About Me

The Journey to Myself


My name is Lucy Lílā Nelson and I want to take a moment to thank each person; teachers, mentors, friends, and partner, for helping me get here today. Thank you for facilitating true change in my life so that I can help others. 


After 28 years of personal exploring, I discovered that living a life full of Joy and Happiness starts with inner peace and freedom. I believe that sometimes to have more is actually to have less. Less stress, less fears, less pain and less blockages.


Today, I am so grateful to say that my personal centeredness is the foundation of my life.


So, how did I get to that place of great Joy? First came pain then came understanding and finally FREEDOM.


I believe we each have what we need to be who we are meant to be and shift into our FULL POTENTIAL. We just need the proper guidance.


If you are ready, I am available to guide you, along with the tools of yoga, stress management, and coaching, to help you redesign your life and THRIVE.


With love and light, 
Lucy Lílā Nelson
