About your host: Lucy Gemell

Born and raised in Johannesburg South Africa,Lucy is a 27 years old and is only just stumbling upon what it means to be a conscious human being.

She completed her first yoga certification (Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow 200h YTT) in 2015 in Nicaragua, a place that stole her soul with their rich culture and untouched lands. From there she finished her second certification (Vinyasa 200h YTT) in Johannesburg in 2017 along with a third certification (50h YTT) in her new found passion, Budokon Yoga.  

“I teach yoga to share something that so profoundly has changed my life in hope to help change someones too. I practice yoga to get to know myself, to learn to love myself and to accept the things I cannot change and find courage to change the things I can.”

Come explore 3 of my favourite things; Yoga, Food and Travel.

Vamos Verde is a space to gain knowledge on the intricacies of being a conscious human being through blog posts, videos, recipes, and pictures. It is a space to share what I have learnt and continue to learn from my journey on this earth. Come join me as we get to know ourselves.
