Faculty & School
I left the corporate world behind in 2010 to share my love of yoga with others. I teach a dynamic and creative style of yoga that awakens strength through awareness in energetic alignment. My classes weave in the spiritual aspect of the practice through chanting, meditation, and insightful offerings on yogic philosophy.
I am deeply committed to my personal practice, which is the foundation of my teaching. I have studied various styles of yoga & meditation around the world with an array of respected teachers. I share my knowledge through classes, workshops, and teacher trainings. My deep passion for travel is brought to others through annual retreats in international destinations.
I have been a teacher and a trainer for over a decade. My passion is to study and teach the art and science of breath, movement, and stillness. I strive to create a space where students can experience themselves fully. I believe that yoga can help shift our consciousness to a place of true integration. It is my intention to share yoga with precision, creativity, and authenticity. I thoroughly enjoy daily meditation, dynamic movement, and connecting with his community. You can spot me hanging out in my hometown of Sacramento California on my yoga mat or practicing martial arts.

Where we´ll be
Spain is an intoxicating country, known for its diverse culture, stunning landscapes, and incredible food. The region of Andalucía is famous for its spectacular snow-capped mountain ranges, historical monuments, and high-spirited people who exude warmth and hospitality.
This area is a simmering blend of diversity - the result of hundreds of years of conquests, invasions, and settlements. In modern times, that translates into an exotic, mysterious, and awe-inspiring mix of Arabic, Persian, Jewish, Moor, African, and European influences. Granada has it all: the beautiful countryside, sunny Mediterranean beaches nearby, Turkish baths, Moroccan bazaars, flamenco, and tapas - oh my!
On your days off you could do any of this extra activities organized by Lucia Yoga:
A trip into the city of Granada
Explore the red palace of Alhambra
Visit the gypsy caves for a flamenco performance
Relax at the tropical Salobreña Beach
