Join me for a very special Yoga in Bingley. Meeting just before 10am outside Amazon Natural Fitness we will head out on a walk into the woods... Spending time quietly with nature, particularly trees, is incredibly healing. It can help us to bring things into perspective, to feel connected to a bigger picture and to take some much needed time away from electronic devices, cars and general life stress. The Japanese recognised spending time in forests actually increases life expectancy due to its stress lowering properties and have created a culture of doing this, calling it a 'Forest Bath' (no water involved!). In Yorkshire we would probably call it a meander in t'woods, but either way, it's great!

We will take a nice walk to a special wooded glade I know, where we will do some gentle outdoor yoga. You won't need a mat and you can choose if you take your shoes off or not! Practicing yoga outside is incredibly special – it helps to make you feel more grounded, more at ease and dissipates anxiety beautifully.

After our yoga session (probably 20 – 30 minutes long) we'll then walk back through the woods in silent meditation.

The session will probably take around 2 hours. If you'd like to bring a small picnic to have in Myrtle Park after the walk, please do!

Lucy’s yoga sessions will help you to create a healthy and supple body and mind. This easy-to-practice yoga uses slow and flowing movements to improve core stability, flexibility and help release tension and stress.

Everyone is welcome; Lucy teaches a fully instructed class that doesn’t require any prior knowledge of yoga or flexibility (so great for beginners). And the classes will evolve in response to those that come along, so take part and experience a new way to stretch and relax.


Dru Yoga is a style of Hatha Yoga, which is influenced by Tai Chi and Qi Gong, Pilates, Isolated Active Stretching and other techniques to keep the body and mind healthy and strong, to build resilience inside and out.



Classes are open to the general public and members of Amazon Natural Fitness and will be inclusive for all body types and levels of fitness.

A limited number of yoga mats will be provided, but you are encouraged to bring your own as this is more hygienic. Contact Lucy on lucy@lucyoga.co.uk if you wish to buy a yoga mat.
