Louise trained with Alaric Newcombe, one of the top Iyengar teachers in the UK, and teaches at two of the leading yoga studios in north-east London. Eisha has been in Louise's class for several months and was immediately struck by the gentle precision of her teaching: 'She teaches in a similar style to the senior Iyengar teachers I studied with in India, who will make you do several variations of each pose so that you really understand the correct alignment in a deeply embodied way'. If you want to go deeper in your practice and train your body to benefit, heal and strengthen from the energetics of correct alignment, Louise's retreat is for you. Louise is also an award winning film-maker and puppetry artist.
You will feel refreshed and relaxed after a week in the mountains breathing pure air and drinking fresh water. We will take you on guided walks and there will be opportunities to explore the beautiful local town, Chiavenna, with outdoor swimming in a natural pool and visiting the market for cheese.
