LUCY RIDLEY

I first tried yoga when I was 13 but it wasn’t until I was at university that I began to build a more regular practice to keep a sense of purpose during some very difficult times. I always assumed that yoga wasn’t really for me, however, as I had zero flexibility and no background in dance or gymnastics. It took me a while, but I remember when it finally clicked that this is not what yoga is about after all!

Yoga has become invaluable in supporting my physical, emotional and mental health, but for many years I was absolutely terrified of yoga studios, classes and teachers. I now find an incredible sense of joy in helping people navigate their way to and through a yoga practice, and aim to make my classes as inclusive and enjoyable as possible.

Since my early 20s I have enjoyed exploring a variety of styles, including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iynengar, Kundalini, Aerial and Yin. My classes are a slow flow with elements of these practices (excluding aerial!) and inspired by anything new I learn week-to-week. I completed my 200-hour foundation training in 2017 and took a further 100-hour training in Yin and Advanced Anatomy in 2018.
