Morocco Primary teacher
Helping her students find the grounding energy, strength, personal awareness and growth that yoga provides.
Tori believes in the journey of yoga. She is always amazed by the power and strength yoga provides to all students both on and off the mat. She strives to aid her students in finding a deeper personal connection through each pose and breath by focusing her teaching on a strong foundation in alignment and body awareness.
In 2013 Tori completed her first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training, near her hometown in Connecticut, USA, as a way to deepen her practice and keep her mind and body in check. Without the intention of teaching, Tori soon found herself feeling a desire to share all that she learned and experienced with others. The grounding energy and strength that yoga provides has been the best medicine for Tori. And she deeply values both personal awareness and growth in the journey.
As a lover of languages and cultures Tori soon took to traveling. Through her travels, she has had the privilege of sharing her love for life and the journey of yoga through leading classes, workshops and retreats in the United States, Southeast Asia, and Morocco to students of all levels, physical abilities and cultural backgrounds.
Towards the end of 2015 Tori found herself ready for a change from Southeast Asia and moved to the Taghazout Bay area on the Southern Coast of Morocco to teach yoga.
Quickly she took to the simple and natural life of village living and soon thereafter decided Morocco is her home.
Always a student Tori takes every advantage of growing her knowledge by learning from all experiences including every student, class, practice and meditation she does.
Completing her Level 3 Reiki certification Tori also believes that incorporating other styles of healing and energy work can only compliment the journey and process more.
A few months later Tori attended and completed the Shades of Yoga 300 hour Teacher Training and up skilled under the Shades of Yoga founder Tracey Rohan-Irwin. Tori is now the Primary Teacher for all Shades of Yoga programs offered in Morocco.
She has also completed a 200 hour teaching certification in Anusara yoga, and partaken in shorter trainings in Ashtanga, Anusara, Hatha, Power Vinyasa, Vinyasa and Yin yoga styles, as well as many workshops on various meditation and pranayama techniques.
