Odyssey: n. a long wandering and eventful journey
This is the story of how yoga was the conduit that saved my life, reconnected me to the wisdom of my own body and inner voice, 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.
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, and recently began singing again. (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, curious at-home researcher, and student of social justice matters, a more equitable world, and believer in shalom and wholeness. She recognizes she has a lot to learn about equity, spending her privilege and is doing her personal best to do the work and bring awareness to her companions along the way.
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 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
