Her personal practice began more than 13 years ago from her first class she was dedicated to deepening her practice as she felt that defining effect she experienced through yoga was a balancing of her energy. She continued to explore the energizing effect yoga brought to her physically whilst having a relaxing effect on her mind. She knew that this is exactly what the city needed and was one of the pioneers to host private classes in 2005, this was when yoga was only beginning to be introduced in Hong Kong. She ensures each class brings that balancing effect, bringing equilibrium between the active and passive, the yin and the yang, components of ourselves by being present to what we need in the present moment.
Lorraine has recently been certified as a level 2 Reiki practitioner and can use this ancient art of healing by aligning the body’s energy to soothe and release chronic pain.
