Browse through Instagram pics of Tacoma and you might just find Lauren Scolari in an impossible pose on Owen Beach.
Impressed by this local “yogini” and body artist, we asked Lauren to head downtown to collaborate on images using some of our city’s iconic landmarks as a backdrop.
Lauren transplanted to Tacoma from Texas five years ago, at which point she hadn’t yet even begun practicing yoga.
Looking to recover both physically and mentally from an unplanned c-section, she struck her first Asana pose four years ago and hasn’t stopped since. Lauren has not only amassed an Instagram following of over 15,000 fans, but started her own business as a personal trainer.
Here’s Chris’ video take on the shoot:
And a few of Senad’s excellent photos:
