My name is Loribeth and I was drawn to Yoga for its many benefits. What began as a way to alleviate debilitating pain and increase range of motion, turned into a spiritual journey which changed my life. I began privates, and after a while felt comfortable enough to participate in group classes due to the dedicated Yoga instructors that worked with me at Om Shanti. Yoga and Reiki had such a profound effect on me that I eventually became a certified RYT200 hour Yoga instructor and Reiki Master teacher myself. I love sharing and holding space for students and being a part of the journey of so many beautiful souls.
