She is a pharmacist who believes in combining Eastern and Western health practices for a holistic experience for her patients and students. Lori believes yoga should be accessible to everyone and inspires students to reach personal goals, to use their breath, and to be present in their yoga practice for physical and mental health.
Born in Nova Scotia, Lori loves to get outside and be active in beautiful BC. She bikes, runs, sails, swims, hikes, snowboards, and does yoga to unwind.
“When I was first considering leaving my life and job on the East Coast to move to Vancouver in 2010 with my vacation fling from the Cayman Islands (my current husband:p), I remember seeing a picture of yoga outdoors at Kits Beach. It looked so beautiful - the sea, the mountains, everyone on their colourful yoga mats on the grass. I thought “I can’t wait to move and do yoga on the beach right there”. My excitement overcame any fear. Now I am so blessed to be able to actually TEACH at my dream spot this summer with Mat Collective. Dreams do come true!”
