Avalon's (Lori's) Bio
SHE IS BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE
Avalon joyfully dedicates herself full-time to the physical, mental and spiritual advancement of the many students whose lives she feels privileged to have touched. Her coaching and teachings are playful, liberating, down-to-earth, direct.
Although successful, Avalon left Wall Street more than twenty years ago to live a life and find a career that would satisfy her desire for a more holistic life style.
As a student of esoteric knowledge, it was her passionate commitment to holistic practices and self-awareness that led her to study with a wide variety of yoga linages and then receive her 500 hour certification with Kripalu. In addition, Avalon completed Yoga Therapy with the Rocky Mountain School, and also trained in Pheonix Rising Yoga therapy. She is a certified personal trainer with Affa. She went on to continue training in many other healing modalities including Reiki, Vortex, Magical Awakening, as well as other spiritual techniques. Avalon has created and organized Goddess workshops for her local community.
With her own practice in Brewster, NY she has become a popular instructor in New York’s Hudson Valley region. For the past nine years, Avalon has worked at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, NY as a core faculty yoga instructor for the 23,000+ participants that attend Omega each year. She also teaches workshops and classes for staff at Omega in personal development and yoga. For the past three years, she has recorded several videos for her TV show on Comcast and due to her clients’ requests she is currently in the process of creating a YouTube channel.
Avalon urges her students to embrace their own uniqueness and return to the breath, with the intention of returning to the divine within. Inspiring them to live life more fully and peacefully.
