Lori is an incredible practitioner of Thai Yoga Therapy. She is knowledgeable, precise, and intuitive. Her work is confident and accurate. A session leaves you stretched, relaxed and energized. I cant recommend her enough. This is a great gift for yoga practitioners, athletes, anyone who has a physically straining work, sedentary work, or anyone living in NY:-). You're in for a treat!

Lori is the best! Her deep knowledge of Yoga and dance makes getting a Thai massage from her especially great. Since I'm a dancer, too, it's important to me to have someone who understands the special issues of a dancer's body. Highly recommended!

What do you do when your hand is broken in 8 places and 70 stitiches? You don't do yoga but you can do Thai massage. The Thai massage therapy that I received from Lori help my hand heal faster and kept the rest of my body aligned even though my arm was taped against me for six months. Working one-on-one, I was able to have my wrist and part of my hand manipulated and as it became stronger, Lori and I were able to move to other parts of my body so that all my muscles did not atrophy. Her bodywork preserved my flexibility, restored my hand and created a calm to deal the tragedy. Thank you Lori!
