09 Apr Focusing on women’s well-being in yoga with RFY teacher Lucie Norris
on the blog
Lucie Norris is a Real Flow Yoga (RFY) Women’s Wellness Yoga Teacher. His love of water has led him to teach SUP (Stand Up Paddle) yoga. However, this love of water has also inadvertently guided her in her exploration of the divine feminine and her focus on the well-being of women in the practice of yoga. The divine feminine is associated with the water element which is expressed as qualities such as flow, fluidity, adaptability, intuition, flexibility, power through surrender and creativity.
Lucie first discovered this approach by attending to her own teacher Bess Shipside classes. Bess Shipside, Lucie’s teacher is a professor of the Real Flow Faculty Yoga that really embodies ethos. She is authentic, adaptive and heart-centered in her teaching and Lucie finds her truly inspiring.
“Something about the way Bess taught was so amazing … her whole environment … I would leave her classes with an amazing feeling … I wanted to bring the same elements to my own teaching,” says Lucie.
After experiencing Bess’s classes, Lucie knew where to start her journey and immediately signed up at 3 p.m. Real Flow Yoga Women’s Wellness Professional Courses. He participated for the first time in the Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training (YTT)followed by the YTT postnatal yoga and wellness and completed with the Well YTT Belly Woman.
“I learned a lot in the 3 courses, they complemented each other enormously … and they changed my life”
In this discussion about zoom I ask Lucie more HOW Deepening in yoga the well-being of women has affected their lives, their yoga practice and their teaching and career.
In terms of it teaching and the professional trajectory, having this specialty in the well-being of the woman allowed him to take advantage of its authentic voice, elevated its offerings, enriched its classes and attracted its tribe. She has experienced first-hand how the focus of women’s well-being on yoga is ultimately adaptive, which Lucie says makes yoga accessible to all bodies, makes it inclusive (e.g. , for menstruating, postnatal, menopausal, pregnant and postnatal women and even for men!) and has also found that this approach is REALLY effective in meeting the needs of their students.
For example, she is using the tools and practices learned in pregnancy yoga in a variety of teaching contexts.
“Pregnancy transitions are really great for going up and down in a stream on a paddle board.” the pregnancy sequences are really effective ”.
In her personal yoga practice and life, what she learned from these RFY Teacher Trainings has facilitated her on her own healing journey and has also been instrumental in initiating her in her own wisdom of the uterus and delve deeper into his personal yoga practice. This approach to yoga continues to maintain her well-being during her own current pregnancy and also through the new community of women she has known since then teaching yoga in this way.
