Lucy Karnani

After practicing yoga for many years Lucy trained as a Yoga Teacher at the Kripalu Center in Massachusetts, USA and has continued her yoga teaching and yoga therapy studies in Australia and the USA since 2011. She has studied with Michael de Manincor; Vidya Carolyn Dell’uomo and Devarshi Steven Hartman; Ganesh, Indira and A.G. Mohan; Amy Weintraub, Leslie Kaminoff and Richard Miller; as well as with Heather Plett, developing her expertise in ‘holding space’. She feels very grateful to be able to share the wisdom and experience that she has received from these many gifted teachers, as well as from her students and clients with whom she has worked over the last eight years in both Australia and the USA.

However, Lucy had been teaching for many years before starting her yoga teaching journey. Starting from the beginning, she taught SCUBA diving, managed sales teams in radio stations throughout Australia and then managed a Health Retreat in Queensland. In the early 1990’s she joined Rogen International in Sydney, which was a global training and consulting firm specialising in face-to-face communication. Lucy went on to become a Global Partner and the CEO of Rogen, North America, having moved to the USA in 1995. The Yoga Institute is where Lucy has found her sangha (yoga community) in Australia; she brings her extensive knowledge and experience of communication skills to the training, coaching and mentoring of yoga teachers and therapists in programs offered by The Yoga Institute.

The services Lucy offers the yoga community are guided by a personal experience of the healing power of self-compassion and include: teaching classes, teaching privately, leading prana facilitation, mentoring and training communication skills for yoga teachers and yoga therapists, creating and facilitating transformational programs and coaching experienced teachers to refine their workshops and presentations. Lucy passionately believes in yoga as a system for healing and transformation of the body, mind and spirit.

She has also co-written the book “CONNECTING – Conscious Communication for Yoga Teachers and Therapists”. Lucy, her husband Ramesh, three children and two dogs live in both Australia and the USA.
