Imagine waking up in the morning, taking a deep breath, and actually looking forward to your day.

Imagine starting your day from a place of calm contentment and not living in fear of anxiety and panic.

Imagine allowing yourself to experience joy, even while also doing hard and challenging things.

Imagine yourself going to bed at night with a sense of peace, gratitude, and self-worth.

And now imagine all of these things happening within the next three weeks with a minimal time commitment.

Sound impossible? It’s not.

Learning to calm yourself is a skill, not a talent. And like every skill, it can be taught, learned, and strengthened.

Joy is your birthright. You deserve to enjoy your life without anxiety, fear, panic, and worry constantly weighing you down.

How good will it feel to wake up three weeks from now armed with the ability to access your calm whenever you need it?

How good will it feel to enjoy your life?

My name is Lauren Biniaris. I am a writer, dancer, yoga teacher and mom. I live in the Hudson Valley of New York with my husband, two, daughters, and tons of animals.

I have been teaching and practicing yoga for nearly two decades. And in all that time, I have come to recognize the single greatest thing that yoga has brought into my life and into the lives of my students: a greater sense of calm.

Some of you may be thinking that feeling calm is just not in your DNA. You may feel like an anxious mind and tense body is just your lot in life. Honestly, there have been many times when I had those same thoughts about myself. But I am here to tell you, that just isn’t true.

You are more than your anxiety.

Hear what a recent student, Phuong, had to say about the Challenge:

"Going into the 21 Day Calm Your Mind Challenge, all I knew was that some yoga was involved, and that my mind definitely needed some calming. As a mom and small business owner, (a.k.a. the secretary, manager producer, taxi driver, tutor, cook, maid, cheerleader, and coach) my life is mentally exhausting. What I discovered was a really comprehensive plan, chock full of tools to help get there. There was a daily yoga sequence that was so gentle anyone could do it, which I truly learned to appreciate. As a teacher, Lauren’s cues throughout were on point for me. She has an overarching peacefulness about her that just feels very honest and genuine. The program is aptly called a “challenge” because there is (at least for me) a real challenge in showing up for yourself consistently for 21 days, even for 20 minutes a day. Today I’m not only calmer, but also feeling stronger and more in-tune with myself. Great experience, totally worth it."

Another student, Patricia, said:

"Lauren's 21-Day Calm Your Mind Challenge has been an incredible journey for me. She is teaching me how to “pause” from stressful situations. I have recommended it to friends in a big way."

“Lauren’s approach is like a breath of fresh air. Her calm demeanor and deliberate, clear instructions create an environment that supports and nurtures my body and mind. Lauren radiates empathy, a much needed attribute in the world today and she truly cares about the wellbeing of others in her midst.” —Hayley K.

For as long as I can remember, I have dealt with anxiety. As a child I didn’t know what to call it, but I certainly felt it.

It was almost always there in the pit of my stomach, in the tightening of my chest, and in the swirling thoughts of a young mixed up brain.

My anxiety continued to grow, and it followed me into adolescence and adulthood. I felt like its victim, and I just wanted it out of my life.

I tried over and again to beat it away. But it always seemed that the harder I hit, the more stubborn my anxiety became. It was just always there, and I was terrified of it.

My anxiety felt like a personal deficiency, a defect that for some reason I had while others did not. It made me feel like a failure and a fraud.

My anxiety made me feel like I could never be a good enough parent or spouse. It made me constantly worry about my health.

It pummeled my self-esteem.

All I wanted was to feel calm and confident, but I just never seemed to get there.

When I finally got into therapy, I saw that I needed to use a different tactic than trying to beat my anxiety to death.

I needed to get to know my anxiety. I needed to understand what was beneath it, what triggered it, and what misguided function it was trying to serve in my life.

Thankfully, yoga was also there to help me with that.

My favorite part of the challenge was how your didnt have to have to bring anything to the table but yourself. Nothing fancy. Just be yourself."

—Tiffany W.

“I always left Lauren’s class feeling unburdened, lightened and determined.”

—Joele C.

For many years, I have been on my own long journey of learning how to not let anxiety run my life.

One of the things I have discovered is that there is no one single “cure” for anxiety. And that is ok! It is great in fact. Because the best way to manage anxiety and live a joyful life is not dependent on a single, fixed thing (Thank God!)

The key to not letting anxiety run your life is to have many different tools at your disposal to confront it.

All those different tools function as a sort of mosaic. Each is different, but they come together to create a single stunning image of the beauty that is your life, which is so much greater than the sum of its parts.

During my own journey, I have developed an anxiety management system for myself that I know can help others, too. It is based on very simple routines that can have a profound effect on the quality of your day and more broadly, your life.

I know from my own lived experience that this stuff works. And I know that it works for others as well. And the best part is, it is so incredibly simple.

Which is why I am beyond thrilled to be introducing...

