Luisa left the police force after growing her family in 2016, retraining as a yoga teacher, fitness instructor, pre & postnatal exercise coach, GP exercise referral coach, and personal trainer. She has since built up over 1,000 hours of teacher training, hosted bootcamps, workshops and weekend retreats across the South West of the UK and is an Ambassador for the empowering Sport England ‘This Girl Can’ campaign. In 2019 she very proudly came Runner-Up in the uplifting women’s ‘Muddy Stilettos’ Awards, as Best Yoga Teacher, out of hundreds of nominations covering Bath, Bristol and Somerset.
Turning forty recently, Luisa’s days are currently spent a little more quietly, managing the rehabilitative gym venue, ‘The Beach Wellness’, for the county-wide sports charity ‘Somerset Activity & Sports Partnership’. In summer months she cheerleads local women to bring their yoga mats to the beach shore, and then dip into the sea for a paddle or swim. Throughout the year she coaches a small number of women living with long-term-health-conditions to improve their health, on a one-to-one basis in her own garden-based studio, affectionately named ‘The Yoga Cabin’.
Luisa has recently brought the international Little Free Library project to her hometown, is currently studying to become a CIMSPA accredited peri to post menopause coach, and is forever working on writing a book.
Her focus for 2021 is still firmly on simplifying her own life …whilst gently sharing what she discovers, inspiring other women to do just the same.
She is utterly in love with her daughter Fern, son Rory, and oh-so-patient, golf-mad husband, Paul. At weekends they can all be found adventuring in their VW campervan with their crazy lurcher/whippet puppy Monty-Blue, and mindfully hiking the 630 mile South West Coast Path.
If she ever had some spare time Luisa would probably throw away her phone, go to a spa for several weeks, and most-likely drink prosecco in a dressing gown.
