Lucie was first introduced to yoga when traveling in Asia about 20 years ago. Yoga has established Lucie’s passion for well-being and inspired her to study Craniosacral therapy which successfully places alignment as the base of all well-being while focusing on primary respiration. Practicing Craniosacral therapy in combination with teaching yoga in London, France and New York has conditioned Lucie to become a very versatile AQUA instructor. Lucie’s classes focus on cardiovascular strengthening while incorporating some very effective stretching. Feeling “wiped-out or sore” is not the goal. By the end of Lucie’s class you will feel rejuvenated and conditioned. She thoroughly enjoys assembling her music compilation to compliment the workout and keep you inspired from beginning to end. Lucie’s class is perfect for beginners, yoga lovers and riders with injuries.
