Lotty's Story - In her own words

“Change is as much about letting go of the old as it is embracing the new. You have to let go to move forward.”

Lotty’s fun facts:

I am…

  • A proud New Zealand citizen since 2018. Originally from the UK, I’ve lived in this beautiful country since 2005.
  • Bionic and had to learn to walk again after a double hip replacement in 2016. My recovery was a humbling and empowering journey that taught me the power of stillness and wisdom that arises from slowing down.
  • A qualified yoga teacher, completing my 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2017. Since then I’ve continued to teach and upskill as a yoga teacher, discovering many of those yoga teachings are beneficial way beyond the boundaries of the yoga mat.
  • A breathwork instructor. The breath has deep physical and mental health benefits to relieve the ailments caused by the modern world, of which there are many.

I’m happiest when I’m…

  • With my husband and three sons, who bring me endless joy.
  • In the kitchen experimenting or preparing nourishing food for family and friends
  • In nature – lying in a field, hiking in the hills, swimming in the ocean or hugging a tree. (Yes, I do really hug trees. Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it!).

I always make time for…

  • A good belly laugh, the type that makes your abs hurt more than crunches the next day.
  • Daily meditation. Life may be busy, but I know that everything feels way easier, clearer and less crazy when I make the time to be in stillness with my body, breath and mind.
  • Singing and dancing like no one’s watching. What I lack in talent I make up for in enthusiasm.
  • Reading good books and listening to podcasts. I drink up books and podcasts like good coffee. Hit me up for my fave recommendations.

I believe in…

  • The power of walking to solve problems and create lightbulb moments. I traded running for walking, which I find an amazing way to think and cultivate ideas.
  • Boundaries. I talk about this a lot in my work and work hard to practise it in my daily life. This means saying no sometimes, knowing my limits, not giving myself a hard time and reminding myself I can’t drink from an empty cup.
  • The human heart. It sounds obvious but I think we can lose faith easily in the essential goodness of human nature. Most people want to do the right thing, but can get distracted or lose their way and may simply need a bit of help and support to come back to what’s truly important in their heart.
