Yoga & Pilates in North London

About Louise Wallis

Mind Body Zone is run by Louise Wallis.

Welcome! I'm a holistic Yoga & Pilates Teacher with a background in performing arts. I originally trained in dance and exercise to music, before discovering the mind-body methods Pilates and Yoga. I'm a registered Senior Yoga Teacher trained in Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga, with a special interest in yoga's effect on our nervous system. I aim to spark curiosity in my students; about our internal lives, and how we can best meet our needs, both on and off the mat. I’m particularly passionate about Pranayama (yogic breathing) - a powerful tool for self-regulation - and science. By combining modern scientific knowledge with ancient yogic wisdom, I believe we can all lead more fulfilling lives.

I run regular Retreats in beautiful West Dorset. Join me on the next one: Summer Solstice Yoga Retreat from Friday 17th - Mon 20th June 2022

I've been teaching movement for over 20 years, and practised a vegan diet and lifestyle for 38 years. Scroll down for qualifications & training.
