Louise Ellis is a direct and long-term student of Sri K Pattabhi Jois, and one of the few women to have been Certified by him to teach ashtanga yoga. She began her yoga practice in 1971 with the traditional study of hatha yoga, pranayama, and philosophy under Swami Vishnudevananda. Louise’s background as both a student and teacher in several diverse systems of yoga spans over forty years, and informs her teaching style. She believes that, by steady, consistent practice, we develop the ability to stay with change in our daily life experiences in a direct and open way.

“No matter which sequence you happen to be doing at a given time the important ant thing is the quality of attention and sense of lightness you bring to it. It’s an art form to approach each day's practice without expectation and with a sense of perspective.”
