Go Back

Lorena Smalley


I have enjoyed fitness in many different ways my whole life however my own personal wellness journey began back in 1995, when I enrolled in my first course to become a group fitness instructor. From the very first class – I knew I had found my passion, my purpose and my path. I am so passionate about inspiring others to live their best life. It is also my passion to stay inspired myself so that I can live my best life too. 

In 2002 I embarked on what I like to refer to as my Soul Journey when I registered for a weekend course to see if I wanted to become a Yoga instructor…this set off a lifelong love affair with Yoga. Not only did this begin a process of learning so much more about my body, my mind and my soul but it allowed me to bring balance to my life. To be able to teach this connection to others truly has been a dream come true for me.The natural progression was to also certify myself in both personal training and life coaching

Over the years my passion for learning all I can about the body, the mind and the Soul has taken on a life of its own.  Teaching and sharing my knowledge has been such a rewarding path. 

In 2017 I started guiding Yoga retreats in various different places of the world and this path eventually led me to the Chopra education program which has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I’ve become a fully certified coach in both Chopra Meditation and Chopra Health (Ayurveda). 

This has enabled me to coach others physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically and spiritually – which in my opinion is the way to live our best life! Over-all I feel incredibly blessed to live and teach all these aspects of wellness to so many willing participants in this lifetime.
