Lucy has been formally practising yoga asana (postures) since 1992 and meditation since 1999.
She practised and taught for many years before beginning her formal 270 hour yoga teacher training at triyoga in London in 2007, which she passed with distinction in 2009. She joined the triyoga teacher training philosophy faculty in 2014, assisting Carlos Pomeda and assessing teacher trainees’ philosophy work.
Her asana teachers are Anna Ashby, who inspires Lucy’s alignment-focused practice, and Joey Miles, who guides her Ashtanga Vinyasa practice. In 2011, Lucy assisted Anna’s restorative yoga teacher training in Sussex. In 2015, she assisted Joey’s Ashtanga Vinyasa retreat in Turkey, where she also taught philosophy.
Lucy has undertaken further study in meditation, philosophy, Sanskrit and ayurveda in India and southeast Asia. She is a student of Kashmir Shaivism and Advaita Vedanta, and has studied in both the Tibetan and Theravada Buddhist traditions. (You can read more about this on her blog.)
Lucy is passionate about yoga philosophy and will tell endless stories on the subject given half a chance. She channelled some of this zeal into a contribution on Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga for Victoria Woodhall’s book Everyone Try Yoga, published by Kyle Books in January 2013.
Lucy is also a dance artist, where the focus of her research and creation is the meeting point of her practices of yoga, martial arts and postmodern dance. There’s a link to her dance website on the right hand column of this website (down below if you’re reading this on your mobile phone).
