Lucy is now a Co-Owner of The Pineapple House, where she and Rachel share what they love; surfing, yoga, taking time to connect with like minded people, spending time in nature, and seeing their favourite healers and practitioners in the area.
“We have found that those who are drawn to our retreats have come for a reason and it blows us away every time to watch our guests journey while they’re with us. The main thing that we want to share with our guests is to truly know what self care is, and that they can be free to follow what their heart wants, not what society wants of them.”
”Self-care is not what you do on the outside, it’s how you look after yourself from the inside - emotionally, energetically and hormonally. Self care is not a surface one-stop-event, it takes constant work and constant reminders to have compassion and love for yourself, but the rewards are life changing! When you look after yourself on these subtle levels, then your direction in life shift in exciting and soul-nourishing ways.”
Yoga has taught Lucy how to slow down, and especially her love for Yin Yoga has been important on her journey. Lucy will be present at Slow Food & Yoga Festival in October 2019, where we will teach classes of Yin Yoga.
“I had a tendency to go a million miles an hour and pack as much into my life as possible. This came to an abrupt stop, when I got adrenal fatigue in 2014. Yin Yoga and meditation helped me to see what I was doing with my overall health by constantly being on the go. I’m much better at self monitoring and caring for myself now, and I often remind myself that I am enough, exactly the way I am. I don’t need to “Do More” in order the “Be More.”
