Lorrie Shepard and Brian Yuen
For over a decade, Brian and Lorrie have been traveling and sharing Yoga and AcroYoga love.

"We bring our own unique approach to teaching and healing — one that is focused on strong foundations, clear communication and a safe container to explore your potential."

Both Brian and Lorrie teach on-going yoga classes in Southern California and lead workshops to the public as well as continuing ed for yoga teachers, trainings and retreats in the U.S. and abroad. They each collaborate with yoga teacher trainings offering unique engaging training modules. 

While there are many pieces to the puzzle of health and wellness, the practice of yoga, mindfulness, play, relaxation, breath-body connection are those they continue to share.

They compassionately support you on your path of growth and wellness.

E-RYT 500

Lorrie’s yoga journey beginning in the BKS Iyengar yoga tradition, swiftly transitioned from tentatively taking her first class to attending as many classes as would fit into her schedule. There came a moment when she realized yoga is not simply something to do, it illuminates we are.

With over 1,000 hours of training in yoga, meditation and wellness, Lorrie collaborates with yoga teacher trainings, leads Restorative Yoga teacher trainings, workshops in addition to group classes and personalized sessions. Co-teaching AcroYoga and partner yoga with Brian has been a thrill and an arena for not only co-creating a fun and powerful practice and meaningful connections but also a platform for her own deep personal growth.

The Hippocratic oath, First Do No Harm, aligns with the cornerstone of yoga, Ahimsa, which is paramount to each interaction. Lorrie brings clarity, compassion and creativity to wholeheartedly meet each person where they are.  Her classes blend traditional and healing qualities of yoga coupled with breath-centered intelligent sequencing, encouraging you to explore and cultivate mindfulness and bring lightness and into your practice and a greater sense of well-being into your life, unveiling your full potential.
