Louisa Sear Interview

louisaIt was great to be able to catch up with Louisa Sear at her new retreat center, ‘The Shala Bali’. Louisa started running yoga teacher trainings over 20 years ago, back in the day when they lasted 9 months. One of the things we talk about in this interview is the key facets that have remained as the trend has been for shorter and shorter courses. The development of a personal practice is one of the things that Louisa feels is important for creating awareness and we delve into how to  promote this and the pitfalls to look out for. Amongst other things we  discuss how she started out in yoga, what it means to live in a yogic way and how to create a practice that supports you and lasts throughout your life.
