Laken Badley’s first introduction to Yoga was nine years ago in Denver, CO. That’s where she met her influential teacher who shifted her practice from physical exercise to a new way of living. Inspired, Laken traveled to Rishikesh India, Yoga capital of the world, completing three months of studies. She is a 500HR RYT in Hatha, Ashtanga, also completing a separate 200HR Meditation TTC.
Before moving to Panama City, Laken was previously working for Sansara Surf & Yoga Resort. She had the opportunity to learn from teachers all over the world. Combining her knowledge through studies and travel, experiencing different teachers and styles, she has created her own style integrating Hatha, Vinyasa and Iyengar. Bringing Eastern tradition over to Latin America, combining Eastern & Western traditions of Yoga. Laken’s Classes are known to be “sneaky”, a slower pace flow, but STRONG.
Laken is a stickler on alignment and has learned how to give clear verbal instructions on how to find the proper alignment in practice. When the physical body is in proper alignment the subtle body is aligned reducing the monkey mind, stress, depression, anxiety. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced practitioner you’ll leave feeling peace and overall good in the physical body!
