Growing up on a farm in the Pembina Valley near Pilot Mound, I was always running, biking, swimming, milking cows & helping with harvesting, haying & seeding.


I still love being outdoors walking my dog Sadie, gardening, mowing the grass in the summer and travelling to Raleigh, NC for winters where my son, daughter-in-law & granddaughter live. I believe being active and practicing Yin Yoga will prevent the deterioration of my joints so I can keep doing the things I love. 

Lorraine was first certified by the Manitoba Fitness Council in 1992 and has been teaching yoga since 2021.
