Lori’s love affair with yoga began twenty-two years ago. 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. It is an honor and a joy for Lori to lead the YTT at magical Mystica.
