Mixed Level Hatha Yoga


This class is taught by:

Lori Seemann

E-RYT 200/500 Yoga Instructor, Owner

I found yoga in 2001 after the birth of my second child. I was working night-shifts as an RN in a hospital and struggled with anxiety, as well as finding the time and motivation to take care of my body while also being devoted to my family. I loved the way my body felt while doing yoga, and the calm my mind experienced after. I always looked forward to attending classes.

I completed my initial 230 hour yoga teacher training program at the Yoga Center of Minneapolis in 2008. I had decided to take the training to deepen my knowledge of both the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga, and began teaching part time after my completion of the program. I continue to expand my knowledge of yoga with ongoing training every year, and recently completed my 500 hour teaching certification with Christina Sell & Giaconda Parker at the San Marcos School of Yoga. Personally, the practice of yoga is slowly and steadily building my capacity to be content, even joyful, regardless of what is happening around me.

I also am a Registered Nurse and one of the family owners of Prairie River Home Care, which provides long and short term medical and supportive care to clients in their homes.  I am inspired and humbled to work with an amazing group of people that strive to uplift others everyday, both in home care and in yoga.  I emphasize physical alignment in my yoga classes. Strength and flexibility are balanced in order to gain control of the body in a graceful and purposeful manner.

I began practicing yoga in 2014 when I noticed I let myself slip into a very low state of being. I was experiencing a lot of anxious and depressive thoughts, which lead me to make unhealthy choices in my life. I initially sought a doctor who prescribed me to a few different medications, after about a month of being on them I realized they were taking me even farther away from myself. So I stopped taking the medication and began looking for a way to pull myself out of darkness. Starting an asana practice was the answer to that. I began by teaching myself and very quickly tapped into my energy, my higher self. I created my own meditation and yoga practice with the use of crystals and energy work. I learned how to heal myself through the movement of energy. I worked through all the imbalances in my mind, body, and spirit which allowed a whole new way of living to channel through me. In January 2016 I decided to take a 230 hr teacher training through The Yoga Center of Minneapolis. I did this with intentions to inspire others to learn more about themselves, to guide others through their imbalances and chaotic energy.
A class lead by me will include guided meditations, asana poses linked strictly with the flow of your breath, and some references to energy work. I serve as a guide to allow you to be your own healer.

RYT 200 Yoga Instructor

I have been married for 20 years to my best friend and I am the mother of 2 beautiful teenagers. My background includes a degree in psychology with a focus in chemical dependency. I have been teaching yoga for about 10 years and I am a 200RYT with the Yoga Alliance. If you ask me about my yoga journey, I will always tell you that it found me! I was homeschooling my then, 2 young children and feeling like I really needed something for myself. I had an extensive background in dance, so when I stumbled into my first yoga class, I was completely taken with the experience of feeling my limbs again and discovering my breath in a whole new way. Natural progression, someone who saw a yoga teacher in the making and my willingness to jump into the unknown all led me to where I am today. My work extends from teaching classes to all levels to well into the senior community, to 1:1 work with cancer survivors, stroke survivors, bereavement, etc... Compassion, encouragement, patience and acceptance are just some of the key ingredients to my teaching style. We begin where we are at. Just breathe and know that your beautiful yoga story will unfold from there.

This 75 minute yoga class offers both basic and intermediate options and longer holds in order to explore depth in postures. Arm balances and inversions may be explored with guidance. Appropriate for fit beginners and ongoing students.
