"I just want to say how much we both enjoy your classes. We often work in stressful situations and take so much strength from your classes on a day to day basis, using your breathing techniques to help us through. Thank you for teaching us this incredible life skill, we appreciate your classes so much." Lissa and Bryan, Bishopston
Experience and Qualifications
I've been practicing yoga and meditation since my twenties and began teaching in early 2007. I qualified as a teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga, completing the 500 hour Teaching Diploma over a 3 year period. I relocated from Liverpool to Wales in 2012, living in Gower, south Wales for 5 years, before relocating to Whitland in Carmarthenshire, west Wales in December 2017.
My approach is influenced by the mindfulness teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and the yoga of Vanda Scaravelli. If you're interested, here are details of my training and continuing professional development.
"I cannot recommend Lou highly enough to work with Professional athletes. She has worked with large groups, small groups and individually with all level of players and the feedback has been excellent throughout. She has handled large and challenging groups very well and has enforced discipline in the groups in a gentle way. We have tried several yoga teachers before her and many of them were not able to command the group as Lou can. She has also been very flexible and importantly very reliable. "
