Meet Lauren Robinson of Led by Love Lauren in North Park

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren Robinson.

Lauren, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
It all started the moment my hand started shaking, as I went to take yet another antibiotic, to cure my dis-ease that was created by antibiotics. CIPRO specifically.

I absolutely had no idea at that moment, the moment where I chose to put the pill down, is the moment that would radically shift my life forever. An inner-knowing, coupled with the desperate desire for another pathway for healing.

I fought Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO – PSA often root of IBS!) tooth and nail for 3.5 years, quietly, trying to hold my day job as a proposal manager (not stressful). I became obsessed with healing myself because, frankly, I had to. I chaturanga-ed oceans of tears onto my yoga mat, I immersed myself deep into yoga retreats and training with Shiva Rea read countless books and listened to seminars about the gut microbiome, as well as foods & herbs that heal.

I dove DEEP and I am immensely grateful for the health and vitality in my life today.

Since I don’t know where I would be today without these modalities, that literally helped save my life. It is my dharma to share my story, knowledge, and gifts that came from that experience with the world – that’s how Led by Love Lauren was born.

It is my hopes someone seeking healing finds refuge and community on Led by Love Wellness Retreats. Where self-love inspires self-care through practices of Prana Vinyasa yoga, essential oils support, clean eating & living classes, as well as transformative dance.

It is my hope that that bloated woman, feeling “skinny fat”, dealing with acne, moodiness and digestive stuff find peace of mind knowing she is not alone, and that there are natural gut health solutions that work.

That’s what I’m all about – that’s why I am Led by Love.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I’m not sure smooth roads exist.

Being a soul-based entrepreneur requires a fierce dedication to personal development. And to self-care along the way so that you don’t burn out. I can’t be of service to others if I am not taking care of myself.

One of my biggest struggles has been to trust in the process… my father likes to remind me that you can only eat an elephant one bite at a time.

Please tell us about Led by Love Lauren.
I specialize in heart-centered service, offering Led by Love Retreats & Gut Cleanses

At Led by Love Yoga & Wellness Retreats, we curate retreat spaces that help you feel like home.

{Or perhaps the way you wish your home felt all the time… clean, diffuser running with a constant supply of coffee that someone else has lovingly brewed while you sip on it listening to Leon Bridges with your feet up}.

On retreat, you’ll invite in self-LOVE as you enjoy self-care practices and education, such as:
*Prana Vinyasa Yoga – breath initiated movement
*Led by Love Gut Class – gut health, learning the key to vitality
*Roll. Reiki. Relax – learn self-massage with therapy balls
*Yoga Trance Dance – yoga that turns into healing intuitive movement! Yes!
*Detox Baths – Essential oils, Epsom salts & flowers
*Circles & Ceremonies – community & cacao

It never fails that there is this instant community bond that happens, it’s magic, pretty special, really. Lots of heart involved. That is what I’m most proud of. The connections made. The subtle shifts in the day to days of people’s lives post-retreat – knowing you always have a tribe to call on.

With the Led by Love 30 Day Gut Cleanses – its the same idea but virtual – a heart-centered, safe container for community and support as we collectively invite healthy habits into our life & “upgrade” our microbiome & vitality through activating, resetting, and renewing the gut.

If anyone out there is dealing with bloating, IBS, acne or feeling “skinny fat” – please, please know that you don’t have to live that like that and there are natural solutions that work. I feel you!

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
That’s a hard question for me because life doesn’t really happen like that, does it? It’s already past… which led me to here, now. I’m pretty happy now and it’s only getting better so I can’t say what I would have done differently. You can get into a weird headspace playing the “what if” game.

… but really there have been A LOT of lessons.

I share those lessons with my Led by Love Tribe (my amazing team that I mentor on helping others live holistically + creating location-independent careers via residual income alongside other powerful teachers, healers, humans).

If your heart skipped a little beat when you read holistic + location independent then drop me a line, we are looking to grow our team. 🙂

With LOVE,
