I remember Lori’s calm and centered energy from many years ago and connected with the same feelings when attending a recent retreat. She has a beautiful way of making me feel at ease and a remarkable talent of creating a safe container in which to practise and feel at home on the mat and in my body. I instantly recognized the style of yoga as the same, however, I did see a calm and beautiful wisdom that comes only through life experience and personal growth. I had forgotten how beautiful her voice is and how grounding her energy feels. Add in the infectious smile and easy warmth and it is pure yoga bliss. I felt instantly welcome and had a lovely sense that on the mat, that I was exactly where I was supposed to be. This was the first in person group activity since Covid and I had forgotten how powerful practise with others can be, how palpable the energy can become when focussed by a skillful teacher. Thank you Lori, from the bottom of my heart and hope I can join you on the mat, in person, again soon. Namaste – Laura Brace


I attended the “Awaken your Spiritual Warrior” Yoga Retreat with Lori on October 31st/21. It was a great class – two 90 minute yoga sessions, each one different, as well as a meditation and journaling part. The afternoon yin session was the perfect way to end the day and set us off home with clear minds and nicely stretched muscles.
Lori was engaging and enlightening – she made us all at ease immediately and her voice continued to nicely and gently guide us throughout the day. She offered various levels of yoga poses which was beneficial to those of us that hadn’t been to one of her classes previously. Would join this workshop again! Thanks Lori! – Angela Mackie


Prior to the pandemic, Lori hosted international retreats to India and Peru, as well as locally on the Sunshine Coast and Bowen Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
