Sri Louise's personal practice is steeped in over 20 years of dedicated research into Yoga and the embodied self. Her teaching process is geared towards helping students understand how to functionally support their individual structure. Using simple movement patterns she has developed specifically for accessing Asana, students find they able to inhabit the pantheon of Asanas with ease and self-confidence.
Sri Louise does not extrapulate Asana from the wider sphere of Yoga that it belongs to. It's precisely Yoga's roots in Hinduism that makes Asana meaningful. Her asana classes begin and end with Kirtana, a call and response form of prayer, to awaken the devotee, the one who is in appreciation of all that is here. As a student of Vedanta, Sri attends to Asana in the realm of Advaita, non-duality, exlporing how the individual parts relate to the collective whole. 
Classes and workshops explore positionality and connectivity and the various degress of cognitive dissonance that many white, Euro-Americans maintain in their quest for personal freedom and spiritual well being. Sri Louise is part of an international movement to decolonize the colonial perspective and her classes situate themselves in this global awakening by deconstructing the imperial privileges of the global north on the body/mind.  
Sri Louise is available for private, semi-private and group classes. She is happy to be part of your teacher-training program to help students glean a more profound insight into the practice and philosophy of Yoga. Sri is able to lecture on the Upanisads, Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutra. Sri Louise also conducts workshops in Sanskrit Alphabet for Pronunciation. These workshops can be tailored to proper pronunciation of Yogic terms and also towards relearning commonly chanted, but mis-appropriated Vedic mantras in the Yoga world.

Sri Louise helps students and teachers alike value the teachings and religious culture of Sanatana Dharma. Yoga is more than a life style, it's a world view. Traditionally, Yoga is considered a Moksa Sadhana, a means for liberation. In modern times, there is nothing more relevant.
