Lucy is an Ascot based yoga teacher. She lives and breathes yoga!
She loves to practice, to learn, and to share her yogic experiences with others. Yoga has been an essential tool in helping her to manage anxiety, depression and stress. It has enabled her to see that she is responsible for her own happiness and decisions, and that everyone deserves to see this for themselves.
Lucy first started practicing yoga via YouTube videos and iPad apps in 2008. On moving to London in 2012 she practiced at Fitness on Fire in Old Street. Here she regularly attended classes for two years with Austeja Pozeraite and Daniela Olds and was inspired by their love, enthusiasm and creative approach to yoga. Halfway through 2014 Lucy made a big decision to leave London - it was a difficult but positive move and one which ultimately led her to follow her yoga dream. She spent the next 6-months working at a big PR company in London and focusing on her own home yoga practice. During her long commutes and quiet practices she came to the decision that the "normal" life wasn't her calling, and decided to take a leap of faith...and thus begun her journey to becoming a yoga teacher!
Lucy initially trained in Januray 2015 at Kranti Yoga School in Patnem, Goa, India. Here she learnt an amazing amount of valuable yogic knowledge from experienced teachers, including the internationally respected Magda Procner, gained her 200 hour Yoga Alliance certificate, and began to build a wonderful network of yoginis and yogis. She is now qualified to teach Ashtanga yoga, vinyasa flows, power flows, meditation and pranayama.
In August 2017 she added to her training by completing a 50 hour Yin Yoga course (also Yoga Alliance registered), with the inspirational & incredibly knowledgeable Sebastian Pucelle & Murielle Burellier. This course had a heavy focus on Anatomy, Theory & Practice of Yin Yoga. Lucy enjoyed this training so much that she has since also completed Sebastian & Murielle's Module 2 in July 2018 on the Meridian theory (this was another 50hrs course).
Since qualifying she has taught 1,000s of classes in a variety of places including yoga studios, gyms, schools, workplaces, privately and in local halls. As well as running a number of independent classes, she is a regular teacher at Inspire Hot Yoga studio in Maidenhead.
Her style of teaching focuses on safe and effective postures, encouraging students to listen to their own bodies, and creating an environment where they feel relaxed, happy and loved.
