Lucy Jarvis, Ashtanga Yoga Norwich, UK

 "Yoga has become a huge part of my life and a lifeline when I’ve needed it.  The practice has given me something special and being able to pass even just a little of what I’ve learnt on to others is a privilege. I am by no means the most experienced teacher or yogi but I strongly believed that if everyone did just a little bit of yoga daily, the world would be a happier place.I have always strongly believed that women have so much untapped potential. I’ve had great opportunities in my life so far, because of my upbringing - I've studied, set up companies, travelled and been independent.  Helping mothers in India to support their families and become empowered to be the best they can be is something yoga has given me, and for that I am grateful.”

Lucy ‘found’ yoga (or yoga found her!) in her later 20s, during a stressful time in her life and she hasn’t looked back since. She has been practicing Ashtanga for 7 years and become increasingly passionate about introducing others to the practice.

Originally from London, Lucy graduated from the University of East Anglia, in Norwich, with a degree in art and architectural history. A few years later she went on to gain a Masters in Building Conservation and in 2010, along with 6 others, Lucy set up a successful London-based heritage consultancy. Yoga has proved vital in maintaining a sense of balance and perspective in her busy day-to-day life.

Her lifelong interest in sport further led her to explore how yoga can help athletes, both physically, helping them maintain/improve strength and mobility, and also as a way of improving focus and mental stamina.
Lucy has recently started to cultivate an Ashtanga yoga community in Norwich, where she lives in the UK.
