8 Limbs is pleased to publish monthly (well, we took a few months off, sorry!) Teacher Profiles to help you to know and learn from the amazing group of 8 Limbs Yoga Teachers. This month we profile Lauren Kite, who teaches at 8 Limbs Capitol Hill and Phinney Ridge. Lauren joined 8 Limbs as a work-study in 2006 (that’s 8 years ago!) and we hope she never leaves! After doing work-study for a while Lauren was hired as a Yoga Advisor, then Capitol Hill Manager and is now in charge of all our studio managers as Operations Manager. She rocks.

What non-yoga book are you reading/did you recently read? Currently reading Thomas Mann’s Magic Mountain, just finished IQ84 by Haruki Murakami
Yoga book you recommend: That is tough question!! Currently, Insight Yoga by Sarah Powers, but the tried and true would have to be a tie between Jivamukti by Sharon Gannon/David Life & The Heart of Yoga, by TKV Desikachar
Favorite yoga practice/pose and why: Currently, I’m incredibly focused on strengthening my outer hip stabilizers, so I’m loving modified crescent lunges, Vira II, and Uttitha Swastikasana.
One secret that helps you stay healthy: I try not to say Yes too much OR No too much, and I let myself take naps whenever I need them
Currently inspired by: I’m currently inspired by all my brave friends and family that have uprooted and moved to new places to embrace the next chapter of their lives!
