Kelchris Media logo

In 2007, veteran television producers Steve Barry and Joe Braswell founded Kelchris as a full service production company, specializing in creating television-quality web content for consumer brands with interactive agencies. After successful campaigns with clients like Whole Foods, Café Press and Perricone MD, in 2009, Kelchris transitioned back into television, consulting on a wide range of shows in development at various networks including E!, MTV, VH1 and ESPN. Today, Kelchris is a fully diversified production company with a specialization in transmedia storytelling. In the past few years they were hired as a company to launch ‘Mancave,’ a talk show for BET along with Truly Original and Steve Harvey’s East 112th Street Productions. They also worked on the relaunch of ‘YO! MTV RAPS,’ for MTV and were the Executive Producers/Showrunners along with Purveyors Of Pop for E! talk series, ‘Ladygang.’ Currently, Kelchris is working with comedian Lil Rel Howery as Executive Producer/Showrunners of the NBC game show ‘Small Fortune,’ debuting in 2021.

I’m Lauren, I’m 200-hour Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher, with over 10 years of personal practice. In February of 2020 (just before the world changed), I completed my yoga teacher training in Ubud, Bali, Island of the Gods, with Radiantly Alive. I view yoga as an empowering and sacred path to healing the Whole Self. Yoga is so much more than the Westernized “yoga fitness” narrative we are fed—traditional yoga philosophy teaches that yoga is a path to freedom from suffering.

When we release tension, compression, stiffness and pain in the body, we consciously create space for joy, freedom, ease and peace to take its place. When we align our bodies in yoga asana, we align to our highest and purest dharma or soul’s purpose. When we create shapes with our bodies beyond the “regular” postures we hold in our day-to-day lives, we send a signal to our bodies on a cellular level that we are FREE.

My yoga practice can have profound and lasting impact on our lives—believe me, it changes the whole game, if you allow it to. My goal as a yoga teacher is to give you the tools to explore and release tension in the body so that we may live more freely and joyfully. We all have the power to heal ourselves—in fact, Ayurveda teaches that we alone have the power to heal ourselves. May this practice allow you to move through discomfort, fear, and turmoil with an unshakable connection to the Whole Self—complete, confident, and candescent.

Noir Lux Candles logo
Colina Bruce launched Noir Lux Candle Co. during the height of the COVID pandemic in September 2020 in Seattle, WA. Noir Lux was born a labor of love, but slowly and surely grew into a small business and household staple. Noir Lux is rooted in self-care, good vibes, and nostalgia, and is a black-owned, woman-owned business. Each item is handcrafted with love, care and intention in small batches. Colina has worked in the education sector for over 15 years. It has been her life’s work to advance equity and excellence for ALL scholars and families, specifically through finding ways to center scholar and family voice. Additionally, she has been invested in exploring ways to celebrate culture and build community. “I am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Voices Beyond Assault, an organization dedicated to centering the voices and healing of survivors of assault and abuse. Candles are amazing vessels, not only for aroma, but for self-care healing, and reflection; all the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle. My greatest hope is that every time you light this candle, you will remember that you are the light!”
