Louise Curran - Teacher Profile
Louise’s introduction to yoga came at a youthful age with yoginis Mum and older sister in the home. During her early working life, Louise went to classes in local gyms and only acknowledged the physical benefits of yoga. It was not until her move to Ireland in 2008 that Louise began to explore yoga inside the body – triggering an awareness and experience of the connection between mind and body through breath.
To continue this exploration, in 2013 Louise embarked on a 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training Programme at Ananta Yoga & Ayurveda. Louise began teaching beginners Hatha Yoga through the Vinyasa system at Ananta Yoga & Ayurveda under the guidance of Liz Richards towards the end of her two-year training. Louise is grateful for the opportunity to teach and the consistent encouragement and support that Liz has provided since Louise’s first class at The Ananta Yoga Studios. Louise assists on teacher training courses at Ananta Yoga & Ayurveda.
Louise has continued to study Yoga for authentic knowledge and as guidance to her practice and teaching. She studies primarily with, but not limited to, Sri Srivatsa Ramaswami and Stephen Brandon since 2016. Sri Srivatsa Ramaswami is a faithful disciple of the legendary Krishnamacharya. Stephen Brandon a senior student of Srivatsa Ramaswami. These courses include 100-hour Advanced Teacher Training course with Srivatsa Ramaswami (Germany 2016, Chennai and Wicklow 2018), and 95-hour Comprehensive Training course with Stephen (UK & Ireland 2017-2018). She continues to attend trainings with Srivatsa Ramaswami and Stephen Brandon – including a 300-hour Practitioner and Teacher Training course at Ananta Yoga & Ayurveda.
Louise is passionate about teaching Chair Yoga to those with limited mobility to provide them with the benefits too of Yoga. These students are the most profound teachers of resilience and empowerment. Chair Yoga trainings have been with Yoga Vista Academy, Claire Osborne, Irish Yoga Association, Yoga Therapy Ireland, LV Chair Yoga and Accessible Yoga. She is delighted to now be co-teaching on Claire’s Chair Yoga course.
Louise is intrigued by Ayurveda (the ancient science of health and well-being) and has covered courses with David Frawley (Vedanet) and Stephen Brandon. This is as part of an application of Yoga as a therapy. Bringing Ayurveda into her everyday diet and lifestyle has enhanced the awareness of a more holistic and pleasant way of living.
