Thanks for arriving here.
A modern yoga practice can make your body stronger and more flexible but, for me, the connection between body, mind and soul outweighs those lovely bonuses. When we move and find stillness together, we find connection within ourselves and each other. Yoga helps your mind to stay present and within this process you may find moments of peace in your soul. That may sound "far out" or "hippy", but if you attend one of my classes, you'll know I'm the last person to take myself too seriously. Still intrigued? Read on...
For me, the ever-evolving postures (sometimes called 'asanas') literally get me out of my head. Meditation helps me accept what is. Breathwork (pranayama) allows me to stay connected to the 'now' and let go of what no longer serves me. Taking this off the mat and in to my everyday life is a priceless gift.
The joy of sharing this is why I teach.
Like my personal practice, my teaching is ever-evolving. Join me for friendly, inclusive classes and retreats.
My classes are currently indoors and outdoors at different costs (drop-in or class pass) to suit your financial situation.

Retreats, Detox Programmes & Events
Alongside my regular adults and teens classes online and in Brighton & Hove, I teach one-to-ones and private groups. I also cover at several yoga studios in Sussex.
My name is Lucy Small and I’m a deeply passionate yoga teacher, based in Brighton & Hove, East Sussex. I teach welcoming, open-level classes and organise both in-person and online yoga and meditation retreats. I also work with expert nutritionists, chefs and musicians on detox programmes, wellbeing workshops and kirtan (call-and-response mantras to music) events.
Since the early noughties I’ve practiced yoga, initially with a seven-year astanga practice in London, before moving to Hove to explore different styles.
For the past decade I've practiced vinyasa and dynamic flow, yin-yang, meditation, breath work and mindfulness. My classes are a fusion of all of the above, balancing strong postures with stillness, breath work and often chanting (don't be scared... Om).
I pride myself in being thoroughly inclusive and friendly, giving lots of different options for lots of different bodies. I'm also a DJ and radio presenter so my music playlist is meticulously planned. And I sometimes crack bad jokes.
Whether you're a complete beginner, an intermediate or "advanced" yogi, I'd love to help you deepen your practice. I hope to see you on the mat soon.
As someone who has practiced yoga regularly for the last 20 years, I can honestly say Lucy is one of the best yoga teachers I’ve ever had. She has such a calm and honest approach to her teaching and she is incredibly knowledgeable. I just wish I could do her classes every day!
