Lynn Murphy

Yoga
Lynn’s relationship with yoga began over 35 years ago. From the start, it became and remains one of the key threads that runs through her life, a wonderful tool to navigate the many transitions women go through, including motherhood and menopause.

After the birth of her two children, Lynn’s yoga training began when she trained with Janet Balaskas (1995-97) as an Active Birth Yoga Teacher for the pre and postnatal period. Lynn also trained in developmental baby massage with Peter Walker, whom she worked alongside for a number of years. She went on to become the co-director and a senior teacher at the Active Birth Centre in north London, running classes and trainings for the pre and postnatal period and general yoga for over 20 years now. Lynn was responsible for developing the therapy clinic at the ABC where she met Sebastien; she is now happy to also be working alongside Sebastien and colleagues at Rosebery Practice to support clients in a truly holistic and rounded way.

“I believe my approach to yoga is wonderfully complementary to Osteopathy. I discovered osteopathy for myself 20 years ago and continue to use it alongside yoga to support my own ongoing journey.”

Lynn’s approach to yoga is Scaravelli-inspired; this approach focuses on the deep intelligence of the body that is within us all, and a realisation that less (effort) brings more (ease). With attentive guidance and a curious and playful approach, you can find movement that resonates from your very core allowing you to undo years of held patterns. An individual and tailored approach to yoga helps many discover a new relationship to their physical body, to feel more 'in touch' with themselves.

Training: Alongside teaching, Lynn also trains others and has developed the Baby & Me Nurture trainings for practitioners, which focuses on the ‘fourth trimester’. Drawn from her extensive experience and knowledge from over two decades of working with new mums and babies, its aim is to help fill a gap in our society’s support of new families. It includes massage for babies and bodywork for new mothers that is appropriate for these early months, as well as developing the practitioner’s role.
