Lucie initially came to yoga when suffering with mental health issues. Having worked in the fashion industry for six years, she left due to having no work-life balance and feeling exhausted. Yoga helped her to escape the stressful working environment, allowing her to feel balanced and present. She hopes her classes help students to get out of their heads and bring awareness to their bodies thus enabling them to move intuitively, whether it’s challenging themselves to push through or taking a step back and moving more slowly and gently.

Ana Maria, originally from the wild windswept West coast of Ireland, is a yogi, traveler, barefoot runner, and clinical massage therapist.
She has a background in fine art, but came to find a true home in the practice of yoga, mindfulness and wellbeing. In 2013 she began teaching yoga while living in her mothers homeland of Guatemala.
Her approach is rooted in a functional movement perspective. Anatomical variations mean that everyone’s yoga practice will be as unique as them. She offers options and variations to allow you to find the practice that best suits you each day you show up on your mat.
In this way she invites you to be truly present with your body, in order to strengthen the mind body connection and to build a practice that is nourishing, strengthening and calming for your body, mind and spirit.
She has trained extensively with world renowned teachers Simon Borg-Olivier, Bianca Machliss, Cindy Lee, Anna Ashby and Jo Phee. Ana Maria is so grateful to all of her incredibly knowledgeable teachers.
