LORENZO DORSEY

Pranyama Class w WM-9.jpg

Lorenzo's practice of yoga blossomed from his music background. As a trombone player he studied rhtymic 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. Facinated by the affect of breath manipulation combined with moevement on the layers of the body, he begin to develop a pranayama practice that included asanas.
A former practitioner of Bikram yoga, he was led to a Ashtanga yoga class and found thepractice 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 asanateaching 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."
