Lucy is an experienced yoga teacher with a strong Marlow following for her classes and her 'Tea and Yoga' brand.
Lucy’s style of yoga allows the body to strengthen, muscles to be lengthened, fascia and soften connective tissues to be softened, in order to improve strength/flexibility/mobility and to calm the mind. Her unique classes fuse ancient styles of both Vinyasa flow and deep long hold Yin postures, allowing a powerful combination to create a deeper journey throughout the body, taking the physical body to work as hard as it needs to, whilst honouring indulgent deep stretches to help still the mind.
Lucy trained as a Vinyasa Flow Coach with the Yoga Alliance, gaining the recognised Frog Lotus Yoga qualification and has since grown further from later teachings, including 'Yin Yoga Teacher Training' and ‘Yoga for a Healthy Spine'.
Lucy also teaches BarreConcept at YELO - a vibrant cardio fusion of ballet moves, pilates and yoga.

He enjoys sportives and is a regular visitor to the Olympic velodome for training. Proudly a fair weather cyclist, he loves nothing better than smashing out a great Wattbike session in a full studio at YELO.
"The Wattbike is a game-changer. No other indoor training bike even comes close."

Lauren plays for Saracens and England Women’s rugby team. She stars in England’s Six Nations matches and international sevens tournaments.
Lauren loves the Wattbike and makes YELO sessions tough but fun. She draws from her rugby fitness experience and her degree in Sports Science at St Mary’s University.
"It inspires me to see all the riders at YELO and how much they believe in the fantastic results of the Wattbike."
Wattbike sessions are an important feature of the England rugby fitness programme. The accurate power measurement makes it the perfect tool for sprint intervals. Short, fast bursts with recoveries are an extremely efficient way to burn loads of calories and achieve muscle tone.
"My YELO sessions focus on power and speed, but all fitness levels feel welcome and will benefit. Its all about the individual and the effort level that works for you."
When she is not scoring tries and kicking goals on the rugby pitch, Lauren likes climbing and bouldering.
Imogen is a former Team GB rower. She was twice world champion and achieved numerous other accolades and podium finishes in her rowing career.
What was once a medium for cross-training, Imogen is now exploring the various race disciplines of cycling.
“What’s great about the Wattbike sessions at YELO is the combination of pushing yourself individually, alongside the camaraderie and competition of the group."
Imogen coaches all levels at YELO, from rowing specific performance-level sessions to general Wattbike workouts for overall fitness and vitality.
"No matter how fit or unfit, experienced or novice you are, you will get a huge amount out of each class. In just a short session, you get a really effective workout.”
Imogen still enjoys outings on the river. She also now enjoys running and cycling, both indoors and out on the road.
Iona is a professional golfer and former elite hockey player. She trains on the Wattbike as part of her golf strength and conditioning programme. The 'Women's Wattbike' class on Tuesdays at 18.00 is Iona's project to encourage more girls to enjoy the amazing benefits of the Wattbike.
"It's great to have a girls-only class at YELO so we can work together and train smart for our goals."
Whether its that perfect summer body-shape or a cycling or running event you are training for, Iona's sessions fast-track you where you want to go.
"Confidence is so important in sport and fitness. My YELO sessions focus on finding your sweet spot for effort, which makes you comfortable and positive about your improvement."
Iona sees fitness as a holistic identity relating to more than just her specialist sport of golf. Its a lifestyle and an attitude to enjoy cycling and running, and all aspects of weight-training and conditioning. When she is not hitting golf balls she enjoys photography, juggling and borrowing other people's dogs!
We aspire to inspire you.
