BIO: "My first authentic experience of Yoga was in India in 2004", says Louise. "It was part of the regime at a Nature Cure hospital where I was speaking - along with a vegan diet - and worked wonders for the residents, including me.

I'd be vegan for many years, but this was the first time I'd seen Yoga and a vegan diet used together. An approach that is now my specialism. There's a synergy between these two practices, and combining them can be a powerful prescription for wellbeing. As they can support us to regain some autonomy and control over our bodies and minds, and thus 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.

In 2018, with fellow vegan Yoga teacher Rachel Spain, she co-founded Veganahata, an events company promoting Yoga and veganism via talks, retreats and workshops. The name is a fusion of vegan and anahata (the heart chakra). 

Louise performs under the name Luminous, as a DJ and singer (in the band Luminous Frenzy) and was named one of the 'World's Top 100 Female DJs' in the first list of its kind by Shejay magazine.
