Sri Louise began her Yoga practice at the Jivamukti Center in NYC in 1993, where she sites Allison West as her first and more inspiring Asana Teacher. Influenced by her own life as a Contemporary Dancer and specifically the field of Somatics, Sri teaches an integrative approach to Asana. Teaching for 20 years, she has developed a unique pedagogical process for understanding Asana within the larger philosophical framework of Advaita Vedanta, which she refers to as Embodied Cognition. Sri has conducted 6 Yoga Teacher Training programs on 3 different continents and is esteemed as a teacher's teacher.
Sri Louise has been a disciple of Swami Dayananda Saraswati since 1999 and is the visionary behind the Underground Yoga Parlour for Self-Knowledge and Social Justice, in Oakland, California, where she teaches Asana classes that fuse physical honesty and cognitive clarity with social responsibility. Sri Louise is deeply concerned with issues surrounding Race & Culture, especially the intersection of whiteness and Yoga and maintains a blog PostYoga to explore Postcolonial dynamics in Western approaches to Yoga.
