Lascel was born in Whitechapel in London's East End. It was during his studies as a keen Music Technology student that a traumatic life changing event eventually led him to his passion for teaching yoga.
Originally trained as a Hot Hatha Yoga Instructor at Bikram's Yoga College of India in L.A. Lascel then went on to share his passion for teaching the world famous 26/2 set sequence far and wide. Initially teaching all over the U.K. he then lived life as a traveling teacher, teaching in Europe, The USA, Australia, Asia and eventually India. It was on a return trip from Australia Lascel was presented with an opportunity to retrain under Michelle Pernetta, one of the UK's most established, experienced senior teachers. He went onto become a regular on the schedule at studios across London for the hugely popular brand of dynamic, modern, inclusive, mixed levels yoga at "Fierce Grace". A growing interest in the philosophy and foundations of yoga as a whole, as well as a continued and growing interest in the modern western interpretation and anatomical focus of asana, eventually led him to take an impulsive extended one way trip to India. He traveled and taught for a few months and eventually enrolled on another teacher training in South Goa. After completing an advanced 300 hour course in modern Ashtangha/Vinyasa, Lascel stayed on at the school initially as an assistant teacher for the 200 hour teacher training course to fully immerse himself in his new found love for Ashtanga, Pranayama, Meditation and Yogic Anatomy. He soon went on to becoming a lead teacher on the 300 hour teacher training course that he had completed prior.
Having experienced first hand both the huge physical but more importantly psychological benefits that can come with a yoga practice, Lascel is passionate about sharing these benefits with as many people as possible. He believes that yoga should be accessible for all from the die hard, daily, borderline obsessive intense practitioner of all things yoga, to the guy that heard after 20 years as a plasterer and 4 pints at his local, that a spot of yoga might sort his shoulder out. Lascel's 1000+ hours in various teacher trainings, along with many years of experience as a full time teacher assisting practitioners of all abilities and dispositions, along with his continued passion for his own practice and continued learning is what inspires him to teach from the heart in a compassionate, dynamic, fun and inclusive style.
