Lorrie Shepard

E-RYT 500

Lorrie’s yoga journey beginning in the BKS Iyengar tradition, swiftly transitioned from tentatively taking her first class to attending as many classes as would fit into her schedule. There came a moment when she realized yoga is not simply something to do, it illuminates who we are.


With over 1,000 hours of multifaceted yoga, meditation and wellness trainings, Lorrie, collaborates with yoga teacher trainings, leading Restorative Yoga teacher trainings, workshops and immersions in addition to her on-going group classes. Co-teaching AcroYoga and partner yoga with Brian has been an exuberant thrill and an arena for her own personal growth while deeply embracing the healing practice of meta/loving kindness has cracked Lorrie’s heart wide open.

 

The Hippocratic oath doctors take, First Do No Harm, aligns with the cornerstone of yoga, Ahimsa, which is paramount to each interaction. Lorrie brings clarity, compassion and creativity to wholeheartedly meet each person where they are.  Her classes blend traditional and healing qualities of yoga coupled with breath-centered intelligent sequencing, encouraging you to explore and cultivate mindfulness and bring lightness and into your practice and a greater sense of well-being into your life, unveiling your full potential.
