Giving birth should be your greatest achievement not your greatest fear. -Jane Weidman
Lori has been practicing yoga since 2001 and quickly fell in love with the practice. After the birth of her second son in 2009, she decided it was the time to deepen her practice and enroll in a Yoga Teacher Training program. She received her Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) designation from Yoga Alliance in 2010 and has been teaching ever since.
While Lori began teaching primarily Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga styles of yoga, she soon realized that her true passion was in prenatal yoga. Having practiced through all three of her pregnancies, she understands the benefit of a regular practice on how we carry and birth our babies.
To further her education, she sought out Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training with Laurel Hicks of Mindful Mamas Prenatal Yoga. In addition to her 200 hr Registered Yoga Teacher designation, Lori completed an additional 85 hour program, specializing solely in teaching the expectant mom. She now carries the designation of Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT-85) and is registered as such with Yoga Alliance. After completion of her specialized training, she began teaching expectant moms and enjoys helping them to see the beauty in their changing bodies and the miracles that are being created.
Lori also teaches a fun Mom and Baby yoga class. Mom and Baby yoga is a great way for moms to reconnect with other moms at the same stage in life and spend some quality time bonding with baby.
To better serve her postpartum mamas, Lori has become a certified MUTU System™ Pro. MUTU System is for women who want their bodies to look, feel and function better after having a baby. Even if it’s a long time since having a baby. They want a core and a pelvic floor that works, that feels right and that does its job.
Lori has been married to her best friend Rob since 2004 and is blessed to be the mother of three beautiful children, Ben, Jonah and Kelsey. She believes in building community with other expectant moms and truly believes in our bodies and the birth process.
