Hello - I'm Lucy

I remember my own experience as a young mum aged 23, excited and confused in equal measure!

Since then (and with one 'baby' now at University, and my second baby soon to be starting Secondary school!) I've been growing and learning, training and teaching. It's my life's work, and supporting women through their own unique journey is a source of endless joy and wonder. 

I first became a regular practitioner over 19 years ago to sustain my body and mind while working in the corporate world – as I integrated the practices of yoga into my daily life, the profound healing benefits transpired and yoga eventually took over as my full time job.

I am a fully accredited Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. I originally trained to teach yoga with The Life Centre in 2004  and completed my second Teacher Training Diploma under the tutelage of the wonderful Katy Appleton from Appleyoga in 2015. 

 
 

I have over 10 years of teaching experience with a specialism in Women’s Health: 

  • I run Pregnancy and Post Natal Yoga Classes
  • I teach Hypnobirthing in private and group sessions
  • I am a Birth and Postnatal Doula


My birth education and inspiration includes: 

I have had the opportunity to be personally trained by:

  • Janet Balaskas and Alice Charlwood from the Active Birth Centre.
  • Uma Dinsmore Tuli to teach Pregnancy & Birth yoga and Well Women Yoga Therapy.
  • Ingrid Lewis and Francious Freedman from Birthlight to teach Birth Preparation
  • Katherine Graves to teach Hypnobirthing
  • Nadia Narain to teach Postnatal Yoga

As a constant student on this path, I love furthering my knowledge with some of the world's leading practitioners in yoga, philosophy, meditation and energy work, teachers including: Bo Forbes, Judith Lasater, Donna Farhi and Tias Little.

Here's how I help


Becoming a Mother?

Pregnancy is an amazing and empowering time in a woman’s life. The journey leading up to birth is a perfect time to develop your strength physically and mentally, a time to nurture yourself and connect with your baby. I offer balanced and holistic classes that build your inner strength, physically and emotionally. You will strengthen, relax, and learn how  to believe in your bodies and instincts so you can approach this natural process with courage, clear seeing and joy.

If you want some one-to-one support, I work privately with a limited number of clients at a time. This can include your partner and  can be held at my studio in Twickenham, or at your home. 


Are you a new (or not so new) mother? 

When a child is born, so is a Mother.  The postnatal period is one of adjustment and great change and my postnatal classes, workshops and services offer you the space to create greater happiness, insight and fulfilment through the ups and downs of being a mother - supporting you as you consciously grown into mothering life. 


The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.
