Lucie started as a ceramic artist. She studied at Edinburgh College of Art and later in Kyoto, Japan where she also discovered Zen meditation.
The academic part of her training in Hindi and Indian philosophy was at SOAS, London. Her practical training in applied philosophy was with her spiritual teacher Professor O.Sharma in Jaipur, India where she lived for several years.
Her other big influence was the late Swami Indar Nath who taught her the yogic discipline and more recently her Pranayama Master Dr ShriKrishna whose system of meditative pranayama she has fully integrated into her personal practice and teaching.
