A B O U T   O R L E E

Orlee is a yogi, meditator and dog lover. She is a Yoga Alliance registered teacher, certified meditation instructor and leads mindfulness classes to both young people and adults. 

Known for her combination of focus in alignment and yogic philosophy approach to teaching and practicing yoga, she encourages self-acceptance, interconnectedness, curiosity and stillness in her classes. Orlee’s great understanding of the body in movement began with a base in dance, aerial arts, solace in yoga and her own injuries.  Studying further, she completed a Yoga Alliance 200hr Yoga Teacher Training and then extensive training in anatomy with Russ Pfeifer. 

Fascinated with how the brain, mind and body proper work together, Orlee enrolled in Dan Siegel’s Interpersonal Neurobiology and UCLA’s Mindfulness Awareness Practices I & II. Having to dip out of work for almost a year in 2016 for some surgeries, she explored stillness deeply. Completing a 400hr Masters Certificate in Meditation through the DEN Meditation, she firmly believes in the healing powers of quieting the mind, in turn healing physical and emotional ailments. Certified to teach mindfulness to young people through Mindful Schools, she carries out her passion in teaching to our next big decision makers. 

Orlee has assisted multiple yoga teacher trainings, leads lectures in anatomy and history of yoga, and has taught in adventurous scenes such as Tulum, Vancouver, and Ojai.

She is currently dwelling in Los Angeles, CA with her sausage dog, Louie and is excited to share yoga and realize happiness together as a community. Currently she offers yoga, meditation and coaching in form of weekly classes and one-on-one (in person or remotely) sessions for adults and kids ages 6 and on. Orlee leads events speaking on leading a life with present moment awareness. Subscribe for her newsletter to stay updated.
