Loup Yoga /lu:p/
Loup Yoga aims to support and encourage people to live healthily, happily and humanely. It does this through yoga, which includes the physical practice, breath work, meditation and mindful decision-making.
The multi-faceted philosophy of Loup Yoga results in a holistic pursuit. Many figures have influenced Loup Yoga's ideology and philosophy, cumulating in this venture. It draws on the wisdom of the yoga sutras of Patanjali, the anthropological studies of Yuval Noah Harari and Michael Pollan's insight into where nature and culture intersect. The most important aspect is to translate the wisdom and guidance available to us into practical action for tangible results.
Loup Yoga does this by offering honest physical and mental practices to support people moving towards this healthier way of life, that respects themselves, others and the planet we live on. We focus on:
LOUISE DE MENTHON /ld:m/
After finishing a Master's Degree at Edinburgh University, Louise started working for the Human Rights Commission in London, before studying Arabic in Oman to compliment her job as Editor and Research Developer. On returning to the UK, Louise decided to re-focus on education. Having previously worked in special needs schools, Louise has a passion for developing the education environment to make it accessible for all. Louise worked at KIDS charity in London, developing Education, Health and Care Plans for disabled children to ensure they were receiving quality education to foster development.
Inspired by her experiences at KIDS, Louise became fascinated by education in the context of International Development, being passionate about playing her part towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Subsequently, Louise moved to Ghana with International Service to run a project fighting against disability discrimination, with a focus on sustainable inclusivity of the disabled community within education and society. Louise worked as the director of an international development charity based in India and the UK, focusing on improving education for socio-economically disadvantaged children. Louise began practising yoga in 2015, and found it to be a transformative practice.
Despite remaining passionate about humanitarian work, Louise felt compelled to complete a 200 hour Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher Training course with All Yoga in Indonesia, and is now working full time to spread the powerful and transformative effects of Yoga.
