S-H_Louise-Diana_004

She is known for her uplifting yoga style, integration of music along with her own brand of wit and wisdom.

 

Question #1 After a long winter, do you have a routine or ritual to prepare your body for Spring?
Since I live at the beach in Santa Monica, CA, I have a lifestyle created around my location and teach yoga all year long outside as well as inside. During the cooler months I increase my hiking in the mountains and tend to amp up spinning indoors followed by weight training. When time permits you can find me doing some ecstatic dance or Zumba. Once a week I do laps in an indoor pool.

 

Question #2 Have you ever made a drastic change to your fitness routine to help you accomplish a specific goal? What was it and how did you accomplish it?
When I traveled around India for three years, it was an accomplishment to stay focused and healthy. Doing yoga under all new circumstances and locations challenged my beliefs and kept bringing me back to “beginners mind”. I started and ended every day with meditation and chanting. That’s what gave me routine and left me open for all the wonderful experiences I had. In addition, graduate school was a beast and just maintaining my practice and teaching was a victory.

 

Question #3 What is one thing you must do to start your day off right?

Every morning, I awake and do pretty much the same thing. I cover the basics…brush teeth, wash face, minimal makeup and make my bed…I am particular about that and have a LOT of pillows so it’s a moving meditation in itself. Something about cleaning up my bedroom sets the tone for the day. I drink room temperature water all day and start with an 8oz glass with a squeezed lemon followed by a rice bran/probiotic drink or green tea, which is delicious. And I’m ready to start my day!”
