Village of Islands Yoga founder, Lori Dye E-RYT 200, YACEP, is originally from Ottawa, Canada. She travelled the United States for 18 months, teaching yoga all over, and now calls the Florida Keys her home, where she has connected with a sense of commUNITY. She has been practicing yoga for over 30 years and it is truly her way of being. Her love of yoga lies in the magic of the breath, the harmony of internal peace & joy and the physical benefits of the daily practice; this love emanates through her teaching.
After completing her first 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program at Upward Dog Yoga Centre in Ottawa, Canada in 2015, Lori became a member of Yoga Alliance. She has continued to grow as a student and teacher through continuous yoga teacher trainings, including her most recent 200-hour Hatha Yoga and Ayurveda teacher training with Jai Wellness in Costa Rica, July 2021. She has taught nearly 3000 hours of group classes, private sessions, workshops, retreats, and guided imagery sessions. She also finds continuous growth through practicing, and teaching different styles of yoga at many different yoga shalas throughout this continent. In addition to practicing and teaching yoga, she is also a Life / Health Coach, Hypnotherapist, and teaches Life Coaching courses online at a holistic college.
Lori is known for her warm and inviting teaching style. She engages and challenges students to be mindful, connect with breath-guided movement, and listen to their bodies. She enjoys bringing stillness and movement together with breath on the mat. She offers modifications in her classes, making yoga accessible to all.
Lori has taught yoga at studios, shalas and beaches in Canada, New York, Vermont, South Carolina, Arizona, Florida, and Costa Rica.
