Awakening to your True Nature

Practices to find inner calm and happiness that is your true nature

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.” ~ Eckhart Tolle


Science is now revealing how the flow of thoughts actually sculpts the brain and how we can use this knowledge to rewire it for greater well-being and peace of mind.

This programme brings together this research and the ancient teachings of yoga, to give you real-life practical tools and skills that you can use on and off the mat.

It will enable you to dive deep into the emotional sides of being human and give you practical tools and techniques to navigate the challenges of everyday life and find inner calm and happiness that is your true nature.

'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.
