Although I've been practicing yoga on and off for 10 years, Lori has brought a new meaning to this art. Her gentle and spiritual nature has enhanced this practice. She not only is an expert teacher, but also understands the needs of each person in her class.While encouraging one to attain the full benefits from the exercises, Lori does ensure that you feel comfortable in your own body. Her wisdom and natural love for mankind is truly amazing! I feel surely blessed to have met such a wonderful yoga teacher.

Avalon offers more than just Yoga ... her energy work and coaching her clients into a better lifestyle are far superior to any other practitioner I know, have followed and worked with... Avalon's enthusiasm is highly contagious and inspiring!!!

Avalon's lighthearted and deeply devotional approach is as invigorating and uplifting as it is inspiring and calming.

Lori is the best yoga instructor ever! She gives each student personal attention to make sure that you are doing each pose correctly. She’s very encouraging and always makes you feel successful. After every class I feel more flexible and more peaceful.

Lori (Avalon) is an exceptional yoga instructor. She is open and giving and in each one of her classes, individual attention is given to each student. Everyone gets the help that he or she needs. If you are lucky enough to take private sessions with Lori, you will find a session that is planned just for you. I have been in both group classes and individual sessions and believe that Lori has made a big difference in the way that I feel.

Doing energy healing sessions with Avalon is not only a deeply relaxing experience, but as time goes by I began to peel away at the layers of unconscious energy patterns holding me back in my life. I am now more awake and aware of who I really am. I feel so much gratitude for your unwavering commitment and presence.

A lot of my male friends do not do yoga and they are missing out on something extraordinary! When I came to Lori's class I was achy, stiff, constantly pulling muscles and had a very limited range of motion! Now after consistently going to her class I feel younger, more mobile and I don't get the frequent injuries I use to get in my other sports activities. I have found Lori's class to be the perfect addition and a way to recover from my weekly sport and workout routine! As a bonus her pleasant demeanor, soothing voice and ability to help you reach your goals makes the workouts seem like a treat instead of a chore! I recommend her class to anyone!

If you want to change your body, look no further! I came to Lori with goals for myself and never looked back. When those goals were accomplished, we made new goals. Lori is that rare combination of toughness and kindness who helps you power through a well thought out workout session. She helps you to go beyond what you may think your limits are. Her knowledge is so impressive, and her sense of humor comes through at those moments when needed most! She won't let you quit, and she really cares about your individual needs. I couldn't give a higher recommendation for a personal trainer.

I highly recommend Avalon to you. She has been so instrumental in my mental and physical well being. She intuitively knows exactly what I need at the moment I need it; whether it be a physical adjustment, words of wisdom to inspire me or her sense of humor to make me chuckle. I truly have grown so much from her teachings. I always look forward to class. She is better than chocolate.

I've been taking private yoga classes with Lori (Avalon) for over 3 years now and she is simply amazing. As someone with chronic back and neck pain, Lori's enthusiasm and expertise in teaching yoga is empowering and motivating. After a session with Lori, my body, mind and spirit feels terrific. You owe it to yourself to try a session with her. I can't thank her enough!
- Tee Cotter
I have been a client of Avalon's for nearly ten years. Her classes are as challenging as her personality is engaging. I love the fact that she begins our Thursday morning class by asking, "How is everyone feeling today?". She is such a professional that she can customize and conduct a session according to the immediate needs of her students. I have practiced yoga on and off since my college days and am grateful to have found such a wonderful teacher. Namaste and thank you, Avalon!

I have been a student of Lori's for almost 3 years now, my name is Mary Ann, I started with Lori as a beginner in yoga I could not do a lot of the poses' at first but with Lori's help and amazing support and confidence she gives in her class's makes one want to keep trying to succeed in those poses'. Lori is and has been a wonderful teacher besides her great skill she is also very knowledgeable of the history of all types of yoga's and body parts to help with difficult areas' of one's body.I was unable to do the squat pose for a year but continuing on and never giving up I have now been able to achieve this pose as many others. I highly recommend Lori to anyone who is interested in getting healthy and fit. Lori makes a person feel very comfortable and works patiently with every person in her class's. She is truly gifted and wonderful and I hope to continue on with her as long as life allows. I truly wish her much blessings and helping many more like she has helped me, I am truly grateful for all she has done for me as I am sure for many others. Thanks to Lori I have benefited much from her class's and her knowledge and enjoy the hard work of yoga to maintain a healthy and more calmer life.
