In 2012, Jami returned to Dallas Yoga Center where she earned her 200 Hr RYT.

Lauren Margolies

Lauren began practicing yoga nearly 15 years ago as a way to increase flexibility, but it quickly became apparent there was much more to be found. After years of trying many different styles in several studios, she found her deepest connection with a sound-vibration based power practice. This approach connected her to the amazing gift of meditation through asana, which led her to explore other meditation forms & various workshops.

After having two children, as a working mom, the importance of her yoga practice became paramount in helping create harmony in daily life. Through teacher training at the Dallas Yoga Center, Lauren discovered new ways to connect with sound meditation and restorative yoga, which once again shifted her entire perspective and practice. A profound interest in holistic wellness has led her to study Ayurveda, pranayama, aromatherapy & more. Lauren's goal as a teacher is to compassionately guide others to find more balance and peace through yoga and meditation. She hopes everyone can experience deep connection to oneself and pure bliss through any style of practice, yin to yang, and take what they learn with them off the mats.

Kristen Parrish
Kristen started practicing yoga regularly in 2008, shortly after starting graduate school at The University of Texas. Initially yoga was just something that helped her stay physically active, but eventually it became a way for her to clear her mind, understand her body and improve her life. Kristen was drawn to the Ashtanga method because of the discipline and concentration required for the Mysore self-practice style, which has helped her realize many benefits off the mat.

She completed her 200 hour teacher training in June 2012 with no intention of teaching, but soon returned to UT to teach in the same program where she started practicing. She has been fortunate to develop her Asthanga Mysore practice with many wonderful Ashtangi’s in the Austin area, including her longtime teachers Eriko and Selena. She completed David Swenson’s 40 hour Ashtanga Primary Series Teacher Training in 2013, and has studied with Matthew Sweeney, Dena Kingsberg and Tim Miller.

Kristen is very grateful for all the benefits of her yoga practice. She has never felt better, mentally or physically than she has over the past six years, and she truly believes that yoga can change lives. She is excited and eager to share her love of the Ashtanga practice with the DYC community.
