Lucy found yoga nine years ago when she was searching for an outlet during a stressful period of study and work. She soon realised that this wasn’t just another fitness class, this was something truly special. A creative soul, Lucy saw yoga as an art form, a form of self expression, and an opportunity to spend some quality time with herself!
Fortunate enough to take a sabbatical in beautiful Bali, Lucy delved further into her personal practice with guidance from various teachers and friends along the way. From there, she embarked on a life changing adventure and travelled to Rishikesh, India, where she trained in Hatha and Vinyasa Flow yoga; an experience that has etched into her mind, and stolen her heart.
The pure joy, acceptance and contentment that yoga has provided Lucy is too good not to share. She has so much gratitude for the opportunity to do so with the Zenko team, and is truly inspired by the incredible community that she has become apart of since walking through the doors at Zenko Buddina. You will find Lucy teaching a dynamic power flow class, combining strong, heat building flows with more gentle, restorative poses that allow students to realise their softness.
Getting to know the Zenko Team
Do you have a mantra/quote that you often turn to?
There are a myriad of quotes and mantras that I love, but this one came to the forefront of my mind. I heard this during one of my first yoga classes, and it stuck.
“If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it's not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.” - Dalai Lama.
How do you fill up your love tank?
Yoga is honestly my number 1 top up. When I’m stressed or upset, it comforts me. When I’m tired and deflated, it lifts me up. When I’m happy and energised, it challenges me. My ultimate top up would be a yoga session, followed by a beautiful breakfast, a long swim in the ocean, and quality time with someone I love.
What advice would you give someone wondering whether to try yoga for the first time?
Just do it! There are a million ways I could try to convince you, but if you’re already reading this, I think you’re pretty much there. Do yourself a favour and roll out the mat, you won’t regret it.
