About Louise

My love for trav­el­ling start­ed when I was young. My par­ents come from dif­fer­ent coun­tries and we moved to the Mid­dle East when I was five years old. I grew accus­tomed to liv­ing in new places and grew up with peo­ple from many cul­tures. This still moti­vates me to ven­ture fur­ther and explore far away places. Look­ing down on the world from the top of a moun­tain fills me with awe and gives me a feel­ing of being con­nect­ed with nature. Going to new places some­times takes me out of my com­fort zone.

Yoga is part of my inward jour­ney. On this jour­ney I come across beau­ti­ful places and some­times encounter chal­lenges on the way. I find that one of the best things about trav­el­ling is shar­ing your expe­ri­ences with oth­ers. Now set­tled in Delft, I con­tin­ue my jour­ney inwards while shar­ing with new people.

 
 
 
 

Critical Alignment Yoga teacher

I was drawn to the med­i­ta­tive approach of Crit­i­cal Align­ment Yoga, which empha­sis­es the use of relax­ation and the breath to achieve a nat­ur­al pos­ture. A lot of atten­tion is giv­en to aware­ness of your body and your pos­ture through the breath, and this is what I teach.

After com­plet­ing the Crit­i­cal Align­ment Yoga teacher train­ing in Ams­ter­dam, I trav­elled in India, France and Por­tu­gal. Adven­tur­ing out­side and with­in, my jour­ney pro­gressed while study­ing Osho active med­i­ta­tion tech­niques, Aqua-float­ing, Water ther­a­py, Heal­ing Dance, Shaman­is­tic Vision Quest and Aura Read­ing. Always work­ing with the breath, increas­ing aware­ness and learn­ing to let go and sur­ren­der to the flow of life.
