about lucy

Lucy London Gemmell was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa.

She has recently stumbled upon what it means to be a conscious human being.
In 2015, Lucy packed her bags and said goodbye to her life in Johannesburg and boarded a plane to Nicaragua.

Lucy will always remember her months in Nicaragua as the ‘place that stole my soul with the rich culture and untouched lands) and also a place where she received her first yoga certification (Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow 200h YTT).

Upon arriving back in South Africa, Lucy did her second certification at Tegan B Yoga in 2017 in Vinyasa 200h YTT). After the certification, Lucy decided to partake in Budokon Yoga. In 2019, she completed her Yin YTT along with a diploma in Thai Yoga Massage.

She is known for: Laughing obnoxiously loudly and being upside down.

Personal motto: Keep showing up, even on the hard days – especially on the hard days.

If Lucy is not in a yoga studio, you’ll find her: On the sofa with a good book or frolicking in the park trying to get as much dog love as possible.
