Wherever you are in your journey.
Whatever your faith looks like or feels like.
No judgment here. You are welcome here.

There is room here:
There is room for doubt and questions and unknowns here.
Room to breathe. Room to work out your faith.
(It’s all between you and the divine)
Room for you if church hurts but you’re cool with jesus.
Room for all bodies.
Room if you can’t afford it. (just ask)

Integrated & Embodied Soul Quotes

“A healthy soul is an integrated soul.”

-Dallas Willard


“What we need is a spirituality that honors the body we have and comprehends its social meaning but does not reduce us to it.

The certainty of the body’s need for daily bread directs us toward a spiritual wisdom made manifest in the body. According to Jesus, we do not have to ignore the body in order to be spiritual; even in its frailty, it provides an indication of how we should live and how we are to carry on a spiritual life.”

-Lillian Calles Barger

Raise Your Voice

The words you are currently reading are about this important book, Raise Your Voice by Kathy Khang. This introduction is also about the background of my personal/ emotional/ connection and how it is all interwoven with taking back and raising my own voice. (while clumsily learning how to spend my own privilege) Three years ago …

Odyssey: n. a long wandering and eventful journey

This is the story of how yoga was the conduit that saved my life, reclaimed my voice and a pivotal path to the journey home to my whole, integrated self: my heart, my mind, my body, and my spirit.

About Lori:

Lori is a 225hr Certified R-HYI Yoga Instructor.

She grew up overseas and Downunder, a TCK, on more than one beautiful island. Always a free spirit & cheerleader. She gets her love of words, science, and theology from her Linguist parents. Studying music was the only path that made sense in college, at the time, and music runs in the family and back through extended family. After a painful separation from music, she’s listening for new opportunities to make music. (If you’d like to hear more about that part of her story, check out the first 3 short episodes of her podcast). 

A practitioner of spiritual sobriety and freedom, advocate for embodied, integrated soul care and self-compassion. Yoga was such a pivotal part of her healing journey, of listening to her body, her intuition, and remembering who she was and of her calling to help be a small part of bringing hope & healing to the world. A lifelong student, and contemplative reader, at-home researcher, and student of social justice matters, a more equitable world, and believer in shalom and wholeness.

Discovering a Jesus-centric yoga practice was such a redemptive part of her journey. An embodied practice that brings heart+mind+body+spirit together can be very moving, powerful, and restorative. Her first two yoga classes as a student, were an encounter with the Divine Love of God whispering his love to her heart as she began to learn the art and practice of listening in prayer, through Contemplative Christian Spiritual Practices & Disciplines such as Christian Meditation, Lectio Divina, the Prayer of Examen and Centering Prayer.

She’s an obsessed and smitten auntie to one perfect nephew.

She’s so excited to see you in class or connect with you online. Grace & Peace
