Louisa studied Italian and Philosophy at the University of Leeds, before training as a spa therapist. Graduating at the top of her class, she started working in top London spas before developing her own business with a VIP client base. A long time practitioner of yoga, Louisa realised that helping her clients often involved mindfulness work, so yoga teacher training naturally followed. To extend her skills, she qualified as a personal trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Louisa works holistically with a variety of expertise, helping clients to feel their best, both physically and emotionally. Louisa is based in the south of France with her husband and three sons.
Louisa first experienced yoga as a child, accompanying her mother to classes. A keen traveller, she continued to practice a variety of styles depending on what classes were available wherever she was in the world. A big fan of Bikram, and then Ashtanga yoga in London, Louisa trained with Global Yoga Shala in the Sacred Valley in Peru to gain her yoga teaching qualification. Whilst in Peru, she took the opportunity to study and learn from local ancient shamanic practices. Since then, her personal practice has had to adapt to fit around the birth of two children family life. Her yoga practice remains a very necessary daily tool to maintain her physical and mental health, a tool she passes on to her students through her personal teaching style. Louisa’s classes start with techniques to calm and focus the mind, followed by dynamic, creative flow, closely focusing on the anatomy and needs of the individual student. Her classes are designed to make the practice suit the individual’s body and needs. The yoga session always ends with time for contemplation and a full relaxation at the end.
