Keri Lincoln is a Primal Yoga® Flow and Solomon Yogalates™ teacher in Lancashire, UK. Keri is passionate about spreading the grace and power of Primal Yoga® Flow - a seamless blend of Yoga and Martial Arts that was designed by Liz Arch to explore the body’s full range of motion through flowing transitions and thoughtfully arranged sequences.
Keri has always been inspired by movement - ever since she was three and was stamping around in her first pair of tap shoes. Dance stayed in the forefront and she completed a BA (Hons) degree in June 2011 in Dance, Performance and Teaching; with a strong focus on Contemporary Dance, Somatic Movement and Inclusive Practice. After her dance suffered due to a lower back injury she started practicing Yoga and Pilates; qualifying with the Solomon Yogalates Method in 2012. She regularly teaches classes and privates in this style.
With Yogalates™ taking off quickly it was a challenge to make it to the dance classes as evenings were taken up with her own classes.
Keri has always found Martial Arts aesthetically pleasing - Karate Kid, Bruce Lee, Kung Fu films were always the choice but she had never actually tried Martial Arts. That was until she stumbled upon a video of Liz Arch practicing Primal Yoga®. There was an instant attraction; to the movement, the grace, the transitions, the strength and power. It was mesmerising.
From that moment Keri started her Martial Arts Path; she started attending classes at Southport Karate School where she started her training in the inspiring, hard-soft style, Goju-Ryu with Sensei Guy Keen. As Keri’s passion grew for the Martial Arts so did the need to book a flight to LA and train in Primal Yoga® Flow - she qualified in March 2015. Keri’s practice now consists of Primal Yoga® Flow everyday and she enjoys sharing this beautiful and strong style with everyone in her workshops. Her teaching style represents her love for movement and passion for the Martial Arts with creative and fluid sequences. Her workshops and classes offer something for everybody and are suitable for all levels.
Keri also uses Yoga to give back and organises the ‘Yogathon 4 Alzheimer’s’ in Liverpool - where all money goes to Alzheimer’s Research UK. A charity that is very close to Keri’s heart.
Keri is grateful for all the teachers that have guided her and helped her dreams become reality. Although she loves teaching - she will always be a student and enjoys deepening her learning and understanding at Martial Arts Seminars, Yoga Workshops and Trainings. She teaches classes, corporate sessions, privates, workshops and retreats.
Created by Liz Arch, Primal Yoga® is a dynamic and martial arts fusion style that merges Vinyasa yoga with the artistry of Kung Fu and the grace of Tai Chi into an athletic, heat-building flow, while focusing on alignment, balance, strength, power and flexibility.
Primal Yoga® Flow is a fluid and thoughtfully sequenced class that combines movement and breath to cultivate the flow of Qi, or vital life force energy throughout the body. We seamlessly blend yoga with slow flowing movements inspired by Tai Chi, Qigong and Kung Fu into a harmonious dance to create balance, strength and synergy in our physical and emotional bodies. With an emphasis on breath, fluidity and intelligent alignment-based sequencing, Primal Yoga® Flow harmonises yin and yang energy and taps into our body's own innate wisdom to unlock the healing potential within.

"Keri teaches with poise, passion, precision and personality and I'm proud to have her as the first teacher representing Primal Yoga® Flow in the UK."
"Keri's Primal Yoga classes are challenging, kickass and fun! The flow sequences are so organic that you don't realise how far you're going until you're upside-down in a position you never would have thought you could do. I don't mean to suggest it's hard, though. As with all yoga, you have choices and levels throughout, and go to exactly where you are comfortable. I don't think I'll ever look back, though. This is the best yoga I've done so far."

"Just done an amazing Primal Yoga workshop with Keri Lincoln , really recommend giving this ago. Lovely fascial moves and using the primal movement patterns in with traditional Yoga asana,Martial arts and Qi Gong. At the end we did some amazing inversions taught totally differently from the norm, looking forward to the next workshop and thank you for a lovely day."
"Keri teaches with such enthusiasm and passion which is projected out to all of us at her classes. She really puts the emphasis on expression and makes you feel comfortable and welcome. After attending a recent workshop, I have found my motivation and passion to pursue yoga daily. Thank you Keri!"
"Having practiced yogalates for a few years with Keri and more recently pregnancy yoga I was really interested in her new Primal Yoga with its elements of martial arts (mainly in the hope it would help me find calm and strength during those tiring night feeds). I actually found it to be more than that and really enjoyed pushing and challenging myself and my body post baby. The floor work was by far my favourite and felt proud to have braved a handstand without the wall. Cant wait to take part in another workshop,it cant come soon enough"
“Since starting under Keri in September 2014, not only have I thoroughly enjoyed every session but both my flexibility and core strength have improved significantly. Given that I have been consistently training in karate for 34 years and obtained a high level, this rate of improvement has been a most welcome and pleasant surprise, my only regret is not starting years ago! I would have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending Keri, she is a gifted, knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructor who has proved to be highly effective in enhancing my sporting performance.”
