Lauren (Fuhs) Ippolito, founder and owner of Jala Hot Yoga and Fitness Studio, has always loved exercise and making healthy choices. Although having formal training, she started self teaching herself many years ago by taking countless classes. It has always been her passion and goal to start her own business. Lauren loves to teach full mind and body awareness by infusing alignment principles into her strength training and yoga sessions. She strives to help her clients find the perfect balance between fitness and nutrition, not only for the short term, but for life. Lauren's certification from ACE Fitness, her formal training at Brownings Fitness in Manhattan, a Fitness Nutrition Certification, and a 200+ hour yoga certification from Joschi Yoga Institute in Chelsea, are only a fraction of the knowledge she possesses. Her attitude and love of this field will have you loving it too.
