“Your body is a divine stream, as is your spirit, when your two great rivers

merge, one voice is found and the earth applauds in excitement.”

St John of the Cross


Lucy, who has a Phd in Mindfulness, has been standing on her head ever since she could stand on her feet. Her love for the practice and teaching of yoga has taken her, over the last 20 years, through Vinyasa Flow, to Yin Yoga and Mindfulness. She is now primarily a mindfulness and compassion trainer, with a doctorate in Mindfulness and Education.

Her current focus is on bringing yoga and mindfulness practices to those engaged in social change, such as teachers and activists, giving them the skills to alleviate stress and increase resilience, and enabling them to work with compassion and presence. She runs Heart-Mind Consultancy and leads courses and retreats around Southern Africa, particularly the Tara Rokpa Centre. She practices with the Karma Kagyu School of Buddhism and attends regular meditation retreats. Her current research area is on Joyful Activism, learning from the archetype of the Bodhisattva.

She has been lucky enough to study with some wonderful yoga teachers, such as Desiree Rumbaugh, Seane Corne and Sarah Powers, as well as the extraordinary Buddhist mindfulness masters, Thich Nhat Hanh, Jack Kornfield and Rob Nairn.

A retreat participant once said, “Lucy is a warm, wise and wonderful teacher, embodying fully the heart-mind connections she gently encourages in others. What she offers comes directly from her heart, enabling her to provide exactly what is needed spontaneously in the moment.”

Her light-hearted approach to teaching allows participants to learn through a joyful, yet deeply transformative practice.
