Testimonials from yoga students:
I really like the way Louise caters for individuals so I always feel safe and cared for and there is no sense of competition (except with myself). I like the way we are encouraged to do a little bit further each time, but with no sense of failure if one can’t. I appreciate the way Louise checks everyone’s personal state of health. I particularly enjoy links between postures, being able to build up to a posture step by step, making the end pose easier to achieve. I hoped to be more flexible and feel I am; I hoped to strengthen my back, and I have; I hoped to strengthen my pelvic floor and I have. I like what each pose is doing for different parts of the body.

More flexible. Excellent course. Best yoga tutor ever. She walks her talk. Excellent example. G. N.
I enjoyed all aspects and learning to get into each pose even deeper through breathing and understanding how my body works and challenging myself to go beyond my comfort zone in a comfortable manner. I am more supple, relaxed, breathing deeper – generally feeling overall calmer and content in my understanding of my body’s ability (despite ageing knees!), feeling my own advancement and capabilities growing throughout, and flowing postures using the breath. I have achieved improved flexibility, strength, as well as serenity and all health benefits. S. W.
I enjoyed the whole course. Louise is an excellent teacher. I feel I have achieved what I hoped to. G. R.
I enjoy the progressive aspect of the class, how we prepare for different postures, and I enjoy the sun salutations. Having a slightly different ‘theme’ each week seems to work different areas and produce a different effect on mind and body. I am maintaining and increasing flexibility and my shoulders are still improving. After a session the mind and body both feel refreshed. S. A.
More flexibility has been achieved and better balance. Teacher excellent. Good variety of poses. M. S.
I have enjoyed this class better than any other I have been to. Louise is a very dynamic and inspirational teacher. I surprised myself with achieving greater flexibility. I have a sense of achievement when my body does things I didn’t think it was capable of. I achieved greater flexibility and hopefully posture. M. B.
I enjoy all aspects. Excellent tuition. More suppleness achieved. A. D. I enjoyed everything. I enjoy the more challenging postures – good for calming the mind. B. G.
I enjoyed everything. I have had some pain in my lower back and some of the stretching poses helped enormously. M. H.
I am developing flexibility and becoming more focused and relaxing. Some improvement in my lower circulation. Just what I wanted. Great! L. S.
