The same core sequence has been taught in this studio, at this address since 1985. Ownership changes, the relentless tropic sun, passing trends and a recent prominent name omission have all conspired to change us, but the core practice remains.

Come heal and grow with us!

  • Co-Director of Yoga Key

  • Certified USA Yoga Federation coach

  • former competitive gymnast and marathon runner

  • advanced knowledge of technical yoga

  • dedicated to refining the art of yoga instruction

Lauren Dean received her 500-hour certification in 2016. She is the Assistant Director at Yoga Key. A former competitive gymnast, Lauren was coached by Kelli Hill and had the opportunity to train alongside three-time Olympian Dominique Dawes.

In 2005, Lauren joined the Peace Corps in Madagascar. It was there that a fellow volunteer introduced her to yoga. As a gymnast and marathon runner, at the age of 23, Lauren had run her knees and back into the ground. Within a week of practicing yoga, her body and mind embarked upon a powerful healing journey that continues to this day.

In 2016, she left her career as an English Literature teacher and trained with Craig Villani at Raja Yoga Academy on Australia’s Gold Coast.  She serves as faculty for the Academy and currently teaches yoga full-time. In addition, she provides training and coaching for yoga athletes of all levels. She also teaches yin yoga and Yoga to the Youth.

Though Lauren’s instruction emphasizes precision, technique and alignment, her primary focus is to encourage each student to find the tools necessary to maximize their individual healing journey. Lauren loves to see students take their practice—their lives—to another level and is continually inspired by her students’ determination, resiliency and desire to learn.

Lauren offers weekly coaching sessions and private lessons. She is available to work with yogis and/or athletes in person or via Internet or Facetime.

Danny Sine is an intelligent biped who received his 500-hour certification at Bikram Yoga Teacher Training, 2008 in Acapulco, Mexico. Committed to dispensing the yoga as therapy and developing as a teacher, Danny currently serves on the faculty at Raja Yoga Academy, sharing experience, practical knowledge and expertise gleaned from years of training, seminars, workshops, and professional development. With a mission to both inspire and educate, Danny seeks to create a culture of learning at the school, thoughtfully hosting a wide range of visiting teachers and yoga champions who espouse a like-minded vision of teaching to heal.  

Danny started practicing this discipline of yoga in 1991 and chose to attend teacher training as more of a personal goal; however, mid-training, he was inspired by the call to teach. Though Danny has practiced several styles of yoga over the years, he finds himself continually returning to the Bikram-method, as it has helped him persevere through many physical and mental struggles.   

Danny believes the hot room is where you can work through anything. "It's a place where a person can go and tune out the world. For that 90 minutes, it's just you and the yoga. And the best thing about the Bikram beginner series is it's yoga for anyone off the street. If I can do it, anyone can!"  

In addition to the yoga school, Danny owns a backcountry fishing charter and manages occasional real estate transactions around Key West, FL.

frequently asked questions

Where should we park?

BIKES Lock up at one of the bike racks along the gravel driveway that wraps around the back of the building. Do not attach your bike to the posts that support the porch above the studio entrance.

SCOOTERS There’s ample space for small scooters along the fence near the back corner of the gravel driveway. (Full-sized motorbikes are best parked along Olivia and Georgia.)

CARS Park in spaces along the road off the intersection of Olivia and Georgia, behind the studio. Be careful that you are following the rules, using non-resident parking and not blocking driveways. : )

Where is the entrance to the studio?

In order to maintain a clean floor, the “front” entrance at the intersection of Truman and White is not accessible. There’s a gravel driveway that goes around the back of the building, from White to Truman. The entrance door is near the Truman side of the gravel driveway.

Hint: There’s a Yoga Key sign on the door.

How early should I arrive before class?

Glad you asked, as this is very important. Plan for at least 10 minutes to prepare for class. The studio opens 30 minutes before class and doors are locked 5 minutes before each class. Once the doors are locked, we do not open them again until the class is over. (For many reasons, this is a standard rule in yoga studios worldwide.)
