About Me

~ Lucy St John ~

Why do I practice Yoga?

After spending 7 months in India, learning from different yogic traditions, masters, and peers, I came back to Canada with a state of consciousness that the yogi’s call Unity Consciousness. It was the first concrete experience of Ascendance I had and, it lasted… a few months.

I felt peace and vitality all the time and I felt humbled by the intelligence of Nature.

Experientially, when I looked into the eyes of another person, I “knew,” not intellectually but actually “knew“, that they were me just looking back at myself in a different form. Explaining a sustained experience of wholeness, of another experiential perspective loses some of its efficacy but here goes:

I was completely vulnerable to what the moment presented, I was constantly learning, forgiving and changing. I didn’t know how I came to live in this very normal state of consciousness. It wasn’t from the ashrams I visited, it was the right time and the entire experience of traveling in India that required a foundation of trust in my instincts, intuition, heart, and mind all working in harmony. I was rooted and seeing the world from the Transcendent state rather than from my small self. The awe and the beauty of Life is something I can never forget.

Coming home to Canada became a much bigger challenge because I began to lose my heightened state of consciousness and fear and doubt began re-appear in my life. I had to integrate what I learned and who I had become.

Luckily for me, a Vedic student & teacher arrived in my life to help me articulate, maintain and continue to build a more meaningful personal relationship with myself whilst living and facing the distractions of the West.

I've been blessed by many teachers. The greatest impact has been the teachings of Guru Dev and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

So how is this relevant for you?

The practices of Yoga & Meditation have helped me to experience this state of Transcendence, in which you fully come to know your purpose.

I believe that life is your Ashram.

You gotta bring your best and get into the game of life before it’s over.

The courses I offer are a road map to your authentic self and provide common-sense frameworks for understanding your life.
