Louisa took her first yoga class at Bikram Yoga of Corvallis in about 2006 after her friend and boss at the time kept encouraging her to go.
She had taken a “yoga for relaxation” class that did nothing for her. Being a heat lover, she found her first class to be exceptional and the best workout of her life. Yoga is now a huge part of her life and does everything for her. She feels she can relate almost any life experience or feeling to what happens in the yoga room. Everything is connected and yoga means union.
Louisa completed Raja Yoga Teacher Training in the Spring of 2018 and started teaching the 2nd day back from training. She knows for sure that yoga heals, since she went to training with pain and now can practice asanas, her nursing profession and enjoy activities she loves with minimal to no pain.
Louisa is a nurse, lactation consultant, wife, mother of 2 grown children and has and Aussie and 2 cats. She loves nutrition, writing, gardening, yoga (duh), belly dancing, hiking and connecting with nature. Her greatest joy has been watching her children grow into amazing humans while also getting to be entertained by all their amazing talents in dance, music and overall coolness.
If Louisa could influence humans to do only 2 things, it would be to have everyone go to yoga and for everyone to be excellent to each other.
