Outdoor Kundalini Yoga, 90min - Tuileries, RIGHT GROVE


This class is taught by:

Louise Cutler

French speaking
Louise is originally from England, where she grew up in beautiful Cornwall. In 2001 she moved over to Brittany and in 2009 Louise moved to Paris for her job as store manager in an organic Naturalia shop. After leaving this stressful and exhausting job, Louise decided to stay and teach yoga in Paris.
 
Louise is a huge fan of cooking and eating! As a vegetarian, she combines flavours, spices and origines to create a colourful, healthy, international fusion.
She loves to travel, to meet new people, discover places, ideas, and collecting recipes where ever she goes.
 
Louise followed an intensive 200h classical yoga teacher training in Spain in 2013. This is where she learned the basics of alignment and asana, aswell as breathing and relaxation techniques and meditation.
In 2015, Louise followed one of her inspiring teachers in a ten week ayurveda course, the Dinacharya, where she discovered the basics of ayurveda and how to bring it into everyday life to live a more peaceful, happy and healthy life.  She has also studied crystal healing, Korean relaxation massage and Reiki.
 
In her own practice, Louise enjoys the natural mix of subtle and dynamic movement. Being on her mat and listening to her body and practicing what it asks for. She especially loves the energy created in a slow, mindful, expansive flow which balances both the body, the mind and the more subtle elements of the self.
As much as possible Louise moves from the heart when on the mat, she also reminds herself regularly to smile and have fun !
In the past few years, breath work and mantra have eased themselves into her practice, as well as self massage and gratitude.
 
Louise's classes are light hearted with a positive and optimistic vibe. She encourages students to listen to their body, to feel their breath and to relax into each posture.
In each class Louise focuses on alignment, grounding and expanding.   Falling over, cracking joints and laughter are all welcome in her classes which begin with intention and finish in gratitude.
Kundalini Yoga consists of active and passive asana-based kriyas (exercises), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditations which target the whole body system (nervous system, glands, mental faculties, chakras) to develop awareness, consciousness and spiritual strength. Kundalini Yoga is a yoga that uses the angles of the body through alignment to allow for maximum flow of energy from the base of the spine to the crown of the head (Also known as the chakra system). Each Kundalini class includes a warm-up, dynamic movement, relaxation and meditation. The physical practice and meditation of the class are to prepare the body for the flow of Kundalini energy.
This class is taught in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.
