Lorrie Lorrie Shepard - E-RYT200/RYT 500 and certified restorative yoga teacher

Lorrie's yoga journey began in the B.K.S. Iyengar tradition and swiftly transitioned from tentatively taking a class to attending as many classes as would fit into her schedule. There came a moment when she realized yoga was no longer something she did, it illuminated who she is.

Lorrie received her first teacher training from YogaWorks, and since has attended a great number of intensives, immersions and workshops expanding her knowledge of movement, the subtle body, breath, mind, sound - and how they interact. She has had the privilege of studying with and learning various styles and methods from many brilliant teachers, and particularly draws inspiration from the teachings of Pema Chodran. Always a student, her teachers also include her students, her yoga practice, nature, a myriad of books, and this moment: right here, now.

A new dimension was added to her life when she co-founded Interactive-Yoga with Brian Yuen, spring-boarding off the workshops they were teaching together including AcroYoga, partner yoga and yoga nidra workshops, and vigorous vinyasa classes. Interactive-yoga was born from a mutual desire to share the teaching of yoga and to create space for expansion of the Self. Teaching yoga to U.S. Veterans, yoga to children with autism, leading restorative workshops/classes, and sharing the magic and support of partner, acrobatic, and Thai yoga massage - the healing art practice of meta/loving kindness has expanded Lorrie's heart infinitely. Her classes blend traditional and restorative/therapeutic elements through the lens of devotion and love.

She encourages students to explore, discover and cultivate their potential to bring lightness and a greater sense of ease into their practice and into their lives.

Primarily based in Southern California, Lorrie has also had the privilege of sharing the teachings in NY, NJ, CT, MA, PA and abroad. Her classes blend traditional and healing qualities of yoga through the lens of devotion and love. She encourages students to explore, discover and cultivate their potential and bring lightness into their practice and into their lives.
