An Advanced Yin Yoga teacher and Yoga Therapist, Lily strives to bring her personal experience of the transformative and healing effects of yoga and meditation to others. She teaches body positive yoga that places function over aesthetics, and holds a core belief that yoga is for everyone. She is committed to bringing the practice to communities across London, and works with charities including The Refugee Council and Crisis.
She strives to create a safe and inviting space in which students are empowered to discover their own practice, and encourages the experience of yoga to be a complete holistic system of mindfulness, both on and off the mat. A writer and journalist, she frequently writes and comments on yoga, body image, and wellness, and has featured in Women's Health, Vogue, The Guardian, iD, and Dazed Beauty. Lily is also Head of Yoga & Wellbeing at Raw Press, and works as a Holistic Stress Management Life Coach.
Lily's meditative and inclusive classes integrate techniques from Hatha, Yin, Yoga Therapy, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Restorative, and Chakra yoga, along with her own former dance training and spiritual traditions from East & West.
She encourages students to find their own flow and alignment, return to the breath, join mind with movement, be kind to their bodies, and have fun!
