Lucy has been practising yoga for over 15 years, and finally trained as a yoga teacher in early 2015. 'Yoga' literally translates as 'union', usually taken to mean the linking of breath, body and mind. For Lucy that union is also the meeting of the physical and the mental. Of clarity and acceptance. Through practising asana we develop greater appreciation of all that we are, physically and mentally. Your body is the most incredible instrument you will ever own, and the only one you will have the privilege to inhabit. Through practising meditation we find space to simply exist without being bombarded by the many things constantly clamouring for our attention. Space to consider before finding yourself reacting to external events in a destructive or mentally exhausting way. Space to find and nurture yourself. Space to be you.
Yoga teaches us to accept, embrace and celebrate ourselves exactly as we are. You are stronger and more awesome than you know. <3
