Loren studied to be a teacher in 2010 at the Nosara Yoga Institute, and has since received over 500 additional hours in trainings for therapeutics, restorative yoga, kids yoga, prenatal yoga, and ayurveda. She is certified to teach yoga for Heart Disease and Cancer. She is currently working towards her 800-hour certification to be a Yoga Therapist, and hopes to work more intensively with therapeutics aimed at physical and/or emotional imbalance in studio and medical settings.
Loren’s favorite quote these days is the mantra Purnamadah Purnamidam Purnat Purnamudachyate Purnasya Purnamadaya Purnameva Vashishyate, Om shanti, shanti, shanti meaning “that is whole, this is whole, from the whole wholeness comes forth, when something is taken from the whole wholeness remains, Om peace, peace, peace”. Yoga is a journey from a mistaken sense of brokenness or incompleteness, to wholeness.
During training, Jami realized her true calling was teaching. She quit her prestigious career, now done virtually, and started teaching at the local military bases - working with veterans, wounded warriors, dependents and local nationals. While in Japan, Jami expanded her knowledge of exercise science getting additional certifications in Pilates, group exercise, indoor cycling, high-intensity interval training, aquatics for athletes, BodyCombat and many more.
Recently transplanted to New Orleans, Jami shares her zest for life and love of yoga with our Krewe, through fun, challenging and empowering classes that encourage students to step out of their comfort zones, love their authentic selves and live their best lives!
Her favorite Yoga word is OHM.
Her favorite Yoga Goddess is Durga. She is the warrior goddess, whose mythology centers around combating evils and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity, and dharma of the good. She is the fierce form of the protective mother goddess, willing to unleash her anger against wrong, violence for liberation and destruction to empower creation.
