Lauren specialises in working with adults experiencing depression (including pre and postnatal), anxiety, stress, overwhelm, chronic illness and high sensitivity.
In counselling sessions, Lauren aims to create a safe and inspiring space to explore what is going on for you. Her focus is not just on helping you to overcome the difficulties that you are facing, but also to support you in living vibrantly, meaningfully and passionately. She believes in living a life that is authentic, compassionate, mindful, wholehearted and joyful, and she carries this through into her work.

Lauren sees her role as helping you find your way in overcoming obstacles and creating the kind of life you want to lead. She won’t tell you what to do or make your decisions for you. She will listen, non-judgementally and compassionately, and support you on your journey.

iRest Yoga Nidra
Based on the ancient teachings of meditation, iRest yoga nidra is an evidence-based mind-body transformative practice that leads to psychological, physical, and spiritual healing and well-being.
The practice is integrative as it heals the various unresolved issues and traumas that are present in your body and mind, and restorative as it enables you to recognize your innate peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life.
iRest provides you with tools to help you relax deeply, release stress, increase resiliency, improve your interpersonal relationships and provide you with greater mastery and control in your life.
Lauren teaches regular iRest Yoga Nidra courses and integrates iRest Yoga Nidra into counselling and coaching sessions.
COST: $320 for a 6 week course, plus course materials (manual and six mp3 meditations recorded in class). Medicare rebate is $189.90 with a mental health care plan and a referral from your GP.

A Daily Dose of Bliss is a delightful six week course for emotion regulation. Learn simple yogic practices each day to feel calm, balanced, grounded, energised and blissful. It takes just 5 – 10 minutes each day. Daily classes are taught in the online shala by Dr Lauren Tober and her team of internationally acclaimed yoga teachers, including Deva Premal and Miten, Dave Stringer, Sharon Gannon, Dr Rick Hanson and more.
Living Your Heartfelt Desires is a self paced online course to let go of what is no longer serving you, get clear on what you want your life to be about and take clear steps to bring this into reality.
Meditation, Pure + Simple is a 6 week iRest Yoga Nidra online course, similar to the course she teaches at the Centre for Mind Body Wellness. The online format is perfect for people who don’t live locally, or who can’t commit to attending the classes on a regular basis.
