ABOUT LAUREN HOWARD-TRIPP
Lauren Howard-Tripp is a Yoga and Meditation instructor as well as an Art Specialist Teacher in Melbourne. She has over 8 years of teaching experience over several continents. Throughout her adventures she recognized a desire in herself and others to create and connect but noticed that this was often blocked mostly by fear or self doubt. She decided to take FEAR in the palm of her hands and kiss it hard. To her, the practice of Yoga and the experience of creating (Art) are best when mixed together in one big flowing delicious artsy mess. She sees the union of these modalities as a gateway to explore boundaries and reconnect with ourselves. We find presence in process, we become the silent observer.
Her vision of uniting the Arts and Yoga led her to open her own business NamARTste which brings these elements together in unique events and workshops throughout Melbourne. NamARTste provides experiences which nurture and nourish the whole person, mind, body and spirit inviting participants to journey inward. To ask the questions which lead to more questions, to inspire and enrich thinking, to empower, learn, grow, evolve, awaken.
A very relaxing and inspiring class. Lauren was lovely. I would recommend to others.
