At Lotus Flow Yoga Studio we embrace the eight limbs of yoga in everything we do; valuing honesty, compassion, integrity, and standing up for our beliefs. We also deeply value silliness, fun, and not taking life too seriously. Lotus Flow Yoga values giving back and sharing knowledge. We seek to be a leader in wellness, self-care and alternative healing.We embody these values by:

Our motto is simple: Do Yoga. Be Happy.
Lauren Farenga, owner of Lotus Flow Yoga Studio, began practicing yoga at age fourteen to help heal from trauma. She continued to turn to yoga throughout her life to cope with grief, trauma and Crohn’s disease. Yoga has healed her and brought her happiness and purpose. Lauren teaches because she believes in the power of yoga and is passionate about sharing it with others. Lauren has now been teaching yoga for eight years and continues her mission to make yoga accessible to everyone so all people can enjoy the healing benefits of yoga.
Lauren is also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in MA and worked in mental health for ten years prior to opening Lotus Flow Studio. Lauren had developed Therapeutic Chakra Flow Yoga through a combination of traditional western therapy techniques and eastern therapeutic yoga techniques to create a balanced and affective approach to healing in the mind, body and heart.
Lotus Flow Yoga Studio is here because of the community of students, family and friends who came together to create this beautiful studio space by contributing art, support, skills and lots of love, for which Lauren is deeply grateful. Lotus Flow Studio is an expansion of the work Lauren has been doing as a yoga teacher, therapist and healer, and it is an extension of her own heart.
Conveniently located at the intersection of Massachusetts Ave and Lake Street in the Capitol Square neighborhood of East Arlington, the studio is accessible by car, the 77 bus, Alewife Redline T station, and the Minute Man Bike Path. Parking is available on Massachusetts Ave and side streets.
Lotus Flow Studio encourages students to use eco-friendly transportation to the studio such as biking, walking or car-pooling.
