YOGA GRATITUDE

"I have attended Lori’s yoga sessions at the Yoga Root and instantly clicked with her yoga style. She puts a lot of thought into the themes in her classes, and I find they always resonate with me. This inspired me to book a yoga therapy session with her. Her yoga therapy was even better than her yoga class. She took the time to put me at ease and to ask me what I wanted out of the session. She then proceeded to tailor the entire session to my needs and left me with a plan/routine to incorporate into my daily routine. I highly recommend booking with Lori and am looking forward to another session with her soon."

"I’m a big traveler and my trip to Peru with Lori was one of the best of my lifetime. It was the perfect combination of culture, adventure, trekking, yoga, sightseeing, fun and friendship. Lori organized the trip flawlessly. We had the benefit of her outstanding yoga classes to keep us fit and grounded. I can’t imagine a better experience to explore the mysteries of Peru."

"My husband and I attended weekly private yoga sessions with Lori throughout my pregnancy. We always looked forward to our weekly sessions with Lori. We love that she tailors her sessions specifically to us with specific themes and mantras each week. Her sessions were beneficial to us both physically and mentally. Since I was pregnant, Lori helped me feel prepared and empowered for the birth of my daughter. She would even bring me birthing books, prenatal recipes and music! We are looking forward to starting back up with Lori postpartum."
