How This Journey Began

I remember it clear as day. I was sitting at the desk of my photography manufacturing job, practically shaking in anticipation of the clock striking noon so I could start my daily ritual: Opening my packed lunch, listening to Angel’s Prayer in my headphones & reading MindBodyGreen’s daily blog post. 

I sat in front of my computer and began to scan the article. Then I started reading every single word slowly. What was being shared on my screen at my desk in Downtown L.A. brought tears to my eyes. It felt like the author of this post knew me — like REALLY knew ME. Everything shared resonated deeply. 

“Who is this woman? Where does she teach? Probably NYC or something…” A quick Google search revealed that she was local and she was offering a yoga practice in the park that Saturday. I had only been practicing asana for a little over a year and didn’t usually go to larger classes out of fear that I wouldn’t fit in. But something in me said I had to go. I had to thank her for sharing her beautiful words – her beautiful soul.

So I showed up.

The practice was heartfelt and so sweetly orchestrated. It was like coming home to myself a little more. When the crowd cleared after class ended, I felt timid to approach her but still stepped forward. 

“Hi. I’m Brittany. Thank you so much for this class. And for the article you wrote. It really meant a lot to me.”

“It’s so nice to meet you, Brittany. I’m Lauren.”

The following week, I went back to her class and she not only remembered me, but the simple things I shared with her the week before. She saw me. Really saw me. And that’s when I started to see my true self more too. 

The article Lauren Eckstrom wrote was shared almost 10 years ago. Little did I know then that I would not only gain a magnificent teacher in my life but a very dear friend. And I am so grateful for the journey we have been on together. 

And it’s so humbling to announce that Lauren and I are hosting a Women’s Retreat in Zion together in March of 2024…and I would LOVE to share it with you!

Come see what her beautiful heart is all about. And what we have to offer as a co-creators on this special retreat.
