As a therapist, Loretta brings the ancient insights of #Yoga into mainstream wellness and educational programs.
Her philosophy is that health is a unity of body, mind, and spirit. Yoga is the vehicle for deepening this experience of unity.
As a mentor, she brings Yoga into the world as a resource for personal growth, healing and awakening.
Loretta opens the door of Yoga for others and then helps to guide them to find the way to a compassionate, healthy and joyful life.
Her love of mentoring comes from her early years when she was a public school teacher.
Trained as a teacher, Loretta carries that skill into her Yoga classes and teacher training programs.
Her compassion for others comes through in her teaching and through Yoga she guides people to listen to and understand their own body.
Her Yoga is of the #Iyengar style and she incorporates study of the #chakras and #YogaNidra into her sessions.

She has been certified by the #MSSociety in teaching Yoga to individuals with this disease, and her credited course at a #Worcestercollege is always full with students placed on waiting lists to take her class. #yogavidya #divedeepriseup

Laughing has been scientifically proven to improve the quality of your life. Always find time to laugh! 😜

Are you feeling guilty for a “bad” food choice or a binge? You’re definitely not alone.. it’s the story of every girl who’s been on a diet.
Idk about you but I’m over allowing food to dictate my emotions and vice versa. I think it’s about time we started choosing grace over guilt. .
To me, health is about listening to your body.
It’s caring more about how you feel than what you look like.
It’s caring more about fueling your body than feeding your emotions.
It’s the five minute morning affirmations.
It’s long walks with crisp air.
It’s eating nutritious foods and respecting your satisfaction levels.
It’s deep, authentic laughter.
It’s meaningful conversations in a world full of chit chat.
It’s laying down in the grass to stare at the stars.
It’s forgiving the people that hurt you.
It’s being vulnerable over and over again not because you don’t get clobbered but because you are authentic to what you feel and who you are.
It’s staying hydrated.
It’s being present.
It’s holding hands.
It’s a personal day when you need it.
It’s asking for help when you need it.
It’s a “no” when you need it.
It’s a “yes” when you’re scared.
It’s recognizing negative thought patterns objectively and implementing self love mantras in their place.
It’s snuggling with your dog.
It’s choosing long term satisfaction over instant gratification.
It’s getting uncomfortable.
It’s growth.
I challenge you this week to approach your health from an internal perspective. Identify what health is for you and choose grace over guilt. Your health will never be found in a fad diet or a number on the scale or the size of your jeans. It sounds cliche but I’ll keep screaming it as long as it’s true— it isn’t healthy unless you’re happy♥️ #mssymptonfree #fightms #mswarrior #msawareness

Earlier this month, an old friend approached me to ask if I would donate a print to a charity event she’s holding in a couple weeks.

I was humbled and so touched by the wonderful things she had to say about my work and recent journey, of course I obliged as it means the world to be able to contribute my art and vision to such an amazing cause.

The National MS Society works towards bringing attention and raising funds to help research, treat, and hopefully one day cure those who suffer from Multiple Sclerosis. Learning a bit more about MS since asking to contribute, I know that it can be horrendous to the victims and their families, especially because it’s so difficult to diagnose and treat.
MS is known as a ‘silent disease.’ And in order to best choose a photograph that symbolizes the strength of those who suffer from MS, I decided to go with this image from the active volcanic island of Ometepe. The island is alive with beauty, rich diversity and fertile landscape, but there always lies the silent threat of a life changing event.. much like the lives of those who live with MS.

The event is Fall Crush in Knoxville, and is put on by the talented and passionate people of the Mid-South Chapter of the National MS Society. I’ll have a couple images included in the silent auction, but more importantly, I’m happy to support the cause, help an old friend -@kcneilson - and learn more about an ailment that affects so many. So grateful for the opportunity, and hopeful that this event makes a big difference. 🙏🏼💙✌🏼

You know you’ve had a good workout when you’re still sweating an hour later. I think they may be trying to kill us at Orange Theory. Or just preparing us for Hell Week 😬 Either way, my body has finally recovered from the race and I feel back to my old self. Ran my .25 mile sprints at 8.5 today and I think I made it up to 9-10 rounds (I lost count). Now for some yoga!
