When starting out, Louisa taught two Kids’ Yoga Classes per week, but the high demand led to her teaching in schools and nurseries throughout Grampian, eventually expanding to special needs schools and Health Clubs.
Working with Active Schools in Aberdeen City and Shire for over 10 years, she was at one stage, teaching 50 classes a week in various schools and Health Clubs across Aberdeenshire.
In 2006, Louisa then qualified as an RYT200 Adult’s Yoga teacher in the jungles of Costa Rica with the aim of further sharing her passion with people from all walks of life mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
She then went to train as an Advanced Yoga Teacher Trainer for a month in Mexico before her 500 hours as a Senior Yoga Teacher were completed in Southern India.
Always the student, Louisa continues her lifelong dedication to Yoga by continuing to train with leading Yoga Teachers worldwide. She has also trained as an Advanced Reiki Healing practitioner, which she incorporates into her one-to-one yoga classes and has also completed diplomas in Tantra and Feng Shui.
Teaching yoga in nurseries, schools, Health Clubs and from her home, Louisa also provides one-to-one yoga classes and Reiki healing sessions.
In my practice, the aim of Asana is more than improved health, flexibility and strength; it is used as a technique to balance the main forces that sustain mind and the body. Asanas are used to transform the physical body, as well as, to unblock or remove the obstructions to healthy or balanced energy flow. This Tantric approach to Asana, is drawn from the ancient Yogic wisdom that suggests the quality of your energy determines your experience of life. Their explorations and experiences revealed that there were no energies or forces in the world that were not in the body, and none in the body that aren’t in the world. Thus, the central teaching on the Tradition is: if you master the life forces in your body, then you can master the forces in the world and, as a result, master your experience of and circumstances in the world.
