Louise is based in Stockport in the south of Manchester and is passionate about yoga, nutrition, clean beauty products and overall health in general. She has over ten years’ experience working in marketing and communications and has frequently turned to yoga and nutrition in order to manage her stress levels and generally get a better clarity of mind.
She has completed two 200 hour yoga teacher training courses, the most recent being with Ana Forrest of Forrest Yoga in 2016. Forrest Yoga provided a huge breakthrough for Louise as it has helped her to manage her own depression and anxiety.
Louise is hugely passionate about a regular yoga practise. She loves teaching and passing her knowledge and experience onto other people. Louise believes anyone can do yoga (even the ones who can’t touch their toes!). Her classes are tailored for all ages and abilities and as well as working to strengthen both body and mind, Louise's classes are fun and there is a real sense of community. Louise uses her passion for yoga and wellbeing to empower her clients. She has a caring attitude and helps clients to find out what they can do in order to further develop their own practice.
Louise also believes that what you put on your skin is as important as the food you eat, which is why she is a Weleda Wellbeing Advisor offering advice on pure, biodynamic skincare products.
Following with the principle of feeding both the body and the mind, Louise has a keen interest in Nutrition and qualified with a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy from the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM).
Louise on Yoga
“I’ve been brought up with an awareness of yoga all of my life and my own yoga journey started when I was a teenager. As life took over I stepped back from yoga, but came back to yoga in my 20’s when I began to suffer with depression and anxiety. It was when I started to develop a regular yoga practise that I began to realise that yoga was helping me to manage these symptoms. I found that by using the combination of breath, asana (poses) and meditation helped me to develop a deeper connection with my mind, body and overall wellbeing.
"Forrest Yoga was recommended to me by my yoga teacher and I found that the practise was the one that has really helped me to deepen my connection with the breath and helped me to heal my own anxiety and depression. I became a Forrest Yoga Teacher in 2016 and am excited about passing all I have learned and continue to learn, on to my students.”
