Lori Arrechea, Certified Feng Shui Consultant
Lori has always loved decorating and organizing. Growing up in a military family, she spent her formative years moving, and living in a new home every few years. Her bedroom became her haven, and she was able to make each new place feel comfortable.
Lori is also a graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, in which she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Fashions and Marketing. She worked for many years in home product development as a liaison between buyers and designers for department stores throughout the country.

Many who enter the studio say “the energy feels so good here”!
Basic Principles of Feng Shui
Feng Shui translates to “wind-water” and refers to the ancient Chinese practice of adapting our living spaces to the flow of energy known as chi, so that we live in harmony with the natural world around us. By implementing the concepts of Tao or “the way of the universe”, Yin and Yang which are complementary opposites, and the Five Element Theory using metal, wood, water, fire, and earth; we can adapt our living space to feel good and promote balance in all areas of our life.
Tween Girls (10-12)
Learn to Stand Strong with confidence as they navigate the social challenges of intermediate/middle school. They discover how yoga & mindfulness practices can build physical strength and flexibility, as well as calm their nerves, settle their mind, relax their body, and help manage their emotions. The girls enjoy yoga, partner poses, mat chats (short mindful lessons), brief meditations, mantras, and breath exercises throughout each class. (Girls ages 10-12).
Tween Boys (10-12)
Learn how yoga & mindfulness practices can help them to be Fit, Focused & Chill just like the athletes they admire. Boys face the same social challenges as girls at this age, yet they respond differently. With this course, the boys will learn how taking a mindful pause can help them make good choices, manage impulses, calm nerves, sustain attention, and not be so hard on themselves. Through fun movement games, obstacle courses, yoga, mindful moment practices, and breath exercises, the boys gain confidence and build resiliency. (Boys ages 10-12)

These practices provide a fun and engaging way to help youth with a variety of diagnosis and developmental delays (such as: ADD, ADHD, Anxiety, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, and Down Syndrome), to improve body awareness, physical and mental strength, and their ability to balance emotions.
