Louise has been involved in sports and dance since her teen years. She began her yoga journey in the 60’s at the age of 15. Initially she was attracted to yoga mostly for meditation, chanting, and pranayama/breathing. Her daily practice was mostly Raja Yoga (yoga of the mind) until she moved to Toronto in 1994 and she began to regularly practice Hatha Yoga (physical yoga). Under the encouragement of her own yoga teacher, she began teaching yoga. She has always been thankful to yoga as it helped her to recover from a car accident, which occurred in 1989 and almost paralyzed her.
She has since received many Yoga and fitness Certifications, including canfitpro (FIS, PTS, HWL, Resist-A-Ball Core Training and Pilates and Yoga) and East to West Yoga 500 hours Certification and she is registered with YOGA ALLIANCE.
She has attended numerous fitness and yoga trainings with famous names in the industry.
