Calling in the Wisdom of Nature

Practices to connect deeply with nature and find balance within

‘Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better’ ~ Albert Einstein


Nature has long held a fascination for me. Its beauty, its resilience, its ability to make me pause in wonder and its never-ending wisdom that it offers.

Calling in the Wisdom of Nature is a journey of discovery held over 6 weeks bringing together the ancient teachings of yoga and meditation, the wisdom of nature and your amazing self-transforming brain that you can shape to create long lasting happiness and contentment.

Using the five elements of the earth as a basis, I will share with you how nature has influenced my self-development over the past 20 years or so. I have been incredibly fortunate to spend that time in a career that focused on wildlife conservation and I spent a great deal of time in the presence of nature. 

I will share how it helped me uncover my natural essence and bring to the surface my innate ability to live a life full of joy, ease, fulfillment, and peace.

Here's what you can expect each week

  • Week 1 - Intro to the Wisdom of Nature

    Nature has the ability to pause our busy minds, to stop us in our tracks and show us that magic and beauty is all around. We intrinsically know nature is good for us and when we allow it in, it has the power to open our hearts and nourish our souls. This week’s classes will be an introduction to the program, the five elements, the way they interact with one another and within us, and how nature can show us the way home.

  • Week 2 - Practice, Pause & Pace (Earth)

    The Earth element helps us to feel stable and rooted, grounded in our own inner knowing and self-confidence. During this week we will use the breath as a way to relax the body, we will practice poses that allow us to feel deeply rooted like a big old oak tree and then able to brave all sorts of storms and struggles and we will explore how we can bring these qualities into everyday life.

  • Week 3 - Resilience & Grace (Water)

    The water element can be strong, yet soft and fluid and teach us to recognise the resilience, grace and flow that lives within us naturally. Our physical practice will be all about fluid movements, oceanic breath and tapping into our emotional bodies so we can honour our intuition and follow our passions in life.

  • Week 4 - Growth & Change (Fire)

    Fire brings radiance, transformation and ultimately growth and change. During this week we will explore poses and breath work that strengthen our core and create internal heat so we can tap into our innate qualities of compassion, joyfulness, and enthusiasm.

  • Week 5 - Perspective & Appreciation (Wind)

    Clear communication, self-expression and love are all associated with the wind element in yoga. Here we will focus on how we can gain perspective on our thoughts, emotions and ultimately on our actions, decision making and how we move forward in life. This week we will use balanced breathing and heart opening sequences that connect us to the inner delight, freedom, positivity, and wisdom that lives inside us.

  • Week 6 - Magic in Every Moment (Space)

    Often the busyness of life makes us lose sight of the magic and wonder that is all around us and within us, we forget that it’s a small miracle that you and I even exist. We will conclude our program with an exploration of space that contains all the other elements, is the source of our intuition and higher wisdom and power, the light within that is our true nature. I will also share with you tangible, take-home practices that you can use on and off your mat.

'Yoga gives us peace and clarity in order to see the beauty and wonder that is all around us'

Louise Neicho

I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years and teaching for 8 and have completed around 1000hrs of teacher training. I can honestly say that yoga has saved my life on more than one occasion and I don’t think I would be the person I am today if it wasn’t for my practice. My fascination with the human brain has also started to seep into my practice and teachings and I’m excited to be studying an MSc in Mindfulness and Neuroscience. To bring all of this together is simply a dream come true and I hope you will join me and our like-minded community soon.

What others are saying about Louise's teaching

'I love the variety and convenience'

by Sally Bond

I am so glad I decided to join your yoga classes online. I can’t tell you how beneficial I have found them. I love the variety and convenience of the classes and more than anything the spiritual side and mindfulness that you bring to the classes. I have found the last few months difficult to deal with but your classes have helped me so much.

'Positively affect my day'

by Lindsey Hamilton

Taking time out to think about your wellbeing (both physical & mental) shouldn’t be a luxury but we almost treat it as such. Lou’s classes make me focus on my whole well being, the sunrise yoga classes help me set my mindset & positively affect the quality of my day.

'Balanced classes'

by Liz Timpson

The courses are a wonderful balance of discovering the physical sensations of yoga alongside meditation and mindfulness. I really look forward to the online sessions and still feel connected to a community. The latter is created by Louise who has been fantastic at developing her clients’ ability.

Your Questions Answered

  • How is this different to other yoga classes?

    This course is designed to take you gently and slowly into the deeper layers of the mind, each week building on your understanding of the workings of the mind and the tools and techniques that you can use on and off your mat. The difference to regular yoga classes is that we focus on one particular emotion or area of the mind, as well as a physical focus in the body each week. You get to explore this theme for a whole week on and off the mat, building your awareness and focus.

  • Which class should I choose

    There 4 different styles to choose from each week and how you choose will depend on whether you have practiced yoga before or not and what you would like to gain from your practice. If you are new to yoga or haven’t practiced in a while, I would suggest starting with the Gentle & Restorative, Yin Yoga and Flow & Reflect on a Monday PM. If you are familiar with vinyasas then you’ll love the Flow & Reflect classes on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings and if you’re looking for more stillness, deep physical stretches and meditation techniques then Yin Yoga will be for you.

  • What do I need to begin?

    You will need a yoga mat and comfortable clothing that you can easily move around in, PJ’s work well for this! For some of the classes you will need some props, but we have been experimenting with household pillows, cushions and blankets in place of traditional yoga props. I will let you know at the beginning of class what you need.
