Family Yoga & Massage

Once again, I’m teaming up with a massage therapist (this time, my step mum!) to bring you another nourishing weekend workshop. This year, more than ever, we wanted to share our experience of the healing power of massage and yoga in family groups.
I can say homeschooling has been a pretty stressful experience for us. I certainly feel an imbalance in the time I spend connecting with my children on a mental versus physical level.
This workshop is going to fun, lighthearted and informative! Open to all ages and experience.
Please contact me for payment and login details.
“The workshop was fantastic! I left the group feeling positive, happy, relaxed and inspired!” Charlee

‘My experience of Middle Path Yoga has been entirely positive…Lucy’s teaching style is invariably encouraging and supportive to all members of our group irrespective of age and experience.’ Dr. Sarah Montagnon

Yoga for People with Learning Disabilities

What is Yoga?

Yoga is an ancient practice that originated in India around 5000 years ago. The word yoga stems from the Sanskrit word “Yuj” meaning to yoke, join or unite. Yoga is best known in the West as a set of practices that include stretching and strengthening the body, breathing and deep relaxation.

The Middle Path

The term ‘The Middle Path’ (or ‘Way’) refers to the Buddha’s discovery that the way to enlightenment could not be found in extreme asceticism nor in self-indulgence. He used the analogy of a sitar to demonstrate this idea: if the string is stretched too tight it breaks, if it is too loose it will not play.


I have been teaching yoga for 18 years now but it has always been a part of my life. I was lucky enough to have a yoga teaching mum so my brother and I were brought up using visualisation to help us sleep and mindful breathing to help with headaches and injuries. As a young adult, after being diagnosed as epileptic, I was given a daily yoga practice by Swami Niranjanananda. Having experienced the benefits of yoga first hand I went to India and South East Asia to study, and subsequently teach yoga.

I first studied Satyananda yoga with my mum and then with the Sivananda organisation in 2002. I moved to France, to live and work at an ashram in order to experience yoga as a complete lifestyle. I went on to live and teach in Paris for three years including four months spent living at the Centre International Sivananda de Yoga Vedanta. I have been teaching children’s yoga since 2003 having trained with Calm for Kids. More recently I have enjoying studying with Donna Farhi and am inspired by Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers.

I am also a student of Zen Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh and have spent many inspiring days at his retreat centre Plum Village in the south of France. His teachings on mindfulness in daily life greatly influence the classes I teach. I taught meditation as part of a yoga teacher training course and am now working on a new project to help bring mindfulness into mainstream education.

Sun salutation with mantras

I usually start my classes with the Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar in Sanskrit). It is a fantastic physical warm up but more than that it provides a lovely way of reconnecting the ‘head, heart and hand’ as Swami Satyananda would say. As we move through the familiar sequence, consciously synchronising our breath with the postures, the mind quietens down, the emotions settle and the body releases unnecessary tensions. Listening to the mantras can help to enhance this process.
