Louise Simmons: Curious Movements in Mysterious Depths
.   Sharing an intuitive, exploratory Hatha yoga practice

pic of louise simmons "This is an experiential approach continuously informed by my deepening practice and ongoing precious time with my mentor, Diane Long  (and through her the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli).  It is not a method or a training.  There are no dogmatic instructions, no hierarchy of knowledge, but rather suggestions and observations which may assist you to go deeper into your relationship with your own intelligent body, enlivened by breath, and gently tethered by gravity.   It asks for and develops generosity of attention and humble listening to the quiet spaces inside. "  

Louise became fascinated by the body/mind/breath connection through the dramatic arts and running theatre games workshops. This took her deeper into the ‘stories’ our bodies tell us and she has been delving into those stories through teaching yoga and hands-on bodywork since 1991. Kerry worked with Louise in Greece in 2017 and found a deep connection to presence and freedom from effort through Louise's teaching. This 'peace yoga' as Kerry likes to call it, is primal, profound, transformative and inherently kind.
