Lucy Panko


Lucy was introduced to yoga in her early teens and what started as a recovery tool for her training as an elite triathlete quickly became so much more: a creative outlet and healing modality. Inspired by yoga’s ability to balance both strength and restoration, she enrolled in Octopus Garden’s Teacher Training and completed over 500 hours of Yoga Education while attending high-school. Shortly thereafter, Lucy began sharing her passion for self-inquiry and intelligent movement—the ability to trust breath and allow one’s body to find its natural alignment.

A life-long student, she is currently studying The Physics of Physiology at UofT. Infusing her classes with equal parts quirky humour and intellectual curiosity, Lucy strives to empower students’ compassion and resilience both on and off the mat.
