2 hour workshop
Arm Balances and Inversions are generally a goal for many yoga practitioners as they are so fun and empowering. Louise will ensure we are working safely and patiently towards achieving these crazy poses!
We will work on strengthening the required muscles, as well as deconstructing the poses to understand which parts of our body we are using and why.
The focus of this workshop is on playfulness and fun! We will be trying all sorts of things… whilst remembering we won’t get everything straight away.
This workshop includes demonstrations, partner work, active participation and lots of playing.

About your host, Loup Yoga
Loup Yoga, run by Louise, aims to support and encourage people to live healthily, happily and humanely. It does this through yoga, which includes the physical practice, breath work, meditation and mindful decision-making.
Many figures have influenced Loup Yoga's ideology and philosophy, cumulating in this venture. It draws on the wisdom of the yoga sutras of Patanjali, the anthropological studies of Yuval Noah Harari and Michael Pollan's insight into where nature and culture intersect. The most important aspect is to translate the wisdom and guidance available to us into practical action for tangible results.
After finishing a Master's Degree at Edinburgh University, Louise started working for the Human Rights Commission in London, before studying Arabic in Oman to compliment her job as Editor and Research Developer. On returning to the UK, Louise decided to re-focus on education. Having previously worked in special needs schools, Louise has a passion for developing the education environment to make it accessible for all. Louise worked at KIDS charity in London, developing Education, Health and Care Plans for disabled children to ensure they were receiving quality education to foster development.
Inspired by her experiences at KIDS, Louise became fascinated by education in the context of International Development, being passionate about playing her part towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Subsequently, Louise moved to Ghana with International Service to run a project fighting against disability discrimination, with a focus on sustainable inclusivity of the disabled community within education and society. Louise began practising yoga in 2015, and found it to be a transformative practice.
Despite remaining passionate about humanitarian work, Louise felt compelled to complete a 200 hour Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher Training course with All Yoga in Indonesia, and is now working full time to spread the powerful and transformative effects of Yoga.
