Louise had her first experience of Yoga in her 30’s, being fortunate in finding classes with two gifted local teachers Emma Lloyd and then Jane Craggs. She expected to find an interesting form of exercise but through their classes she experienced much more… she has not stopped practicing since!
Louise explored many different types of yoga and completed a three-year teaching diploma in 2006 with the British Wheel of Yoga. During this time she was involved in the establishment of Manchester Yoga Shala with Jane Craggs and Heidi Chadwick delivering accessible yoga classes in the heart of Manchester for 5 years.
In 2007, Louise had the wonderful opportunity to complete intensive teacher training with the Mohan family (A.G. Mohan, Indra Mohan and Ganesh Mohan), this was a life changing experi-ence. Since then Louise continues her studies with these dedicated and compassionate teachers, visiting India to study with them and following their on-line study course. Together with Jane Craggs, Louise is now teaching classes, retreats, workshops and clinics as Svastha Yoga Manchester.
Louise is committed to sharing the fulfilling practice of yoga with as many people as possible regardless of their age, shape, size, race, religion… This therapeutic, transformative practice is for everyone; through yoga we can free ourselves from destructive mental behaviours and live healthy, fulfilled lives.
