Lumaia is a yoga and well-being business, based in the South of France.
We host group hot yoga (Forrest Yoga) classes, private yoga classes, prenatal and postnatal yoga and yoga for pelvic floor health, as well as a variety of healing modalities, including bodywork, holistic treatments, essential oils and reiki/ energetic healing.
At Lumaia, we care about the the humans and animals that inhabit our Beautiful planet. Our mission is to help you become the best version of yourself — what that looks like, is up to you! We'll supply the tools and the support. If you're in pain, suffering, stress, sadness, we'll help you to move it out of your body.
If you want to lose weight or want that 'yoga butt', we'll help you get there too — we think you'll get so much more!

I'm a Level 3 Certified Forrest Yoga Teacher, Forrest Yoga Guardian, Poppy Perinatal Yoga Teacher Trainer, Bodyworker, Reiki Practitioner, Shaman.
My yoga classes and workshops are created to be healing and exciting to whoever shows up. I'm adept at giving pose modifications for injuries, conditions and pregnancy — in fact, problem solving with my students gives me a real buzz. I teach in French and English, sometimes both in the same class.
As a Medicine Person, I have had the honour of studying with and learning from an eclectic mix of Medicine People, including Brooke Medicine Eagle, Patricia White Buffalo and Esther Lim, with whom I worked as an assistant, and of course, Ana Forrest.
I have a personal mission (or dharma, for the yogis out there) — to help people to get out of pain, to realise their potential, and their brilliance!
My passion and commitment to teaching prenatal, postnatal yoga and yoga for pelvic floor health stems from my own experience of pregnancy loss, full-term pregnancy, giving birth and postpartum recovery. I worked with pelvic floor re-education specialists as part of my personal re-habilitation and have since completed further studies with anatomy wizards Ellen Heed, Dr Kathy Dooley and Christine Kent of Whole Woman Inc.
I regularly work with clients with organ prolapse, stress incontinence, post-birth scarring and other pelvic floor complications. Our work together empowers them to heal their physical and emotional bodies naturally.
I'm an experienced teaching coach and I bring my compassion, empathy and truth to everything I do.
When I'm not working, I love to dance, and adventure with my family into the rivers, lakes, mountains and oceans...
