"My first authentic experience of Yoga was in India in 2004", says Louise. "It was part of the regime at the Nature Cure hopsital where I was speaking - along with a vegan diet - and worked wonders for the residents, including me. Visiting India felt like coming home, and sowed the seeds of my future vocation as Yoga Teacher. I've been vegan for 36 years, and that was the first time I'd seen Yoga and a vegan diet used together. This approach is now my specialism, as the two practices are a match made in heaven. Combining them can be a powerful prescription. There's a synergy, they seem to potentise each other - simultaneously grounding and empowering us to reclaim control of our minds, bodies, and ultimately our lives"

Louise created World Vegan Day in 1994 and co-founded Karamel, the Time Out award-winning vegan restaurant and music venue in North London in 2014. 

Under the name Luminous, she also DJs, and sings in the band Luminous Frenzy. She was voted one of the 'World's Top 100 Female DJs' by Shejay magazine in the very first list of its kind.
