Lucy teaches yoga in the spirit of ‘the viniyoga of yoga’, an approach to the specific application of yoga for individuals developed by TKV Desikachar. She brings to this a particular interest in restorative yoga (as developed from BKS Iyengar by Judith Hanson Lasater) and in yoga for women.
Lucy has been running yoga groups for pregnant women and babies here in North Northumberland since 2009. These classes include prenatal yoga, birth preparation, postnatal yoga, baby yoga and massage, relaxation and meditation for mothers and babies and opportunities for friendship and connection.
An opportunity to immerse yourself in a complete practice of active and restorative asana (postures), pranayama (breathing) and meditation. Each yoga day will be structured around a philosophical theme and is aimed at experienced practitioners and teachers. Accommodation is available for anyone that would like to travel from further afield.
Sundays 8pm - Weekly online yoga class with Lucy. Practices are chosen to be accessible for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. The focus is on yoga techniques for relaxation and efficient breathing. Classes are supported by a weekly newsletter containing video and audio resources and inspiration to create your own 'space to be' each and every day at home.
In restorative yoga practice we use props to support the body in positions of comfort and ease, to facilitate stillness. After even just a few minutes of this supported stillness it is possible to feel a deep sense of relief.
As a way of marking the seasons we have been creating beach labyrinths as a family and we would like to invite you to join us.
Each session will begin with a period of collecting stones, shells and other natural materials to mark out and decorate the path of the labyrinth. We will then gather for some movement and meditation before embarking on our individual journeys into the labyrinth.
