About

Louise Pitman
Yogini

I've been practicing yoga on and off for over 12 years. I noticed that the times I tended to return to practice was when I needed to bring some balance back into my life. It was following a bereavement in 2017 and at a low point that I can honestly say that yoga got me through. This wonderful practice brought me peace at a time I needed it most, it really is so beneficial for mind, body and spirit.

I decided to complete my 200 hour yoga teacher training (YTT) in 2018, following the Sivananda lineage, in the Hatha tradition. I thrive on continuous professional development and have since furthered my offering by undertaking various workshops and training. My true calling is working with women and the scared womb, see the womb tab for these offerings.

In my classes, 1:1 sessions, workshops and retreats it's important to me that I hold a safe space for all who practice with me. Paying particular attention to the breath, classes contain pranayama (breathing exercises) asana (the postures) and an opportunity for swadyaya (self study/self awareness). I encourage my students to develop a sense of curiosity in their practice to find what feels good. The individual yogi really does have the best knowledge of what their body is capable of, my job is to guide you safely. 

My 'other life' has been working within the Criminal Justice System for over 20 years, using psychological techniques to support people make effective change in their life. I am a Reiki Practitioner and love to infuse my restorative practices with Reiki energy. This rounded experience really does support me to take care of you mind, body and soul. I look forward to meeting you soon, Louise
