Lucy Hamel


Lucy Hamel, originally from Boston, Massachusetts has been immersed in her love of body work for more than thirty years. Diagnosed as a child with a leg discrepancy she was given the option of surgery or a future back brace. Instead she found healing through love of movement and self belief. Naturally, as an adult, Lucy became a personal trainer focusing on alignment. At 24 years old Lucy moved to Greece and continued personal training numerous clients of all ages. Following her study of clients she fully sensed how energy could flow or be stuck in a person. Her belief in energy led her to become a reiki practitioner in her thirties. Not long after that, Lucy became a rebirth breath work practitioner for which she is now well known, and leads retreats and workshops internationally. All of this curiosity and passion for continued growth and joy led Lucy to explore the study of yoga more deeply. She completed her teacher training in Athens Greece seven years ago . In yoga, Lucy embraced even more profoundly the belief in union. Union not only exists with all life forms, it exists between your thoughts, feelings and body.

Through time Lucy has developed a style of Yoga flow that adds in elements of play (which she considers vital for all of us) that guide you into a deeper union awareness. Lucy narrates her classes in a way that makes you embrace your connection to your self. Simply opening a hand differently in an asana can move feelings though the heart or shift a thought. Her classes bring challenges that will make you shake and smile , as well as focus greatly on the core. Music and mood will vary as much as life. Her ability to see each student as a unique individual adds greatly to the growth you will find during your retreat.

“In respect to the yoga, I effortlessly accomplished asanas I had never been able to master even in my youth. My posture, flexibility, physical strength and endurance mirrored all my internal positive changes Lucy had magically weaved in throughout the week. As I left for home, I had fallen hopelessly in love… with my ever-growing self!”

***Our yoga classes are for all skill levels, from beginners to experienced yogis.


The Magic In The Air Workshop

Magic. Can you feel it everywhere? Inhale the mist of life and welcome the mystery.

How does what you think is true, become a reality inside or outside of you?

How can you create good?

Is your life alchemy in action?

What do you want to keep and what is it time to change?

In caring for your energy, let’s help you to feel it.

This is a workshop to sense what is real beyond the five senses, yet palpable in the sixth. We will practice conscious connected breathing ( remember, there is magic in the air ), third eye practices, chakras, crystal sensitivity and energy games. As each group is unique, we will find out the truer truths to be seen when we all meet. Not knowing becomes part of the seeing.

Look to the sky without attempting to find the logic of each thing. You will be entertained and taught invaluable lessons by the universe.

Breathe. Inhale everything and then let it go. It will return with the grace of a spin.

And love? Well love holds a belonging to this magic. It thrives in everything that blooms and fades. An infinite, powerful yet tender fuel that whispers in each breath and touch. Just like magic, it is undefinable in words. When you love, you just know it.

When you experience love and magic, you feel it in your soul.

There is an ancient familiarity to it, like coming home to something you always knew to be true.
