As much as this year has brought sadness and tragedy it has also brought gifts, revelations and new ways of being in the world.
For me, I’ve learned that my heart is the guiding light to building a web of connection and community that will literally last a lifetime. I’ve learned it’s ok to let my lighter, playful side out. I’ve allowed myself to laugh more, take more emotional risks, and that, even if I fail, I grow by trying.
My practice of yoga over the years has taught me to let go of attachments, to soften when it feels hard and that I must hold both the light and the dark at the same time to be whole and human. I’ve learned to release judgement of myself and others as much as I can and that my journey is both unique to me, and at the same time holds the general human story of misfortune and blessings we all experience.
What have you learned abut yourself or life from this year and your practice of yoga?
So, it’s with nervousness and vulnerability I announce that moving forward I will be resuming my legal birth name, Lauren. Justine is an amazing alter ego that I cultivated to protect me from life events that, as a young person, I wasn’t ready or able to handle on my own.
I know it can be hard to change how you address someone you’ve known for many years, but I am excited to get to know Lauren and rediscover the innocent, light, compassionate young person I remember myself to be.
I don’t know what 2021 will bring, but I am ready for more success, more joy, more love and more fulfillment as I have been given the gift of being a conscious human being on this planet, aren’t you ready too?
With a light heart,
Lauren Justine Fuller

Happy Thanksgiving!

December 20, 2020

Wow! What an amazing year!
As I sit back and reflect on this year I have to express how incredibly grateful I am to all you, our students, teachers and colleagues who have supported us over the last 9 months. Not only with your memberships but also asking us how we are doing and checking in to see if the doors are still open.
It’s incredible that all of you made the pivot with us as we took the studio online and navigated our way to safety this year. The fun part of it is keeping in touch with you and being able to offer many different workshops and classes via Zoom.
This Thanksgiving let’s open our hearts to those in need and those who have lost loved ones. It will be a hard holiday season with so many people grieving. We know we can’t make people feel better or take away their sadness, nor would we want to as it’s part of the healing process. But, what we can do for those we know and even those we don’t is hold a space of compassion and empathy so that they can heal, so we can heal, so our country and the world can heal.
Be grateful you are here. Whatever this year has brought you, you are either stronger for it or wiser or happier but none the less you are still here to love yourself and each other.
Get centered to start your holiday.Join us for our 10th Annual Thanksgiving Yoga class!Share with your friends and family
With big gratitude,
Lauren Justine and the Fuller Yoga Family
