Lorna O'Shea

About The Teacher

Lorna has been teaching for the last 10 years in studios and workshops in Hong Kong, Europe and the Ivory Coast.

Her practice and teaching are influenced by different schools of yoga such as Iyengar for alignment, Ashtanga Vinyasa for strength of will and tenacity, Hatha for balance, Yin and Restorative for complete surrender. Her approach to yoga is one that places importance on breath and empathy towards ourselves. Over the years, it has convinced her that most of our fundamental attitudes to life have their physical counterparts in the body. This is what she shares in her class – control and integration of body through asanas, mind through pranayama and relaxation, and spirit through meditation. This, coupled with her sense of humour, will put you right at ease.

Lorna’s teaching style incorporates active classes with restorative and mindfulness practice, always giving importance to gentle realignments and adjustments and to bringing the breath in sync with the movement. Whilst challenging you physically, Lorna’s classes also gently encourage you to go a little beyond what you think you can do!

Lorna is also a Certified Sound Therapist specialising in the use of Tibetan singing bowls.

Retreat Guru's Vision
