We sat down with Lucy and Hayley, founder of A Live Yogi to ask them about their journey, what inspired them to start A Live Yogi and we delve deep into the benefits of having an online yoga practice.
Tell us the story which started this all – what inspired you to start A Live Yogi? Do you recall if there was a spark of inspiration which started it all? If so, we would love for you to share it with us.
We started A Live Yogi as we wanted to share this life-changing practice with as main people as possible. To break beyond the bounds of the physical world and reach members all across the world with our classes and share the passion of our incredible teachers. To create an online space that would allow people to continue their practice at any time during the day and wherever they go.
How does A Live Yogi work and what can our community expect when they join? Tell us a bit about your incredible team!
We have online yoga & meditation classes for all levels – shorter and more gentle classes for beginners, and longer and heat-building classes for those looking for a more challenging practice. We also know that sometimes it’s hard to find motivation to get moving, so many of our members complete a program to kickstart their home practice and to keep themselves accountable. Our teachers are accessible to our members – we take class requests, feedback and questions – we’re there to support our members as they begin or continue on their yoga journey.
What inspired you both to teach yoga? How has it impacted your life?
We actually met at a local yoga studio; Lucy was teaching and I was just starting on my yoga journey.
Like many yogis, we first found yoga during stressful period in our lives, soon realizing that it truly was something special. The joy, acceptance and contentment that yoga has provided to us is too good not to share – think of it as an opportunity to spend some quality time with yourself.
What are the benefits of an online practice?
You choose – style, length of class, teacher; whatever your mind and body feel like right at that moment. You do not need to travel to a studio, wear fancy active wear (PJs are totally fine) or be distracted by others. To hold space for yourself on a regular basis really is such a gift.
What is your daily non-negotiable for your health and wellbeing?
We make sure we find 10 minutes of mindful breathing every single day. Just 10 minutes – everyone can find 10 minutes in their day. It’s so important to just stop, breathe, reflect and relax.
Are there any exciting things in store for the brand in the near future?
Absolutely! We are so excited about some incredible new teachers joining our team – ready to share their passion and teachings with the world! We have more Series; Programs and also some online Workshops on the way – 2020 is going to be a big year for us.
