LORENZO DORSEY

Pranyama Class w WM-9.jpg

Lorenzo's practice of yoga blossomed from his music background. As a trombone player he studied rhythmic breath. He started practicing meditation and applying the breathing techniques (pranayama) to his passive meditation.

  
In 2012, he was introduced to the practice of yoga to help with a case of vertigo he had experienced. Fascinated by the effect of breath manipulation combined with movement on the layers of the body, he began to develop a pranayama practice that included asanas.


A former practitioner of Bikram yoga, he was led to an Ashtanga yoga class and found the practice and philosophy of the 8 limbs, as described by Patanjali, to be a necessary change to his practice and lifestyle. Lorenzo completed his 200 hour YTTC in Goa, India in April 2015 in order to learn more about Ashtanga Yoga. Since graduating from his teacher training course, he has been a primary teacher, training in Pranayama, Kriyas, Yoga Philosophy, and Meditation to name a few. His asana teaching style includes Ashtanga Primary, Vinyasa flow, and hot yoga.
 

As a student whose lifestyle continues to change since incorporating yoga into his daily routine, he is reminded in the words of Buddha:
"Each morning we are born again. What we do today is which matters most."
