September Yogi of the Month

Posted on 9/1/2013 by YogaDownload .com in Lucy Alves yogi of the month

Meet our September Yogi of the Month, Lucy Alves. Lucy has been practicing yoga for over 20 years, and once practiced yoga in an ancient Roman fort!

What is your hometown and where do you live now?
Middlewich UK

What do you love about yoga?
I love the fact that it keeps me focussed and calm. I love that it allows me to be aware of my body and who I am, that I am supple and fit, a lean, mean yoga machine! :-)

How long have you been practicing?
 I've been practicing yoga for over 20 years now and still going strong.

What are your favorite/preferred styles of yoga to practice?
I love Ashtanga, but really? I like it all.

Share a little bit about why you love
Why I love YogaDownload? Well, for the simple reason it inspires me to rotate poses in my classes and your content.

What is your favorite yoga pose?
Salamba Sirsasana or the supported headstand. Yeah, I love to feel the flow of energy going from the feet to the head.

What is your least favorite yoga pose?
Cobblers Pose. I know it is silly, but my right hip will not open up fully anymore and thus I can never get a perfect cobbler.

Do you have any favorite music to practice to?
Earth music, calming, and meditative, unless I'm into a flow session... then I want drums and 'firing up the senses' music.

Any unusual places you've unrolled your mat?
An ancient Roman fort to take pictures for my site (which is still under construction, but we are slowly getting there)
