Lucie Ormerod_Yoga & Pilates North London


Hello, I'm Lucie! I have over 25 years’ experience in the fields of wellbeing and complementary therapies. I am a member of the Guild of Complementary Practitioners, the Register of Exercise Professionals, and I am registered with Yoga Alliance.


In 1993, I graduated from the London School of Aromatherapy in and qualified in reflexology, massage and shiatsu. I am also an experienced yoga and pilates teacher. I have studied yoga to aid with mobility and physical health issues, which includes yoga for chronic fatigue and ME, as well as accessible chair yoga. 


I have been running my own studio in East Finchley since 2008, where I offer yoga and pilates classes in a bright and airy space, along with my bespoke Holistic Treatments.

I regularly run sold out workshops and yoga and pilates classes along with my wellness day retreats and Saturday Sanctuary.

I am an experienced retreat therapist, having offered massage and facials with Reclaim Yourself Retreats, Union Yoga UK and other international teachers retreats. I also run wellness retreats in collaboration with the Laboratory Spa and Health Club (London N10) as well creating bespoke retreats and travelling with my clients. I have been working on NHS retreats since 2020, specialising in supporting people who are experiencing burn out and trauma.

I have worked at many of the leading London health clubs and clinics, including Holmes Place Health Club Chelsea, and Neal’s Yard Therapy Rooms.

I have worked in local care homes teaching chair yoga  and accessible pilates. I have taught yoga in schools for both students and teachers as well as offered aromathapy at the Marie Curie Hospice in London.

I set up my Urban Calm business as a solo practitioner and since then I have built a network of highly qualified and experienced practitioners, teachers and professional companies and enjoy recommending others to my clients and class attendees.
