Piper-Lori Parker

About us

Piper comes to yoga organically from a background in theatre, music, and dance. Having spent a huge part of her childhood in Vaganova Russian ballet class, she brings a strong sense of discipline, posture, and alignment to the practice of yoga. It's not often that one is given the opportunity to turn a passion into a livelihood, and she feels fortunate to have done that a few times in her life, one of them being this awesome journey with yoga.

Piper has truly found her dharma in managing yoga studios, after leaving her ten year career as a Marketing Executive to teach and be of service to the yoga community. Her extensive experience working in the Chicago yoga and fitness community, along with her business background and sixth sense for hiring and recruiting the best make her a uniquely ideal candidate for handling the direction and operational vision for Zen Yoga Garage. Piper is a Yoga Alliance certified Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with 200 hour Hot Yoga Teacher Training, 100 hour Power Yoga Teacher Training, Yoga Sculpt Teacher Training, and Kids Yoga Teacher Training all under her belt. She has led or facilitated numerous programs at CorePower Yoga, including eleven Teacher Trainings, Wellness Cleanse, Boot Camps, and Yogi Training.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
