Lori joins the The Cycling Yogi after recently relocating from St. Andrews, Scotland. Although she is certified to teach the Ashtanga Primary Series, Pranayama (breath control), Meditation, and Sat-Kriyas (purification), Lori’s class style blends the intense physical asanas of Ashtanga, with pranayama and the more esoteric aspects of yoga to create an “immoveable union” of mind, body, and spirit.
Her insatiable thirst for scientific and philosophical elements of yoga has led to multiple trips across India for yoga study. A yogini at heart, she is inspired by legendary yogis like Sri Sri Ravi Shankakar, T.K.V. Desikachar (son of T. Krishnamacharya), Sri Neem Karoli Baba Maharaj-ji, and Indra Devi (to name a few), and strives to live her life by Mahatma Gandhi's quote of 'being the change you wish to see in the world…’” She happily calls Golden, Colorado home and is excited to join The Cycling Yogi family.
Lori instructs the following:
It's true! A long, deep stretch. This class follows a Vinyasa flow design, but rather than moving quickly into the next posture (asana) we stay and explore the posture by holding for a few breaths. This is a great class for all levels of students!
Align and Flow Yoga
Deepen your practice by establishing the foundation of alignment while opening to the radiance and joy of flow.
Poses are held longer, allowing us to truly embody each pose and simultaneously open the body, mind and spirit. We flow with breath and awareness while encouraging ourselves to go beyond personal boundaries. Through the stability of alignment we build the intuition to become wise and safe practicing yogis. We also cultivate the ease and the flowing grace of movement.
Open to your own inner grace and radiance.
