Thanks for arriving here.
Yoga can make your body stronger and more flexible but, perhaps more importantly, it trains your mind to stay present- to help it stop flitting from past to future. 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. In a good way. Breathwork (pranayama) forces me to stay connected to the 'now'. Meditation helps me accept what is. Taking this off the mat and in to my everyday life is a priceless gift.
The joy of sharing all of this is why I teach.
Like my personal practice, my teaching is ever-evolving, moving with the times and going with the flow. Join me either live on zoom or in-person for friendly, inclusive classes.
Always contact me if you are struggling financially and we can work something out.

Detox, Yoga & Meditation Programmes, Retreats & Kirtans
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 to co-organise detox programmes, wellbeing workshops and kirtan (call-and-response mantras to music) groups and 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 and mindfulness. My classes are a fusion of all of the above, balancing powerful flows with stillness, breath work and often chanting (don't be scared... Om).
I pride myself on 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.
