A true Yogi is one who seeks truth in all relationships and in all life. This woman uses and lives lies. Sure she can wriggle around on the floor in yoga poses but in her personal life she will make up endless, very damaging lies about other people whom she so targets for her victims. She will become jealous of the close relationship of two best friends and then take one aside saying, “don't tell him or her that I told you this but they said this about you...”. When she is scorned watch out, as she will make it her life's quest to destroy your reputation. God forbid, if you are lured into a sexual relationship with her, and you have a girl friend or wife, you are going down. The most important thing in a teacher/student relationship in yoga is the spiritual connection, which here does not exist. A total fraud! As others have said before me, “look elsewhere for a good yoga teacher and a good person”. Ultimately we must, "hate the sin, and not the sinner. For the grace of God go I". But we can't allow them to continue their acts of violence and hypocracy upon others. This must stop. I am a thousand miles away from her now, and happy to help with my truth.
Personal training – I've been taking yoga lessons from Lorey for about 2 1/2 years now. I was very hesitant at first since I was concerned about the "sissy" aspect of being a male in what is in America a female dominated activitiy. My wife (who had already been in the classes for about a year) challenged me to join her, and promised I wouldn't have to wear a leotard.
Lorey critically assesed my physical capabilities at that first lesson, and also integrated imformation on my personal health concerns. After that first class, which was mostly imformational on her part, I have been steadily challenged to improve my strength, endurance, and flexibility through Yoga. I've been able to keep my weight down, and have much greater awareness of what my body is doing in space and time. Although I really appreaciate the classes that are physically demanding, I've come to appreciate the classes for restoration and relaxation too. Lorey always checks on the energy level of her students before class starts so no one is pushed beyond what she thinks is safe for that student. But over time every student is expected to achieve more with their practice. For being so tiny and sweet, she can be tough (but nowhere near as hardball as my high school PE instructor). She takes her role as a teacher seriously, and has been an inspirational coach for me. Now in my 50's, I can now acomplish feats of strength and balance that I could not do in my youth.
My image of "true" yoga was of Yogi's in loin cloths twisting into imposible poses in the streets of impoverished lands, so I was put off at first about all the props and studio concerns. But as a student (in the US) I now feel that I probably wouldn't have lasted long without the equipment and clean safe space that Lorey has provided. The newest studio on Poston is the best yet.
For all my early ridicule of sissy yoga, Lorey has made it an important part of my life.
Such a devoted, kind, honest professional – Lorey is simply amazing. I have had the privilege of practicing with her steadily for the last two and a half years, and I have learned more from and through her than perhaps anyone outside of my immediate family. She has helped me become more aware about not only yoga, but myself: including my body, my breathing, previous injuries, my mind and emotions and how our physical bodies are affected by our emotional states, and my bad habits. Lorey has always been an open and loving individual towards me, and is a fiercely loyal and sincerely kind teacher.
Another great thing about Lorey is how much knowledge she has acquired throughout her years of study with masters all over the United States and India, including her good friend Rodney. Because she has always stated the benefits and direct bodily reactions to specific poses, I now know how to begin to use yoga as a healing practice to help correct specific ailments as they arise (headaches, menstrual cramps, fatigue, giddiness and depression among many more)
Her flexibility for tailoring practices for each individuals? injuries and specific daily or chronic ailments is very admirable. For example, when I injured both of my wrists (before I began practicing yoga) diagnosed as D?Quarvians Syndrome, Tendonitis, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (through instrumental overuse) Lorey was extremely accommodating and helped me to ?pull out? of my wrists and become very aware of when I was ?sinking in? to them, holding tension within, and how tension in my wrists was merely the culmination of tension throughout my upper arms, shoulders, upper chest, and lower back, and even my hamstrings.
Overall, she is a superior teacher and guide for one?s journey in yoga practices. Oh, and contrary to some previously written negative reviews ? I have never, never experienced anything like those woman have described. I am a young female student, and have never witnessed any of those alleged behaviors. I highly, highly reccomend Lorey.
Look Elsewhere for a Yoga Teacher – Although I am reluctant to leave a negative review, I agree completely with the review titled ?Hypocritical Yoga? and strongly advise against taking this teacher?s classes, especially if you are new to yoga. It would be most unfortunate for a newcomer to have their introduction to yoga through this mean-spirited teacher. Although the teacher knows yoga poses, she has a lot to learn about how to teach and interact with students in a pleasant, professional and respectful manner. Her treatment of some students is shockingly bad ? sometimes even hateful. I know of at least three former students who now refuse to attend her classes because of her attitude. There are many good and well-balanced yoga teachers in the Nashville area who create an accepting and pleasant environment in which to learn and practice yoga. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. Look around Citysearch and find a good teacher!
Hypocritical yoga – Don't waste your money. This instructor is rude and mean and does not hide the fact that she picks favorites in her classes. Most of which are not the young ones. She snaps at people if they dare ask a question, is selective about who she aids in getting postions correct, and will humiliate people who are trying but not getting it right. After that she wants to give you a hug and tell you to send love out to the world. What a joke, who wants to hear her advice on love after she has been, rude, insulting, and humiliating? I felt awful hearing her treat others so badly in front of everyone. She stressed us out much more than yoga could relieve. Don't waste your money, especially if you're young AND female (she won't like you and you'll KNOW it).
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – A yoga instructor since 1990, she teaches all-level classes in the Cadwallader Residential Hall at The Scarritt- Bennet Learning Center.
exellent – God bless, someone that really knows what they are doing. Lorey is incredible and very gentle. I believe that she is the most accomadating and qualified yoga instructor east of the mississippi. Seriously check her out at Lorey yoga, you might just learn something.
yoga space – Oh....my time spent with this lovely yoga instructor and her gentle way that she guides you into exploring the deep feeling of relazations, and feeling renewed, and energized at the end of her class. Everything was just perfect in every way!!!
