Louisa first came to yoga for rehabilitation when a biking accident broke her back. Initially working with Martin Jackson in Sydney in 1987, she learnt to apply yoga to realign her skeletal structure, thus removing the debilitating pain of her injury.
Louisa opened her first yoga centre in Nelson in 1994, then moved to the Bay of Islands in 1999 to establish the Kerikeri Yoga Centre.
In 2006 an old church hall was relocated from Hikurangi, lovingly restored and modified into a perfect yoga studio for Iyengar Yoga.
Louisa Potter is a certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher, to the level of JI3. The certification is recognised worldwide for its qualifications.
