Lora has been teaching yoga for six years. She came to the practice when her daughter was still a baby. At that time Lora was worn out from stress and struggled finding joy and inspiration. It took her five years of buying yoga magazines, reading them from cover to cover, to finally step onto the mat. It was within seconds of being at her first class that she felt a peace and safety, a visceral sense of being at home. She continued to practice off-and-on for the next four years, and then she immersed herself in the practice by enrolling in the Himalayan Institute’s teacher training. The training provided her the structure and discipline for yoga and meditation to become a way of life. Midway through she realized she loved sharing yoga. Her passion for yoga is what inspires her to stand in front of large groups of people each week. She loves seeing how it has healed and transformed individuals. Her work continues to evolve and is informed by many of the great yoga traditions. She is at once modern, while also rooted in the wisdom of timeless teachings. She feels blessed to have the discipline to practice, and blessed to have the love to share yoga. She is both at home with small groups or large ones. She makes the teachings accessible and understandable to everyone. Lora tells her students, “Be your own best teacher, and be your own best student! Use the power of your mind to heal and to empower yourself! With each mindful breath, claim your birthright of wisdom, strength, and light!”
