About me

In essence

Lucile, similar to Lucia, comes from the Latin word lux, meaning “light”. As a carrier of that name, my Dharma (purpose, duty, innate quality) is to share my light with others and encourage them to find their own.

I am a yoga teacher, Bhakti yogi, acupuncturist, and aspiring regenerative farmer. I have always turned to movement as a way to channel my inner world and alchemize it, formerly being a competing athlete and horse rider.

Similarly, I have found my voice to not only be a great tool to complete my mission, but also a true gift. As I have practiced singing my whole life, the devotional path of Bhakti Yoga became evident.


The journey


I have been on a journey to find truth and freedom since my late teenage years. As a result, teaching has naturally become a part of that process.

Freshly out of school, I intuitively embarked on a spiritual quest and first stepped foot in India in 2017. There, my senses were heightened and I was receptive to radically new experiences and paradigms. Thanks to my incredible encounters and my immersion in the Indian culture, I dove deep into the sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda, eastern philosophies and the richness of the spiritual realm.

I quickly became receptive to ancient knowledge traditions. In 2018, in between trips to India, I made my way to Shanghai, China to learn acupuncture and the founding principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Not only did this experience give me practical tools to live a balanced life, but it also reconciled me with the medical system, as it uses a holistic, individual-based approach. In 2020, I initiated my study of classical Vedic chanting of the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali with Julia Shemesh and reaping the benefits of a daily practice ever since.


With that knowledge acquired, I have continuously integrated the concept of subtle energetic currents in the body by practicing observation. To me, the practice is just that: one of taking the seat of the observer until all that which we are not fades and only Truth remains.

The practice

My commitment to the practice of Yoga was formalized in India. I surrendered to it as I was trying to make sense of an identity loss after a deeply uprooting event. The practice came as a blessing in disguise and it turned out to be my greatest gift.

I have studied under the guidance of several teachers and did my 200h Yoga Alliance certified teacher training with Talia Sutra and Tony Lupinacci. As a result, my teaching consists of a blend of Hatha and Vinyasa, where the 26 + 2 sequence serves as a strong foundation. The emphasis is on providing precise technique to empower students to safely explore their own ranges in body and mind. I also incorporate energetic exploration through the TCM system of meridians for further introspection. I have studied Meridian Yoga Therapy (MYT) with Rose Erin Vaughan and I am a certified MYT Level 1 practitioner. Besides teaching asana through that framework, I use acupressure, moxibustion, cupping and scraping as complementary healing practices with individual patients, yogis or not.

On a philosophical level, my focus lies on using my knowledge of ancient teachings and practices to reframe them as digestible tools easily applicable by the modern yogi.
