Last week I was honored to host a ‘Movement Medicine’ private event with goop’s Body Whisper, body alignment expert and best-selling author Lauren Roxburgh. Lauren came to my home in Bel Air, Los Angeles where she shared her knowledge with 30 of my Glow Girl friends on the importance of rolling out your fascia, body alignment and the mind-body connection. Following a short educational talk, we all had the opportunity to experience one of Lauren’s intro to foam rolling classes! Lauren is a gifted educator and teacher who has transformed the lives and bodies of Hollywood’s A-listers with her overall holistic approach to wellness! A portion of the proceeds from the event was donated to the Hirshberg Foundation, a charity that is close to my heart. Read on for more details on this magical day!
You can experience Lo’s magic by signing up for her new virtual Aligned Life Studio where she is offering an online library of classes. Also check out her two books including the best-selling Taller, Slimmer, Younger and her newest, The Power Source. If you purchase Lauren’s new book - The Power Source now, you will also receive one month free to Lauren's online Aligned Life studio subscription.

Starting with an introduction from Corc Yoga about the benefits of practicing on a cork mat, to an educational talk from Lauren and straight into the hands-on 45-minute foam rolling class, we were reminded of the importance of maintaining our body in all aspects of life.
Named the “Body Alignment Pro” by Vogue, Lauren discovered the power of ‘fascia’, or structural integration, which is a healing system that focuses on the way the human body deals with gravity and stress by focusing on the alignment of the body. When we are busy or stressed, the fascia stores toxins that negatively impact our health (such as acute back pain, anxiety, and poor posture).

My friends and I were so excited to learn about the benefits of foam rolling fascia and how it can help with flushing out toxins, connective-tissue muscle disorders, and inflammation. Other perks of foam rolling include elongation of muscles, and a deep release of tension. Yes please!
