Lauri Janover has “groupies” who regularly attend her Gentle Yoga class at Black Dog Yoga in Sherman Oaks. We could tell the first time we took her class because she was candidly chatting with her students and they were talking amongst themselves. Lauri is originally from Brooklyn, New York and has a bubbly, outgoing personality. To boot, it is apparent she’s a seasoned yoga teacher by the ease and confidence she exudes while teaching. Even though it’s a Gentle Yoga class – which is ideal for beginners – we kind of think all yoga classes should provide the safety, alignment cues, and attention to detail that Lauri’s does. (Her influences are a blend of Anusara, Iyengar, and Yin yoga.) Sure, we can hang in a 2/3 flow class, but there’s something really refreshing about going back to the basics in Lauri’s class.
