Astanga Yoga London

Louise Newton

Louise is authorised to teach the Astanga system and is a qualified teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga.

Louise started her career as a Chartered Accountant and, during a secondment to Australia, found Eileen Hall in Yoga Moves, Sydney, who guided her onto the path of Astanga yoga. On her return to London, Louise followed her heart and left the corporate world to teach yoga. She began assisting Hamish in 2005 and is now one of the teachers of the morning Mysore programme. Louise made her first trip to Mysore in 2006.

Louise loves working in the shala. As a teacher, it is important to her to create a supportive and safe space for students to explore, deepen and own their practice. She considers it an honour to help them on their journey.

Louise teaches the Sunday morning and weekday mid morning classes. She also teaches the monthly led class.

In common with all the teachers at AYL, Louise is DBS checked, qualified in First Aid and Mental Health First Aid, and has completed ‘Trauma Informed’ and ‘Race Awareness’ trainings.