The 21-Day Calm Your Mind Challenge:

The step-by-step path to calming your mind and body in only 20 minutes a day (even if you can't turn off your brain off to save your life!)

So how does this whole challenge thing work?

By the end of the challenge, the goal is to feel noticeably calmer throughout your day than you did on Day 1.

In this 21-day challenge, you will experience the strength of simplicity, the power of a basic routine, and more confidence in your own ability to confront anxiety and generate greater calm and joy in your life.

You will do a simple daily yoga sequence that I will guide you through. It is safe and feels great for all bodies.

You will then practice incorporating calming techniques and breathing exercises throughout your day so that you feel noticeably calmer, centered, and grounded.

And the best part? All of this will take only 20 minutes a day!

And it doesn’t matter how old or young you are, how good a shape you are in, or whatever your life situation may be. This challenge is created for all people.

If it sounds too good to be true, it isn’t.

It has worked for me, and I know that it can work for you, too.

All you have to do is show up.

“As senior yoga students, we feel that Lauren has a real strength in creating a flow of movements that are at the level of the participants of the class including adaptations for those of use with differing abilities. We have practiced under a number of instructors both live and on video, and feel Lauren has an exceptional rapport with her students.” Victoria and Bob J.

“Lauren uses exceptionally clear language, deep grounding in her body and practices, and respect for the totality of life to guide her classes and students. She is unwavering in her complete presence, clear-headedness, and support.”—Sara N.

By this point, I hope you can see that signing up for this challenge will only bring good things into your life.

Another sweet deal for signing up: you will have access to challenge materials for life. That way, you can take the benefits of this challenge with you forever and revisit course materials whenever you need.

Many courses on stress reduction or yoga intensives are cost prohibitive to all but a small percentage of people. It is a high personal priority of mine that this course be affordable, accessible, and broadly available. That is why I am pricing it at $99.

For less than $5 a day for three weeks, you can give yourself a life-changing gift to carry with you forever.

“Lauren helped me find an entry into Yoga. I have always felt I should do Yoga, but always found it stressful and hard on my body instead of the opposite. I now have arthritis to varying degrees in different parts of my body and really thought this was not for me. But after a class with Lauren, through her pace and use of the breath, I found an expanded experience of inner space.”

—Julie S.

Now you know the cost of taking the challenge.

But what about the cost of not taking it?

What is the cost of continuing to live in stress, longing for ways to calm yourself but never quite getting there?

What is the cost of other, less healthy ways of calming down? (Looking at you, red wine!)

What is the cost to your family and friends of you not being fully present and available?

If you are not worth $5 a day for three weeks, then what in the world is?

For $99 total, you get all the benefits of the challenge and lifetime access to the challenge materials.

That comes to less than $5 a day for only three weeks.

That is less than a venti latte at Starbucks.

That is less than a copy of the Sunday New York Times.

That is less than a crappy glass of wine that will give you a headache.

Don’t put your life on hold for one second longer. You deserve to start loving your life right now.

Let’s do this together.

The Next 21-Day Calm Your Mind Email Challenge Begins In....

Go through the full 21-Day Challenge, and if you are not satisfied that you got your money’s worth, I will offer a full refund.


Do I need to have done yoga before taking this course?

No. This course is designed for complete beginners to yoga. Absolutely no previous experience is required.

Is this challenge meant to be an exercise course?

No. Although this course requires some physical activity, it is not intended to be your only daily exercise. The goal of it is to increase your sense of well-being and to provide you with effective tools for calming your mind.

Do I have to give up caffeine or change my diet in this course?

No. This course does not ask you to make any dietary changes whatsoever.

If I already have a yoga practice, will I get anything out of this course?

Yes. But you will probably not be learning any new yoga poses. The daily yoga sequence is extremely simple. What you will take from the course is how to integrate the calming aspects of yoga into your daily life. If however, you are looking primarily for a great yoga workout, this is not that course.

Will this course be in conflict with my spiritual/religious beliefs?

Absolutely not. There is nothing esoteric about what this course offers. It is practical, down-to-earth, and encourages you to be whoever you are to your absolute fullest.

Is this course meant to replace other forms of mental health wellness?

No. No. No. In fact this course is definitely not meant to be your only form of taking care of your mental health. This course is meant to supplement your own mental health care. It works beautifully in tandem with whatever other types of mental health care you choose to have in your life.

“Lauren has a great sense of humour and makes every session a joy to be a part of. I always looked forward to her next class.”—Joele C.

"Lauren combines her vast knowledge of the material with a serene, welcoming leadership style to create a comfortable environment where anyone, regardless of skill level, can feel both accepted and encouraged to grow." —Laura B.

I created this challenge to give people like you and me the concrete tools for bringing more calm into our lives, so that stress and anxiety don’t end up hijacking our joy.

You are more than your anxiety.

Give yourself this gift. Let’s do this together.
