Meet Your Yoga Instructor

Dazzle Africa is very pleased to partner with Lauren Ferrante of Island Flow Yoga! Let’s get to know Lauren a bit better: Lauren lives and teaches yoga in Islamorada, an island in the Florida Keys! Her teaching style is slow and intuitive. It is grounded in compassion, breathing, feeling and healing. She will tell you that her yoga practice has saved her life. Lauren believes that each and every one of us can use time to slow down, to feel, to breathe, to process, to expand, to witness ourselves with love and compassion, and to create space for more JOY.

A note from Lauren: “My hope is that when you practice with me, you feel the beauty and magic of simply being you. That you are able to witness yourself, hold space for what comes up and lovingly surrender to what is. That you are able to take your practice off the mat and out into your world, and unapologetically.”

Lauren has been teaching yoga for over a decade. She is an E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500 Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher, a Registered Yoga School, a certified Life Coach with a Masters of Science degree in Health/Physical Education and Psychology. Lauren’s love and enthusiasm for teaching yoga in stunning natural environments will ensure this safari is one you will be talking about for years to come.
