of asana postures. Students can expect a challenging class that builds heat strength, stamina, and flexibility while exploring intermediate poses. Through Lauren’s nurturing and lighthearted teaching style the postures will feel more accessible and less intimidating.
