Lori Walker has her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification and is a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance®. She also has a Master's Degree in Social Work and twenty years of experience with voluntary national health care organizations. Her mental health background contributes significantly to her teaching modality. She began her yoga practice 20 years ago after the birth of her first daughter.
"The first thing I learned was that I was not breathing. I was literally living life while holding my breath. Learning to breathe properly has been life changing" she says. Several years after beginning her own practice, she felt the urge to teach. Creating a practice through her church, she instructed adults, seniors, children, and developmentally-challenged teens for several years. She left teaching temporarily to return to her not-for-profit roots as CEO of the Alzheimer's Association. At a new crossroads, in 2016 she chose to return to teaching yoga and has come full circle with her desire to share with others the many benefits of yoga.
