THIS IS ME

A REG­U­LAR IN­SIGHT INTO SUN­SHINE COAST PER­SON­AL­I­TIES

Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | Q&A - LOR­RAINE BOSS, PAS­SION­ATE LYFE FOUNDER

Lor­raine Boss is the founder and owner of Sun­shine Coast-based yoga and pho­tog­ra­phy busi­ness Pas­sion­ate Lyfe. She says her pas­sion lies in teach­ing the art of yoga – a prac­tice that she dis­cov­ered more than two years ago and quickly em­braced to be­come a huge fac­tor in help­ing cre­ate the healthy, mind­ful life­style she wants to live and share with oth­ers.

Last year, Lor­raine be­came a qual­i­fied yoga teacher, meld­ing her love of pho­tog­ra­phy with her pas­sion for the phi­los­o­phy and prac­tice of yoga to launch her unique, com­bined busi­ness.

1 Favourite time of day and why?

Late af­ter­noon around sun­set. I love re­lax­ing by the beach with my fam­ily and of­ten my cam­era. It is usu­ally in hand to take pictures of the beau­ti­ful colours in the sky.

2 What ex­cites you?

Shar­ing the gift of yoga. It’s a gra­tu­itous feel­ing you get af­ter tak­ing stu­dents through a class that brings them back to con­tent­ment within them­selves and their lives.

3 Favourite sport? Player or spec­ta­tor?

I don’t watch a whole lot of sport, but I do en­joy watch­ing ice skat­ing, swim­ming and ten­nis.

4 Best child­hood mem­ory?

My best child­hood mem­ory would be play­ing out­side with my friends who lived in my street and pick­ing and eat­ing lots of trop­i­cal fruits from the back­yard.

5 Where were you born? Pa­pua New Guinea.

6 Where would you like to hol­i­day? Is­tan­bul is the place I would love to hol­i­day.

The his­tory and di­ver­sity in food, life­style and cul­ture sim­ply fas­ci­nates me.

7 Cats or dogs? Do you have a pet? 7

I don’t have any pets but if I did I would most cer­tainly be get­ting a dog.

8 Who are your he­roes?

I have three amaz­ing men in my life – my part­ner Daniel and our two lit­tle boys. They ab­so­lutely bring joy to my life. They are my he­roes.

9 Dream job?

Teach­ing yoga was never some­thing I saw my­self do­ing. But liv­ing and shar­ing this cer­tainly feels so sur­real and very much like a dream, so I guess you could say I have my dream job.

10 What will you be do­ing in 10 years?

Teach­ing yoga, of course. And trav­el­ling and ex­plor­ing more of this beau­ti­ful world that we live in.

11 What’s the best thing about liv­ing on the Sun­shine Coast?

What can I say, we are spoilt for choice here on the Sun­shine Coast.

It’s pro­vided a lot of mean­ing and spir­i­tual growth for me. It’s the per­fect piece of par­adise.
