Lorna Knox

Lorna is a founding member of Ananda Portland and a disciple of Yogananda for 38 years. “Every moment on this path is a blessing, with opportunities for growth, service and joy.” Lorna serves Ananda as the Co-Director of the Portland temple, a minister, lightbearer, teacher and spiritual counselor. She loves to sing in the choir and teaches with an emphasis on the practical tools for spiritual living that yoga gives us. “My experience as a nurse, teacher, wife, mother, writer and even a Home Depot sales associate have all shown me the path of Self-Realization is an eternal spiritual truth that is relevant, alive and given to devotees for this age, specifically, to raise our consciousness and to awaken our highest potential.”
