Bio: Lauren Gonzalez, M.S.Ed, RYT-200, calls herself “The Heart Teacher” because of her belief that successful art and learning happens when we open our hearts. By engaging in practices that connect us to our “humanness,” we overcome fear of expression and tap into our full potential. As an art and yoga teacher, Lauren has sought out the spaces between these two forms of coming home to oneself in an effort to promote holistic living and wellness.
