Lula is a RYT 200 teacher, registered with The Yoga Alliance. She began her yoga journey yoga 15 years ago and soon discovered the healing benefits of yoga, noticing how rejuvenated, energised and calm she felt.
She spent 7 years exploring acrobatic aerial arts, partner acrobatics and functional movement. Lula soon found Vinyasa Yoga, finding its creative and dynamic nature a great support to the high strength work of acrobatics.
At the heart of Vinyasa flow is the connection between breath and movement. This creates greater mental clarity, more mindfulness and awareness in the body.
Lula’s classes are grounded in strength, anatomical detail (therapeutic alignment) and mindfulness. She offers detailed verbal cues, emphasising breath and correct alignment to reduce injury and support expansion and growth in postures. She offers a safe space for students to grow themselves and their practise.
