About Lucy Watson

Lucy first discovered yoga over ten years ago and has been a dedicated student ever since. In recent years, the “yoga bug” got a tighter grip of her, and combined with Lucy’s well established passion for yoga, her journey led her to complete the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation course and subsequently the YMCA Yoga Teaching Diploma, where she met Julie. Amazed at the “unity” that yoga brought to her mind, her body and her breath, Lucy deepened her understanding through additional studies and various yoga retreats with her yoga guru, Granville Cousins, where alignment and precision is key, a focus which has been passed on into Lucy’s teachings. Lucy also recently completed a teacher training qualification in Restorative yoga with Triyoga, London.

To compliment her yoga studies, Lucy is also a Certified Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Certified Practitioner of Time-Line Therapy. These qualifications have allowed Lucy to explore Life Coaching and Business Coaching to help clients set SMART goals for their future and eradicate any limiting beliefs which may be standing in their way.

More recently, Lucy set up her own Yoga business, LOTUS WELLBEING. Lucy teaches yoga from the heart, and her own journey is reflected in her spiritual approach to teaching, with mindfulness meditation being a key focus in her classes.
