Lauren Znachko teaches weekly trauma-informed Sea Change Yoga classes at Long Creek Youth Development Center, a total educational rehabilitative resource for youth within the correctional setting.

Lauren has completed 300+ hours of Yoga Alliance certified teacher training. She completed the Empowered Youth Initiative training through Off the Mat Into the World in 2009, which focused on therapeutic and trauma sensitive yoga for youth. 

Lauren has had the opportunity to teach and practice throughout the country and around the world. She has found that the language of yoga transcends differences in culture, language and personal histories. As an advocate for healing and justice, Lauren values the practice of presence and mindful movement for all bodies, regardless of ability, age, size, race, gender, sexuality or origin. She is also a Registered Maine Guide and loves to practice yoga in the woods, on mountains and in canoes.
