Diala Hamed and Lauren Cox

Diala Hamed

(E-RYT 500)

Raleigh native Diala was introduced to yoga in 2011 while earning her B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics. After a few classes, she noticed a shift in her mind and body. This shift sparked her curiosity about the philosophy of yoga and led her to complete her 200-hour yoga teacher training in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. In an immersion program, she studied the practices which ultimately help one become their most humble and content selves. In November 2018 she earned her 300-hour certification at Akhanda Yoga School in Rishikesh, India.

Lauren Cox

Using the power of the ancient wisdom of yoga to heal yourselves as a way to contribute to healing the world is at the core of all of Lauren’s teachings. She firmly believes that you can honor and care for your individual self and needs while still honoring and supporting the collective community that you create. She openly shares her love, compassion, playfulness, and joy through a holistic and balanced approach taught to her by her teacher, Himalayan Yoga Master Yogrishi Vishveketu who developed Akhanda Yoga. Akhanda means whole, indivisible, which applies not only to each individual.​​​​​​​
