About The Teacher

Lori’s love affair with yoga began twenty-two years ago in a gymnasium at McGill University. As a dancer and a very spiritual being in her essence, the movement, breath, and space that Yoga offered spoke to her soul and ignited a spark that has only gotten stronger and more powerful over the years.

Lori explored the styles of Integral, Sivananda, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Kundalini, and Kripalu Yoga, and loves to share a mix of all of these in her teaching. She took her first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course at the Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica in 2004, and that magical month changed her life forever in the best way. With twenty years of loving service in the healing arts, Lori brings a tremendous gift to the Yoga training through her expertise as a registered E-RYT 200 Yoga Instructor, a Massage Therapist, a Reiki Master, and a Psychotherapist with a Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology. Lori also self-published her first book three years ago, entitled: ‘Beauty’s Way: Inspiration on the Path of Awakening’.

It is a true honor and a pleasure for Lori to be a guide for you in Italy, a land dear to her heart and soul, in this incredible month of training. She now lives most of the year in Costa Rica where her Italian husband is co-owner of a beautiful and magical retreat center called Mystica.

Why Retreat?

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

To give my ego a break from all these construction projects. Layth
