Louise qualified as an Iyengar yoga teacher in 2010 and currently holds the Junior Intermediate 1 certificate. She first studied yoga as a teenager, when luckily at that time Iyengar Yoga was on her school curriculum and was taught at the Sobell Centre. She rediscovered the Iyengar method when her children were small, found herself drawn to it and took it up more regularly. She trained and continues to study under the guidance of Senior teacher Alaric Newcombe. She also attends classes with Uday Bhosale and Penny Chaplin and she has travelled to Pune to study with the Iyengar family. She believes wholeheartedly in the physical and emotional benefits of practising and progressing with Iyengar Yoga and in the great rewards that can come when you weave yoga into your life. Louise aims to teach with focus, clarity and humour and enjoys helping students to progress. She teaches in Stoke Newington and at home. Her other interests and professional activities are in drama and film. She is currently studying for a PhD in Film at the University of Reading.
