Louise Luiggi

KRI (Kundalini Research Institute) 

Kundalini Yoga Teacher

Louise specialises in Kundalini Yoga and is also a fully qualified Watsu Practitioner. After many years of following the path of years of conditioning – uni, career, marriage, wife & mother – all the traditional labels that had to be ticked in order to experience so-called success, Louise felt unconnected to herself. This changed when she fell upon Kundalini yoga and trained as a teacher. Louise is passionate about helping people self heal through the power of yoga.

Emma Snape

QTS, BSc Psychology (Hons)

X-HAIL Meditation Teacher and Wellbeing Mentor

Emma specialises in guided meditation and is also a mum of two and primary school teacher. Trying to juggle all the expectations of life: parent, professional, colleague, friend, daughter led Emma to search out ways to deal with the mounting stresses placed upon her by herself and from outside. Emma trained to teach pregnancy and postnatal yoga; supporting mums-to-be and new mums to enjoy a positive pregnancy and to work through those confusing times that motherhood brings. Wanting to support others outside of the perinatal period, led Emma to train in meditation. Emma is passionate about helping others to find a meditation practice that suits them and their lifestyle.
