Loree became interested in yoga in the late 90s and early 2000s as an exercise routine and stress reliever during her Bachelor of Psychology degree. It wasn’t until becoming pregnant with her daughter in 2011, however, that she took a prenatal yoga course and saw how the physical postures, breathing techniques and mental/soulful aspects of yoga can come together and deliver huge benefits.
Since then, her practice has become a more routine part of her life, and became a “life saver” and amazing tool when returning to her full-time public-school teaching position. While trying to find balance in all areas of life, she embarked on her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training and became a certified yoga instructor in 2014.
She has since been teaching yoga and mindfulness to children in a yoga club at her school and teaches Vinyasa style classes to friends, family, fellow teachers and Beginner’s Yoga class at a couple of local studios in Moncton or from her home-based studio space. Loree has a passion for helping others with the basics of yoga, and knows that the practice can be a good fit for ANY body, age or ability who wants to reap its benefits.
She has a special interest in how yoga can help your mental health to relieve stress, anxiety, trauma and depression and deal with change, and is currently in her Internship portion of Level III training from Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy in Massachusetts. Loree is excited to become the 1st certified Yoga Therapist in New Brunswick in February through the International Association of Yoga therapist. She embraces life-long learning and has attended a Yoga for Trauma training session and many other workshops such as Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within event in Florida in 2016 where she became a “Fire Walker”.
Loree truly embraces what meditation, breathing techniques and physical movement in the form of asana can do for your mind, body and soul, and would love to share with anyone who is open to the possibility of what doors can be opened and what we can really do when we reach out to become our truest and best selves.
