Forrest Yoga AssociateEmail:
Lola Rephann has been practicing yoga for over 15 years. Lola’s teaching is informed by mindfulness, listening to the body, and moving from a place of spirit. Lola studies primarily with Paula Tursi of Reflections Yoga in New York City, Ana Forrest, and Erica Mather, a Forrest Yoga guardian in New York City. Lola is an e-RYT at the 200-hour level. She has amassed well over 1,000 hours of teaching experience privately, in group classes, and in corporate settings throughout New York City and Hudson County, NJ.
Lola studies Forrest Yoga, Yin Yoga, hatha/vinyasa yoga, thai yoga massage, and shamanic reiki. Lola seeks to bring each practitioner to a place of stillness and awareness, where healing happens naturally.
Lola’s classes are a call to meet your edge, to challenge the body-mind intelligently. A typical class would begin with pranayama and/or meditation, move into deep core integration work to heat the body and the muscles of the core, followed by a strong, yet well-paced, standing pose sequence. Lola weaves a psychological, physical, or spiritual thread of inquiry into each class, and often asks students to observe all three layers of experience during their practice. As a teacher, Lola hopes to guide her students to a deeper relationship with themselves, where inquiry leads to awareness, and awareness leads to transformation.
One of Lola’s gifts that she uses extensively in her teaching is that people feel comfortable in her presence, allowing them to reveal themselves, to be seen, to drop shields, and to heal. Lola is honored to be able to work with people in such an intimate and personal way.
