About Lucy Allen

Whether you are new to yoga, looking to deepen your practise or want to de-stress - I would love to help : ) My training is in Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga so I teach classes for both styles but some students also really enjoy doing a combination of 'Yin and Yang' to experience the benefits of both. Vinyasa Yoga is influenced by Ashtanga yoga and we can build up to a dynamic flow sequence moving from one pose to the next focusing on aligning the breath through each movement. Vinyasa is perfect if you want a good workout as well as improving strength, flexibility and balance. Typically, each class will include a combination of sun salutations, seated and standing poses, balancing postures, forward and backbends and for more advanced students, inversions and arm balances. I teach with an emphasis on alignment and moving between postures safely. I use straps and blocks to assist you in the poses and combine this with some hands on assists to encourage and guide your body. The class will be tailor made and adjusted to your body, your experience and anything that you are particularly wanting to focus on. Yin Yoga is a series of seated postures that focus on the connective tissue in the hips, pelvis and lower spine. It is a slower practise which includes holding the postures for a longer period (typically 2-6 minutes) focussing on stillness. I bring props for this class to support your body where required in any of the postures. These also add to a more comfortable and relaxing experience. The aim of Yin is to completely release and let go, both physically and emotionally. I started practising Yin about 3 years ago and it has transformed my flexibility and genuinely changed the way I deal with emotional stress - I'm a huge advocate for Yin (as you can tell!) and love incorporating it into classes. Depending on each student's individual interests I will completely tailor the style of yoga to help you get as much as possible out of the lessons. My aim is to always guide you into new areas to stretch and challenge both your mind and body.

Amy S.'s review on Nov 13, 2017

Lucy did a great intro session for me at my flat before we commit to an on-going arrangement. She is a really enthusiastic and warm teacher and her professional approach made the whole experience really easy. I’m looking forward to starting my weekly lessons, improving in Vinyasa and learning lots more about Yin yoga! Thanks Lucy!

About my yoga practice I first tried yoga in 2001, after practising gymnastics for six years. What started as a physical practice to maintain flexibility, led me to fall in love with the practice and explore yoga on a much deeper level and developing a regular meditation practice. Over the years,
