Lorelle was a late bloomer in fitness and yoga, only seriously becoming involved in the industry in the last seven years. These days, yoga and fitness dominate her out-of-office hours as she transitions from full-time work in the public service, and into spending more and more time at the yoga studio and gym.
Over the last 7 years she has taught freestyle classes, circuit classes, aqua aerobics, and two Les Mills disciplines – CX Worx and Body Balance.
Animals are a big part of her life. She had owned horses for many years and dogs have always formed part of her family. Travel relaxes her and always broadens her perspective on things.
Prior to becoming a Les Mills Body Balance instructor in 2011, Lorelle practised yoga for around 25 years. She later discovered YogaFit, a hatha style founded in yoga, grounded in fitness that aims to make yoga accessible in gyms.
As well as YogaFit, she has completed the YogaFit for Warriors (Trauma-Sensitive yoga) 150 hour training programme. She has also trained in Core Yoga in past 12 months and completed the 285 hour training in Vinyasa Flow with Yoga Trinity.
Yoga has aided her own recovery from depression and physical injury. She enjoys sharing yoga with others so they too may find their own path to health and inner peace.
Lorelle teaches Vinyasa Hatha with a focus on conscious breathing as the way to connect the body and the mind. The language she uses in class is inclusive, action-orientated and positive.
Students are reminded to “check-in” with their bodies throughout each class, to be present and to find their place in each pose at that moment.
