Anxiety is the absolute worst.

It gets in the way of everything.

It makes us terrified of the tiniest things (not to mention the huge ones).

It makes us angry and reactive.

It pummels our self-confidence, and makes us lose trust in our minds and bodies.

Worst of all, anxiety steals our joy and keeps us from enjoying our own lives.

For years, I was a slave to my own anxiety.

I was afraid of it.

I gave it complete power over me, while I took a backseat, missing out on the fullness of my own life.

But not anymore.

And you shouldn’t either.

Each and every one of us deserves to enjoy our lives without anxiety, fear, and worry constantly weighing us down.

We are here to LIVE.

Joy is our birthright.

Take just a second and imagine:

Waking up in the morning and actually looking forward to your day insteading of dreading the to-do-lists, the work commitments, the child drop-offs and pick-ups.

And then imagine moving through your day with a sense of calm and contentment rather than fear, dread, anger, and worry.

And then finally, imagine going to bed at night with a heightened sense of peace, gratitude, and self-worth rather than anticipation of another sleepness night only to repeat everything all over again the next day.

And now picture all this happening within the next three weeks with only a minimal time and financial commitment.

Does that all sound impossible?

I’m here to tell you, it’s not.

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

That is exactly what my 21-Day Calm Your Mind Challenge is all about.

The 21-Day Calm Your Mind Challenge is a bulletproof method for living a calmer and more joyful life so that you are no longer held hostage by stress and anxiety.

I created it because I needed it myself.

I have been where you are, and I know how hard it is.

But before I go there, let me tell you a little bit about myself.

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.

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

—Joele C.

“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.

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.

“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 my swirling thoughts.

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.

“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.

One of the things I have discovered on my journey to wellness 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 has been successful in helping many others, as well. It is based on very simple routines that can have a profound effect on the quality of your day and more broadly, your life.

And the best part is, it is so incredibly simple.

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

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

"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."

—Patricia C.

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.

“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.

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

It has worked for me, and many others.

I know that it can work for you, too.

All you have to do is show up.

"My favorite part of the challenge was how your didn't have to have to bring anything to the table but yourself. Nothing fancy. Just be yourself."

—Tiffany W.

"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."

—Phuong S.

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 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.

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.
