When I opened my yoga studio, Lucie was one of the first teachers to join me and I have always been very glad she did! I greatly appreciated her steadiness, reliability and professionalism; and of course the quality of her teaching, which drew dedicated students to her class. You’re getting a gem when you bring Lucie into your orbit.
