I am a gypsy at heart.
I am healing and am a healer.
I want to offer you healing.
I want to heal the world.
All in that order.
Sometimes, I get way too complicated, creating messes that are great lessons. You can nod your head and laugh with me. I like to laugh.
With time and experience, I’ve harmonized the gifts of East and West for a comprehensive system of healing, growth and transformation. In releasing the boundaries of my mixed cultural conditioning, in learning to step into my own freedom, my simple answer is kindness. In kindness, there is forgiveness. There is nothing to prove, just a world to explore. Kindness lets me stop. Kindness reminds me to breathe. Kindness says, “I am sorry.” without guilt, shame or blame. Kindness knows I am enough. Kindness paves the way for “a different kind of happy.”

Through yoga, we come to understand that we are all in this life together. Sometimes it’s easy to forget this simple lesson – things get scary and we want to run away. But with practice we keep coming back to the breath and to our mat. We learn that the moment is a sanctuary in which we can live life free from regrets of the past and free from anxieties about the future.
“Rooted in surrender, I let go of any need to be in control. Anchored in the divine, I let go of anything that no longer serves me. I have arrive and I am home.

POY was a large part of her life, and the students there were a second family to her. Lori says, “At POY, we emphasized ahimsa (non-violence) greatly. The studio was a place where all students felt love and compassion with no preconceived notions and no judgments of themselves or others. We didn’t want our students to feel they had to all look the same in their posture practice or feel the same things since we are all in a different place – in yoga practice as well as in life.”
She teaches many styles of yoga, including vinyasa, slow flow, yin, chair, heated, beginner, intermediate, partner, basics and private classes. She has worked with a variety of individuals from 8 to 70 years, and ailments including injuries to MS.
Lori loves nature and being outdoors. She and her husband have two dogs that she loves dearly.
