with Fi Lundie
It’s the same when building a yoga practice, your Foundations have to be strong. No matter how long you have been practicing there is always something new to learn and by stripping everything down to the foundations and rebuilding is a wonderful way to take a fresh look at something you already know and sometimes remember something we have forgotten. This foundations class does just that. If you come with an open mind you will always leave with more knowledge than when you arrived.
People who attend this class are an eclectic bunch as we have beginners and experienced practitioners alike. Whether you are just starting out on your yoga journey and have only attended a handful of beginners classes or have been practicing for years Fi is wonderful at explaining the technicalities of poses that aren’t always covered in the faster paced vinyasa classes.
Fi is also a chartered Physiotherapist who works for the GB downhill mountain bike squad so you are in extremely capable hands because as you can imagine she’s used to dealing with injuries. She makes teaches in a way that makes this class accessible for anyone to join this class.
This class is also suitable for students who are returning to their yoga practice after a break and want to re-build confidence.
Foundations Yoga is the perfect class for all levels from beginner up. It is for anyone wanting to build their experience in the foundations of yoga asana practice.
It aims to increase your confidence in correct positioning and the specific use of props to help align you more effectively in each posture.
It will help you progress safely into more advanced levels of asana practice, vinyasa flow sequences & develop a stronger home practice.
I thought I knew my body and how well, or not, but Fi was able to convey in simple terms how to achieve what I thought would be impossible for me.
We have studio mats for you to use, however we advise you to eventually buy your own mat. We sell a small select range of yoga mats that we recommend/use ourselves. Cheap yoga mats are ok to start with but you will feel the difference in a high quality yoga mat as it will make your practice far more enjoyable. Cheap thin mats don’t offer the support and comfort that a higher quality mat provides.
Wear comfortable clothing with layers that are easily removed or added to allow for changes in body temperature during class. Be ready to practice in bare feet. This is the traditional (and safest) way to practice. One thing that we would recommend is to wear a top that you can keep on until you warm up and that you can put on at the end of a class, especially for Shavasana (relaxation).

Fi is a tremendous trio of Yoga Teacher, Chartered Physiotherapist and Specialist Soft Tissue Therapist.
She first started practising as a student of yoga 20 years ago in Australia while travelling.
in 1993, Fi qualified from Bath School of Physiotherapy and after gaining post-graduate experience, spent 12 years living and working in New Zealand. Fi received her training in Soft Tissue, Massage and Sports Therapy in Christchurch in 2006. During her time in NZ she badly injured her back and pretty much had to learn to walk again.
On returning to the UK in 2015, she worked as a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and Sports Massage Therapist and a friend advised her to ‘check out Lime House Yoga’. Three years later Fi managed to make it to studio, knocked on the door, was greeted by Jock and felt like she was meeting an old friend. She practiced as student with Jock for a year, before completing her 300hr Yoga Teacher Training here at Lime House in 2019. Her knowledge of anatomy and physiology now plays a strong part in her yoga teachings.
Fi says, ‘I’ve come a long way in a few years under the guidance of amazing teachers and the nurturing environment which is LHY. My favourite practice is morphing and evolving – my basis/foundation in Iyengar is invaluable for rehab and physio. Starting Ashtanga with Jock built up my strength, so while Iyengar makes you stable, controlled, and aligned, the combination of both gives the best of all worlds.
Yoga is infinite. Physio is the centre of my wheel and now yoga surrounds it, keeping everything oiled, keeping it turning.’
Find Fi at Lime House on Tuesdays for Beginner’s Yoga 6:15-7:30pm and Wednesdays for Foundations Yoga 9:30-11am.
