YOGA TEACHER CHAT

🔥

New on YouTube this week: Claire talks to Lu Blue, founder of Sober Yoga, about how yoga and mindfulness can support sobriety and recovery from addition.

🔥

Lu found their way to yoga in 2001 and noticed the huge benefits of yoga as a body-based approach to healing, that became incredibly impactful in their own recovery from addiction. Now Lu helps people in sobriety use yoga and mindfulness to break through the sober plateau.

🔥

As well as teaching yoga, Lu is a Horticulturalist and Garden Designer. They believe that the elements of nature and our environment are intrinsic to embodiment through movement, and experiencing the felt sense to support healing and recovery.

🔥

Lu’s approach is a combination of yoga, mindfulness, breath and somatic practices that fully support healing, resilience and familiarity in the body, ease and regulation in the nervous system, a sense of calm and safety, and feeling connected to one’s own body.

🔥

Lu also has a special interest in working with individuals with nonconforming identities of sex, gender and sexuality.

🔥

I always enjoy chatting to Lu about their perspective on the contemporary yoga scene: the parts of it that are helpful and the parts that can be toxic.
