Lola Rephann has been practicing yoga for over 20 years. Lola’s teaching is informed by mindfulness, the felt sense, and the breath. Lola studies primarily with Ana Forrest, founder of Forrest Yoga, Erica Mather, a Forrest Yoga guardian in New York City and Corina Benner of Philadelphia, PA. Lola is an e-RYT with over 2,500 hours of teaching experience privately, in group classes, and in corporate settings throughout New York City and New Jersey.
Lola studies Forrest Yoga, Yin Yoga, hatha/vinyasa yoga, thai yoga massage, myo-fascial meridian release, and reiki. Lola seeks to bring each practitioner to a place of stillness and awareness, where healing happens naturally.
Lola’s teaching is a call to meet your edge, to challenge the body-mind intelligently. 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.
Lola is also a practicing bodyworker using the modalities of Thai Yoga Massage, Myo-Fascial Meridian Release and Reiki. She has been studying Thai Massage for over six years and has her Level 3 Reiki Master certification from Olympic Mountain Earth Wisdom Circle.
One of Lola’s gifts 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.
