Yoga Practice

Lorna has been a yoga practitioner since 1999. Due to experiencing the positive psychological and physical benefits of yoga for herself, Lorna then trained as a yoga teacher and has explored various yoga traditions including Hatha, Iyengar, Scaravelli, Yin and Ashtanga. Lorna continues her yoga training, working with many people in the field of trauma informed and trauma sensitive yoga. The research of Bessel van der Kolk clinically validates trauma sensitive yoga as a treatment for complex trauma and PTSD. This is by far the safest form of yoga Lorna has found to date and has foundations in Trauma Theory, Attachment Theory, Neuroscience and Hatha Yoga with an emphasis on mind body connection, movement and breathing.

Lorna has worked with many international teachers including Donna Farhi, Shiva Rea, Sarah Powers, Ana Forrest and various other teachers in India, Sri Lanka and America. This enables Lorna to gain insight into the various approaches to Yoga, so they can then be related to her clinical work in a simple, safe and nurturing way.

Lorna is a Registered Psychotherapist with UKCP & BACP.
