About Lauren Flanagan

Herbalist, Bodyworker,
& Movement Re-Education Guide 

Lauren's life experiences have woven together and inspired the creation of Rooted & Reaching Wellness:  A practice that nourishes the body and mind through Wellness Consultations, Herbal Medicine, Therapeutic Massage, Meditation, and Movement Reeducation through Yoga. Rooted & Reaching Wellness provides guidance and support for living more comfortably in one's body.


In the vast and open spaces of the Mojave Desert, Lauren's understanding of health surfaced, her intentions for life were refined, and the connection to her body was rekindled. Meditation was the first tool she discovered as she dove into the Mahayana Tradition which revealed the power of working with the mind and emotional body to support the life she wanted to create. 


She studied and practiced yoga in the Ashtanga Tradition, completed a Teacher Training in the Mysore style teaching and participated in Restorative Ashtanga Yoga Mentorship where she was fortunate to work with a variety of age ranges and ability levels. She continues to teach yoga in several spaces including alongside an Occupational Therapist at Holistic Orthopedic.    

With a deeper dedication to the medicine path, she attended Bastyr University Herbal Sciences Program. The Bachelors of Science extensive curriculum included:  Anatomy & Physiology, Organic and Bio- chemistry, Herbal Medicine Making and Formulating, Pharmacognosy and Herb Drug Interactions, Herbalism First Aid, Materia Medica, Traditional Ayurveda, and more. As student of life, Lauren is dedicated to continue learning every day. 

She practices reciprocity with the plants directly by tending to her own and others gardens. As a steward of the earth she works with bioregional and medicinal plants.
