Louisa teaches Lunge Japanese Yoga to help people bring a healthy balance into their lives.
She first started her personal yoga practice over twenty years ago when she set out to find a way to cure her chronic back ailment. At the time Louisa was working intensely as a professional architect. After achieving great success in relieving her own chronic pain and discomfort she gradually became more deeply involved in how yoga can become a positive agent for change in both a physical and mental sense.
Louisa, is a trained diagnostic yoga therapist. She obtained her initial diploma in Ryoho Therapy Yoga and enjoys the various facets of this style but has continued to deepen her understanding and wisdom of yoga over the years. Ryoho is based strongly on Oki-DO Yoga (founded by Master Masahiro Oki), which includes correction exercises for various conditions of the body. This is a holistic philosophy with innovative forms of movement that enhance the traditional approach to yoga.
Louisa is considered an expert in corrective therapeutic techniques which address an individual’s body habits and make-up and may include consideration of chronic ailments and diseases. This is further enhanced by her practice of corrective Zen Shiatsu Therapy, a practice which thoroughly complements a yoga practice.
