Lucy Parker – Senior Yoga Teacher
Having taught for over 12 years Lucy now focuses most of her teaching on Private 1-2-1 sessions. She is the lead teacher and Co-Founder of Flow and, with her husband and osteopath Ben, she teaches anatomy to other yoga and pilates teachers. Lucy weaves her extensive anatomy knowledge into all of her sessions and adds her second passion of meditation into the classes to allow for a coherent mixture of anatomical safety, alignment and precision with mental stilling and calm. Each and every session will be tailored to your exact needs for that day with the aim of allowing you to explore how you feel in all layers of your being from your body to emotions and mind. A perfect way to build confidence and comfort for your daily life on and off the yoga mat.
I recognised the need to do something after experiencing some particularly bad back problems. However after years of being behind a desk and doing very little exercise I realised that classes would not work, I would give up. I needed some individually tailored help.
Lucy was and is an amazing find. She has worked untiringly to understand what I need to help me find a better healthier future. Each session is completely tailored to me and works. I would never have expected to feel so much better, not only physically but also mentally. I give thanks for the day I stepped into the Flow studio. The work with Lucy has led me to believe more in myself and what I can do. She really cares and is completely attuned to my needs. With her help I have gone on to walk the Camino and lead a more satisfying life.
I unreservedly recommend Lucy to anyone. She is so much more than just a superb yoga teacher. She has great experience and professionalism coupled with a rather unique sensitivity. A complete joy!
Lucy Bender – Registered Osteopath
Lucy qualified as an Osteopath in 2013, her first role was in sunny St Lucia where she was part of the clinical team at an award winning Health & Wellness Resort. Here she treated a wide range of patients from different backgrounds from chronic pain to sports injuries. She met practitioners from all over the world who taught her skills she still uses in her practice today. It was here she found her love for yoga and ayurvedic practices which are still very much a driving force of her professional development. After returning home to complete her Yoga teacher training and clinical Pilates certification she worked in both the NHS and Private practice. Lucy bases her treatments not only on the latest research but on evidence-based practice and the principles of osteopathy.
Lucy uses a wide range of manual therapy techniques and rehab protocols to ensure each and every patient has a personalised and complete treatment plan. Lucy will work with you to ensure you fully understand the diagnosis and treatment options. As an Osteopath hands-on treatment is a large part of the treatment but she understands that you can’t out-treat a poor lifestyle therefore will always encourage clients from being “patients” to becoming “active participants”.
If you see Lucy please say Hi 😀 you can find her in our clinic or in the studio teaching Core Flow!

The Rehab Plan
When injuries hang around it can be tricky to get back to health. The fear of pain and can stop us from moving, which can lead to compensatory patterns and further discomfort. So how can we start moving towards a more comfortable, confident and pain free life?
This is where The Rehab Plan steps in, offering you a careful bespoke 8 week programme of osteopathy & exercise.
Working with our osteopaths you will have the Flow treatment room and studio all to yourself. Your rehab plan will span 2 months, meeting an hour per week. Each hour session will be split between Osteopathic hands on treatment & exercise based rehabilitation.
You’ll be supported, encourage and taught movement which you will need to practice at home between sessions. You’ll progress at your own pace over 6 weeks and then the last 2 weeks will ease you into a group class setting so that you can build your confidence and begin to feel what works for you independent of your therapist.
The rehab plan will provide you with your own personal toolbox of tips, skills & home exercises to keep you pain free and moving confidently for the long term.
Our 8 programme is £500 in total. All sessions are lead by osteopath and yoga teacher Lucy Bender.

When I first started 1-2-1 yoga sessions with Lucy (as an absolute beginner) my sole aim was to regain physical fitness after major surgery. Lucy’s reassuringly gentle, yet targeted, teaching has certainly contributed greatly to my physical recovery. From the very beginning Flow felt a warm and safe environment to start challenging myself again. However, as time’s gone on my yoga practice has morphed into something so much more – a true mind, body and spirit experience. Lucy has such a wonderful way of weaving all three elements together. Each new session always seems fresh and interesting, often linking into a particular theme and piece of poetry and yet when I work through it again on my own at home I can clearly see how it’s also deepening and building on what we’ve covered previously. Thanks to Lucy yoga is now a very important and permanent part of my life and I’m excited to see where the journey takes me next.
